Takeshi Terauchi & His Blue Jeans are true legens of J-surf, something like The Ventures of The Far East. Mr. Takeshi [also known as Terry] is a Japanese most prolific instrumental rock guitarist who recorded 1000s slabs [mostly for King Records] with The Blue Jeans, The Bunnys or solo. I’ve already posted some of his cool surfin’ stuff here , as on my old blog. Now, you gotta deal with ’63 Lp ”Surfing” [his first surf album on Toshiba Records], GREAT compilations ”Early Times 1964-65” and ”Nippon Guitars 1966-74]”. Lottsa cool covers of surf & rock classics, The Ventures, Astronauts, Dick Dale, The Chantays, The Surfaris… as well as fine original Eleki tunes. Let’s go Surfin’ shogun style!
Surfin’ shogun Eleki style! This is maybe, their first all instro LP. Japan traditional themes adapted in western surf rock mode, driven with Takeshi’s distinctive guitar treat. Imagine if The Ventures were born in Japan and wearkimonos. Let’s Go Eleki Surfin’!
Re-post of this great early 70’s all-instro surfin’ slab by famous Japanase guitar-slinger Takeshi Terauchi.
