Well, what needs to be said about this? The King of the Surf Guitar at his finest. This covers 1959 to 1996 and hits all the high points. All the tunes are here, even some rare stuff. And, as usual, Rhino’s packaging is exquisite. Great liner notes, plus track-by-track notes. If you are a fan of surf guitar, you must have this. Dick never disappoints. And it seems Rhino never does, either.
