The Birth of Surf
The Birth of Surf

Surf music can be called the American's original music style, since it was invented here in US in the late 1950s. Its fast dance tempo with full electric guitar power made it the popular sound of the early 1960s, especially with the instrumental music.

Ace's 'The Birth of Surf' tells the story of surf development through series of instrumental surf songs - from the well-known hits to the lesser known ones. There are big hits such as Duane Eddy & the Rebels' "Ramrod", the Fireballs' "Bulldog", and the Surfaris's "Wipe Out". The are some one-hit wonders such as the Chantays' "Pipeline", the Astronauts' "Baja", and the Pyramids' "Penetration". There also have some rare recordings including the Gamblers' "Moon Dawg", Dick Dale & the Del-Tones' "Miserlou", and Aki Long & the Nobles' "Earthquake". Although there are already many surf collections in the market, but this 26-song collection is the perfect single-disc guide to the instrumental surf music that will satisfy most fans and curious listeners.
