Rock Instrumental Classics, Vol. 5: Surf

Rhino closes its five-volume rock instrumentals series with an 18-track outing devoted to surf guitar. This fast-paced, prickly, and frequently exciting form may not be among the most diversified structurally, but if does offer some surging playing from its practitioners. They range from founding father Dick Dale to its most popular bands, the Surfaris, Belairs, Ventures, and Chantays. While not particularly a hardcore surf collection, this disc certainly outlines its virtues, and the tunes were long enough to display guitar proficiency, but short enough to prevent self-indulgence and repetition.

If you're just going to have one various artists surf compilation, this one is as good as you'll find. It includes some songs you may have elsewhere, but also included are several must have cuts that are only found on surf music albums - Mr. Moto, Bustin' Surfboards, Surf Rider and the hauntingly beautiful Lonely Surfer. Rhino Records does it's usual good job on this reissue.
