King Of The Surf Guitar

CD (Item 631132) Capitol/Rock Beat, Early 60s — Condition: New Copy
Out Of Stock

CD


4.90 10

Classic guitar from one of the all-time greats – a smoking selection of rare Capitol and Deltone Records singles from the legendary Dick Dale – and virtually a blueprint for generations of surf guitar to come! Sure, there were loads of other great players up and down the Pacific coast back in the 60s – but Dick had a way of making things cook that was unlike anyone else – more of an edge, more of a rocking raw feel, and honestly, a lot more balls than most of his contemporary – as you'll hear in this classic set of cuts that includes "Tidal Wave", "Surfing Dreams", "Mr Peppermint Man", "A Run For Life", "Death Of A Gremmie", "Surfin Rebel", "Break Time", "The Wedge", "Shake N Stomp", and an archetypal recording of "Miserlou".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Rock Beat, Mid 60s. New Copy
Not The Beatles, but a group who are trying to cash in on their fame – by showing a monstrous Beatle wig on the cover of the album, covering a horde of dancers – and by playing a whole host of instrumentals with a nod to the Brit Invasion! We're guessing the Blue Beats were some ... CD

Somerset/Rock Beat, Mid 60s. New Copy
One of those great little 60s knockoff rock records – served up by a group of no-name musicians, but with a very groovy feel! We're guessing The Villains were a combo who were only cooked up for this project, but they've got a great sound throughout – a mod mix of garagey elements with ... CD

Capitol/Now Sounds (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy

Capitol (Japan), 1967. New Copy
Groovy 60s Brit pop from the team of Peter Asher and Gordon Waller – two cats who have a way of drawing on the harmonies of the Merseybeat generation, then sending the tunes home with a bit more individual charm! Most tracks here are hits from other artists – both British and American ... CD

Kooky, 2014. New Copy 2 CDs
One of the most beautiful albums we've heard in years from Vini Reilly – and a set that really takes back to the magic we felt when buying the first few Durutti Column albums on factory! Not only is the sound here very much the Durutti approach we first fell in love with – a strange ... CD

Warner/Real Gone, 1970. New Copy
These guys will forever be known for the jazzy grooving title hit – "Vehicle", a brassy driving number that seems as if it's always being used in some sort of car commercial (which must net these guys a lot of royalties!) – but which is usually mistaken by others for being the ... CD

#1 Record
Ardent/Stax, 1972. New Copy
The amazing first album from Big Star – a set that came out of nowhere, made hardly a ripple on the charts, yet went onto crash in big waves of sound for generations to come! The style here is unlike thing else before – hardly what you'd expect from the group's Memphis roots or Alex ... CD

Overjoyed
Joyful Noise, 2014. New Copy
It's been quite a few years since we last heard from Half Japanese, and we're definitely overjoyed at what we're hearing here – music that's as powerful and personal as the group were back at their start! At some level, we're amazed at how strong these guys still sound – rawer than ... CD

No Record
Lion, 1968. New Copy
Mad music from the Nihilist Spasm Band – a group who really live up to their name from the very first moments of the record! The set begins with "Destroy The Nations" – a track that's meaner, nastier, and more mindbending than anything you'll ever hear from any of the wildest ... CD

Numero, 1970s. New Copy
A really tremendous batch of dark-themed tunes from the American underground of the 70s – a treasure trove of under-discovered acts who were all inspired by the deeper brooding of the Led Zep and Black Sabbath generation! Unlike later manifestations from the indie scene, the work here isn't ... CD
