Paying homage to the Ventures (as can be seen by the cover) and the Shadows here's Canada's Falcons. I love their laconic reverby style and what sounds like a 12 string guitar in the mix. There's a couple of bonus tracks as well including the sublime Shadowlands.
Thanks to Brandonio for sending me this album Link
Grumpy is sharing this fantastic Ventures album. I've got a lot of their stuff but this was a newy to me. One of the tunes sounds like reworked classic but reverbed up. As a commentator said in a forum I visited did the Ventures ever make a bad album? Definitely not I reckon. Recycled yep but so what. Go here for this goody.
Here is a legendary album featuring Aki Aleong who produced the album and didn't do anything else and the Nobles a pretty good surf group who were known for a couple of classics such as Earthquake and Hiawatha. Well worth listening to if you haven't got it already.
Here's an album containing 35 tracks of the best of session guitarist extraordinaire Al Casey.
Al Casey was one fine studio musician. He worked as rhythm guitarist on many of Duane Eddy's biggest hits. It was the big guitar style he developed that Duane adopted. He also worked with Jody Reynolds, whose guitar instros were similar to Eddy's. His work with Duane was via producer/writer Lee Hazelwood, who also contracted him for this, his first solo album. Al was almost totally unfamiliar with surf when he agreed to do this album. There are some rough spots that demonstrate that, and a few numbers that are really outside the envelope if you subtract the reverb on his guitar. Sundazed has captured a couple of alternate takes, probably nineties remixes from session multi-tracks [3 or 4 tracks at best]. If you get past the Blossoms aka the K-C-Ettes ghastly vocalizing and the blues numbers, there are some real gems here. This is also the first time in stereo from the master tapes. The Stacy CD is from vinyl, or at least it sure sounds like it. (Phil Dirt Reverb Central).
The one that started it all. Well started something anyway. An unholy hybrid of electronica and instrumental music from the fevered imagination of legendary surf legend Sandy Groper himself. After a day surfing the beaches of France with the fearless members of the Surf Club de France rumoured to be the children of former resistance fighters and imbibing too much Swan Bitter and Absinthe (they were the legal ones anyway) Sandy came up with this concoction.

Here is the legendary compilation from Sandgroper's Surfspot.
All these tracks have planet in the title and three even feature Planet X.
From the surfy bongo sound of Fifty Foot Combo fresh from the beaches of Planet Belgium we also have some nice electronica courtesy of Kraftwerk and Orbital and even some groovy sitar work from the legendary Ananda Shankar.
So sit back turn your volume level to 11 and your reverb level to 13 and enjoy the Bitches err I mean Beaches of Planet X.

This is a compilation of some of my favourite tracks by my favourite Aussie surf group and featured on my old web site. There's a selection of their early stuff and a couple of more recent tracks which are much more reverby and heavy. They are still going and a visit to their website is very worthwhile. They've got 2 or 3 cds out which can be ordered from their website and its top drawer stuff.
Here is the Hombres almost impossible to get single LP Let It All Hang Out. The title track of course is a great one hit wonder from 1967 featured in a few films the latest being Elizabethtown.
Some good tracks including a version of Gloria with 8 Miles High suddenly appearing half way through, you can also see where they got the chord progression for Let It All Hang Out. So remember, water drippin' up the spout but I don't care let it all hang out
