SI - Surf Guitar Comp

I went shopping so you don't have to. Every now and then a store vanity label comes up with something really good. This is one of those few times. Here is one of the most enjoyable comps I have ever heard, that's saying alot from being in the business for over 30 years.
It is a showcase for 2 of my favorite modern surf groups -- The Blue Hawiians and Jetpack -- both full lengths can be found in Fat City's archives. There are a few excellent cuts by the Boss Martins/Evan Foster and the obligatory inclusion of Dick Dale to round it out. Thorughly rad from beginning to end. This one is good enough to have a permanent place in yur collection.
Lounge patrons should already have the BH's and Jet Pack, if not, this is a good way to sample their excellently tasty wares. For new customers, this is one BOSS beginning for catching a wave.
