Phil Dirt - Reverb Central - PO Box 1609, Felton, CA 95018-1609 USA Collection: The Big Surfing Sounds Are On Capitol Records
|This seven inch ep from 1964 is much rarer than it is interesting. Two ho-hum vocals, and two lesser instros. Still, it's very hard to find.|
Picks: Bronze Surfer
Track by Track Review
"Thunder Wave" seems like a studio construction without much real meat. It's more like a fifties R&B groove than a surf instro, with prominent horns and an old-time rhythm.
Studio Jam (Instrumental)
High school prom song, written like it wants to be Richie Podolor, but can't find the pen. The vibrato lead is just fine, and it does have a pleasant sound. It's not bad, just second rate.
