THE BIRTH OF SURF vol.3

The Birth Of Surf Volume 3

 

”The Birth Of Surf Volume 3 is essentially a journey back to the glory days of the surf rock instrumentals. There’s twenty-six tracks from familiar faces and new names. Among the familiar faces is the founding father of the surf rock instrumental, Dick Dale. Joining Dick Dale and His Del-Tones are The Rip Tides, The Rumblers, The Sentinals, The Baymen, The Torquetts, The Rondells, Marrell’s Marauders and The Surfaris. That’s just a tantalising taste of The Birth Of Surf Volume 3. It was lovingly compiled by Alan Taylor and Dave Burke of Pipeline Magazine.

For anyone looking for an introduction  to the surf rock instrumental, then The Birth Of Surf series is the perfect starting point. Along with the the first two instalments in The Birth Of Surf series, The Birth Of Surf Volume 3 is the perfect primer to the surf rock instrumental.”more at [DereksMusicBlog]

It Came From The Beach/Beach Party Garpax [60’s Surf ‘n’ Drag]

 

… And again, surfin’ & draggin’ double feature on Surfadelic. Two fine collection of 60’s instros and vocal tunes from Downey and Garpax labels.

It Came from The Beach” compilation gets together all the surf and rocking instrumentals recorded at the Downey Studios or for Downey Records in the early 60s. Most were released on small indie boutique labels, if not on the Downey imprint itself. It comes with some prev. unreleased stuff as well as many tunes you could already heard on ”Surf Legends And Rumors” comp. but from different masters.

The other collection is based on the ‘Beach Party‘ album Gary Paxton released in 1964 on GSP plus many additional tracks from the archive. Contains half instros/half vocal [mostly surfin’ girl groups] and some previously unreleased tunes from the vaults of Gary Paxton’s Garpax Records. Some real cool stuff mixed with some so so, but pretty solid anyways. Let’s go to the beach!

 

 

 

GARY USHER – Hot Rod U.S.A. [1960-1965]

gary usher hot rod usa1

 

”This quasi-legitimate bootleg compilation collect 30 tunes (mostly hot rod & surf) that Usher had a hand in as producer and/or performer between 1960 and 1965, most taken from rare collector 45s.
The majority of tracks here are penned by Usher, from “The Battle Hymn of the Republic” rip-off “Lonely Surfer Boy”, to two 1960 singles released under Gary Usher’s own name: “You’re The Girl” (which was his first 45, released on the Titan label) and its b-side “Driven Insane” which has backing vocals by future Honeys member Ginger Blake; solo compositions like The Wheel Men’s “School Is A Gas,” the instrumental “Gear!” and The Pyramids “Custom Caravan.” An unusual chord structure and prominent piano solo distinguish The Pendletons “Barefoot Adventure” and the ultra-rare comedy track “Wave Hog” which is sung by Gary Usher – is credited to the Silly Surfers and was commissioned for a model-kit building company! Following this is two follow-up tracks: “Francis The Foul” (which is about a cheating football player) and “Leaky Boat Louie”, both taken from a 1965 comedy album by the Weird-Ohs. Other highlights are the Four Seasons-inspired “Shame Girl” b/w “I’ve Got Plans” by the Neptunes, Gary Usher’s Beatlesque ”It’s A Lie” and ”The Beetle”, The Pyramids instrumental ”Mindnight Run”, The Marketts ”Collision Course” and what is credited as “the only enjoyable cut” from the comedy album Rod’s N’ Ratfink by Mr. Gasser & The Weirdos: “The Lonely Stocker” – which was strangely enough the weakest track on the Knights album. Also found are a Gary Usher vocal on the Wilson-Usher collaboration “Shut Down” which was released under the name The Road Runners.”

A re-up of this cool bootleg collection with enchanced sound quality on many trax by Mr.Eliminator himself. Don’t miss it !

HOT ROD CITY – Introducing The Quads, The Grand Prix, The Customs & The Challengers [1963/95]

Hot Rod City sc11025-front

 

“Recorded in 1963. [Originally released on Vault], the original LP version of HOT ROD CITY was performed by two basic groups of surf and hot-rod musicians operating under three names. The Grand Prix and the Quads were conceived by songwriter-producer Richard Delvy, and the Customs were conceived by songwriter-producer Gary Usher. This 1995 reissue adds eight additional songs and alternate takes, including two previously-unreleased tracks by Delvy’s main band, The Challengers. The members of the Challengers also formed the core of The Grand Prix and The Quads. This release includes the alternate take bonus tracks “Candy Apple Buggy”, “Goin’ 88”, “Nifty ’50”, “Hot Rod City”, “Competition Coupe”, and also a few tracks that weren’t included on the original album; “She Rides With Me”, “The Blonde In The 406” and “Little Queenie”.

Gary Usher and Richard Delvy, flush from their success with the top-ten album Shut Down (which they produced), was asked by Vault Records to try and duplicate that success on their label. Vault had already contracted surf-rock band The Challengers to play on the tracks, but never having written car tunes before, Usher was brought in to lend an authentic touch.

Given three fictional group names to work with – The Customs, The Quads, The Grand Prix, and the aforementioned backing group, The Challengers, Usher also brought in friends Dick Burns (The Hondells), Paul Johnson, Bobby Hart, Paul Johnson, Dennis McCarthy and others to quickly shape an album of hot rod tunes in order to strike while the iron was hot. The resulting album, Hot Rod City, while no masterpiece, captures the raw energy of the drag-racing circuit, and includes several songs of interest to Beach Boys fans. Included are the previous Usher compositions “RPM”, a cover of Chuck Berry’s “Maybelline,” and three Beach Boys songs, “Little Deuce Coupe,” “Shut Down,” and “409.”

GREETINGS FROM OHIO [Rare 70’s Garage/Hard Rock]

Greetings From Ohio (1)

 

“Long lost, meticulously-sought out jewels of hard rock and heavy psych/prog from the ’60s and ’70s glory days.
The first release in the Archives of Acid is a fourteen-track collection of the best, rarest singles from Ohio’s rich history of rock, spanning 1970 to 1977. It traverses grungy hard rock with Big Blue and Travis, epic rock with Myth Band and proto-punk with Erving Forbush and Dry Ice.
Also along for the ride is some heavy funk (Cincinnati Joe) and Southern rock from Zachariah. And that’s not all, give it a spin to see what other delights are in store…” [Archives of Acid]

Yep! Another collection of 70’s hard rock/proto-punk rarities in style of Bonehead Crunchers-Freaks comps you alredy dig here on Surfadelic. This stuff I dug from Archives of Acid bandcamp and made some sound cleaning/fixing, so you can get it in the best possible shape. Well Ohio… here we go, Dig!!!
