This 20-track collection cherry-picks the best tracks from their various Japanese albums, with Fournier's originals counting for seven of the selections and spirited covers of "Beyond," "Theme From The Man From U.N.C.L.E.," "Thunderball" and "Get Smart" also spicing up the mix. As surf-instrumental-type music goes, this is great, ultra-rare stuff, and well worth the listen.
