Tube - Atlantic Surf Essentials

Who'd a thunk it? A smattering of surf from the vaults of mega label Atlantic - not exactly known for it entry in the genre. Of course, the irony of it is NONE of these groups recorded anything beyond these singles/demos on Atlantic.
ranges from regular basics genre to excellent spy surf.
Highlights are the two cuts from the outstanding Fathoms and the Ray Corvair Trio (see archives).
Good to add to any surf collection.

Just got around to cracking this one open. Awsome stuff on it! Makes me want to kick myself for not getting to it earlier.

As always, thanks for sharing, my friend.

To set the record straight: This CD (Tube - Atlantic Surf Essentials) has nothing to do with Atlantic Records, who probably never released a surf record in their existence. This is a collection of East Coast (that is, Atlantic instead of Pacific) bands, some who appear on nothing else besides this compilation. The Fathoms started in the 1990's and as far as I know are still going strong. This disc was released in 1996 and all the songs on it were recorded around that time period. Nothing from the vaults. I just saw the comment about "from the vaults of Atlantic Records" and couldn't let it go...
