Decent comp from Del-Fi, this CD does a great job of dragging surf music into the modern era, preparing it for the 21st century. It also uses classic surf artists to show where its been, and modern artist that give a fesh and new look at were its goin'. Surf music is in good hands. Highlights include Bomboras, Satans Pilgrims, and the Cocktail Preachers track. Smokin' guitar on that track, equipped with bouncy whammy bar. Good all around introduction to the world of surf. Surfheads probably have most of the cuts on here, non surfheads can try lots of bands from all time periods to get a feel of the evolution of the music.
