The Tornadoes: Jesse Sanders (guitar); Gerald Sanders (bass guitar); George White, Leonard Delaney, Norman Sanders.
Personnel: Gerald Sanders (vocals); Norman Sanders (guitar); George White (saxophone); Leonard Delaney (drums).
Liner Note Author: Gerald Sanders.
Compilation drawing principally from their Aertaun 45s and Josie LP, with the addition of three previously unissued cuts (including two Link Wray covers), a number ("Charge of the Tornadoes") previously available only on a Sundazed release, and a 25-minute interview with the group, conducted in the 1990s. The Tornadoes were an above-average, though not upper-echelon, Californian surf band, notable for writing much of their material and possessing one of the better early surf guitarists in Roly Sanders. The vocals are kept to a minimum, which is a good thing. The interview is pretty interesting, including a couple unexpected stories about how a young Frank Zappa helped out on some of their vintage recordings. ~ Richie Unterberger
