We featured a YouTube clip featuring The Barracudas earlier. If they ever were a proper surf band or not may be open for debate. There is however no question about that when it comes to the bands on the great 'Birth of Surf' cd.
'Birth of Surf' includes awesome tunes by significant guitar heroes like Duane Eddy, Link Wray, the Ventures and the Fireballs, some early surf from Californian group the Tornadoes, the paramount and timeless blast of Dick Dale's 'Miserlou', the classics 'Pipeline', 'Wipe Out', 'Baja'. This cd also includes the cream of the self-released recordings from the myriad of young surf groups that sprung up in the early 60s. Some of the goodies on here appear for the first time on cd!
