Dick Dale At The Drags

LP (Item 631136) Capitol/Rock Beat, Mid 60s — Condition: New Copy
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.70 10

Surf guitar hits the drag strip – as Dick Dale makes the same move as most of his Cali contemporaries of the 60s – shifting his groove from waxed boards and woodies over to the world of hot rods! The sound's still pretty much the same, though – smoking instrumentals filled with Dale's amazing lines on guitar – a way of hitting the instrument that was a lot harder, heavier, and more frenetic than most other surf/instro players of the period – with a raw bite that arguably sets the scene for hard rock in the part of the decade to come! Vinyl version features 14 tracks rom Dale's hot rod recordings for Capitol – with cuts that include "50 Miles To Go", "Nitro Fuel", "Surf Buggy", "Firing Up", "Taco Wagon", "The Victor", "Mag Wheels", "Wild Wild Mustang", and "Night Rider".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Numero, 1967. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A young Sandy Denny, singing with The Strawbs in the years before she left to join Fairport Convention! This material predates the fame of all involved, but represents a key point in the UK folk scene – a time when there was still a bit more influence from US modes of earlier in the 60s, but ...

Third Man, 2014. New Copy
The most stylistically sprawling record yet from Jack White! White's trajectory from Detroit garage-blues-punk wunderkind to the Nashville record biz provocateur/label magnate is pretty damn impressive – and he really lets his far-reaching impulses fly on Lazzaretto.

Straight, Late 60s. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Incredible stuff – and one of Tim Buckley's greatest albums!

Sire, 1976. New Copy (reissue)
As great a rock & roll album as there's ever been! It's impossible to describe this record without sounding like a blow hard, but you really can't overstate what these four goony guys from Queens accomplished. 30-odd years of the most visceral pop music concentrated into 2 minute, 3 chord ...

Monitor, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)
One of the few straight rock records ever issued on the mostly-folk Monitor Records label – a great 60s outing from Freeborne, a group with a sound that's as tripped-out as you might expect from the cover! Instrumentation is heavy on organ and guitars, both acoustic and electric, but there's ... LP, Vinyl record album
