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.

Nero's Neptune, 1972. New Copy (reissue)
Strange, tripped out avant soundscapes from early 70s Austria! Billowy bits of ghostly vocals are the connective tissue of this bit of weirdness – some of it strangely playful, some crowded and conversation, others bursting from the quiet to jarring effect. 10 tracks on 2 sides, they have ...
