King Of The Surf Guitar

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.

Mindblowing music from The Association – a heady double-length package that features every single the group ever cut for the Valiant and Warner Brothers label – which together make for an amazing evolution in sound! Although best remembered for their few soft rock hits, The Association ... CD
Camera Loves Me
El/Richmond (UK), 1988. New Copy
One of the grooviest records to come out on the late lamented El label! Would Be Goods are a slightly-silly girl pop combo – with a style that's a bit like Bad Dream Fancy Dress (the other great girl group on El), but with a sound that's a little sweeter. The album's nice and cheesy, and ... CD
