takeshi terauchi - surfing a


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!
