Various - The Birth Of Surf vol.3 - Ace CD

Newly compiled by the guys from Pipeline Magazine, The Birth Of Surf Vol 3 follows the pattern of the earlier volumes in representing the influential pre-surf instrumental scene and then moving on through the genre's prime years of 1963 and 64 with a selection of hits and rare gems. Its 26 tracks includes rockin' contributions from influential acts such as Johnny & The Hurricanes, the genre-defining blast of Dick Dale on The Victor and follow-up singles from hit makers the Chantays (Scotch High's), Astronauts (Surf Party) and Pyramids (Pressure), none of which appeared on their albums. Alongside all of the big names and many hard-to-find recordings are no less than seven tracks appearing on CD for the first time. These include much sought-after rarities like Bonzai by the Baymen, Minor Chaos by the Treasures and Static by the Velvetones plus a previously unreleased gem from The deFenders aptly titled More Surf . The packaging includes a full colour illustrated booklet with authoritative track-by-track info in 5,000 words of text from Pipeline editor and North Sea Surf Radio DJ Alan Taylor. The Birth Of Surf Vol 3 is a match for its successful predecessors. It's an exciting listen, an attractive purchase for the casual buyer and an essential acquisition for collectors.
