Must Have Surf/Spy - The Blue Hawaiians - Sway

The Blue Hawaiians -- Sway

Must have surf/ spy for any good collection. One of my favorite surf-exotica-rockers with a slightly dark edge to their sound. This is their first studio effort, slightly more restrained that their live shows. Even with some nice vocals, these guys know they are really a surf band and they do their stuff admirably with covers of Mancini's Banzai Pipeline and Ritchie Polodor's Quiet Surf -one of the most beautiful renditions of this piece I've ever heard. They rock out on Deadman's and add a little bit of spy with Searchin' For Da Cat. Element 86 is an incredible 7 minute psychedelic swirl. This one is a keeper.
