Featuring more rare tracks from the second tier of surf and hot-rod performers, this volume is no less potent than the first. Highlights include the original version of "She Rides With Me" by Paul Petersen, "Bustin' Surfboards" by the Tornadoes, and "GeeTO Tiger" by the Tigers. Some interesting cuts are: "She Rides With Me", sung by Paul Petersen (from the Donna Reed Show), with the Beach Boys playing backup (!). Another good one is "Let's Go Where the Action Is" by Tommy Boyce (from the songwriting duo Boyce and Hart who wrote a lot of the hits later on for the Monkees). But there are some other rare gems here too that you will like. Couple of great songs by the Tornadoes (you should get their greatest hits in the archives -- as well, it rocks!), the Shutdowns, and the customs (featuring early surfing music legend Gary Usher.)
