VA - Surf Sand Sun

Decent comp is a collection of a lot of classic surfing recordings made in the 60's, PLUS 2 cuts by modern bands The Halibuts and Los Straightjackets. More filler than killer, this is what happens when you get a label trying to cash in on a trend that they don't understand. The classic stuff is a combination of hits and more obscure stuff so it's worth picking through for collectors. If you like surf music, this a good collection to start, with sides by The Ventures, The Challengers, The Belairs, and others.

1. High Tide (Tranquilizer) - The Lively Ones 2. Wipe Out - The Surfaris 3. Let's Go Trippin' - Dick Dale & the Del-Tones 4. Underwater - The Frogmen 5. Church Key - Barbara Adkins, Revels 6. Mr. Moto - The Bel-Airs 7. Surfer's Stomp - Mar-Kets 8. Bullwinkle, Pt. II 9. Let's Go - Routers 10. K-39 - The Challengers 11. Balboa Blue - Mar-Kets 12. Surfin' Bird - The Trashmen 13. Penetration - The Pyramids 14. Mr. Mysterioso - The Halibuts 15. Hawaii Five-O - The Ventures 16. Pacifica - Los Straitjackets
