Product Description:

This lovingly curated Ace Records compilation traces the roots, trunk, and branches of that classic American genre, instrumental surf music. The 26-track collection goes back to the twangy '50s ditties of Link Wray and Duane Eddy, through chart topping '60s hits like Dick Dale's "Miserlou," through the lesser-known post-Beach Boys jangle of Eddie & The Showmen and Bob Hafner. It's a whammy-bar extravaganza that will enliven car trips and dance parties of discerning record geeks everywhere.
