Almost two years ago, we wrote about the compilation Birth of Surf from Ace Records. Now volume 2 is here, and once again we're treated to quite a few first-time-on-cd tracks. “The Birth Of Surf Volume 2” follows the pattern of Vol 1 in taking a slice through the timeline of rock instrumental history leading up to and on through the first surf era. Influential artists such as the Ventures, Wailers and Revels are joined by early examples of the sounds that became surf such as the Scarlets’ ‘Stampede’, the Rockin’ Rebels’ ‘Wild Weekend’ and the Busters on ‘Bust Out’. It’s an exciting listen, an attractive purchase for the casual buyer, and is sure to be an essential acquisition for collectors.
