Track by Track Review
Squiddly Diddly - Surf Busters
Children's Surf (Instrumental)
"Surf Busters" is the sort of thing that would be found as incidental music in those beach movies wit Frankie and Annette. That said, the drums and bass are very solid, and while the guitars are dry, the melody is pretty darn surfable. There's plenty energy despite the low volume employed in studio sessions in those days. So, it's worth checking out.
The Kingsmen - Haunted Castle Party
Those Louie Louie boys cut this early on. It's a rockin' jazzy organ grinder with a jammy sound and some cool guitar and drums breaks.
The Surf Teens - Moment Of Truth
From vinyl, this track is a solid cover of a classic of the period. It's uses the Original Surfaris' arrangement, focusing on the dark lead lines. Rhythmic and well delivered.
