5-0 out of 5 stars Son of the Beach
If this CD doesn't get you excited about surf music, you are asleep. These are some of the guys that everybody else copied. You know how Dr. Demento always comes out with those great tunes from the past? Not him here, but this production is in the same vein(kinda like Pulp Fiction?). So much fun and energy. Get in your car, roll down the windows, turn it up and head for the water, any water, or order a whiskey and water. Hell, buy it just for the cover alone. ... Read more

California may be the largest state in the Union, but it's only one state nuzzling one ocean, with only so many people living near the coastline, and a small minority of them have attempted to navigate waves on a board, much less possess the fetching physique to do so in public. Obviously, then, surf music isn't for surfers. If it were, Rhino would put out a greatest-hits EP instead of a four-disc box set. Cowabunga! is all the permanent-wave stuff most people will ever need. The discs are arranged in a curious manner: disc 1, "Ground Swells," chronicles the years from 1960 to 1963; disc 2 features nothing but recordings from '63; the third CD runs from '63 to '67; and the coda captures the postpunk renaissance that began in '77. Curious, isn't it, that there was so little going on in surf between '67 and '77? Maybe Jimi Hendrix almost killed it when he promised (in 1967!), "You'll never hear surf music again" on "Third Stone from the Sun." But Hendrix is dead, and Dick Dale lives! So, too, do the Revels, the Beach Boys, the Surfaris, Annette Funicello, the Ventures, and dozens of others. At least they do in this anthology. By the way, "cowabunga" is "a yell of excitement by a surfer." You learn that from the helpful glossary included in the excellent liner notes by John Blair, leader of Jon & the Nightriders.As to the lasting appeal of surf music, perhaps it has something to do with the fact that it's mostly instrumental. People make jokes about dumb California blonds, but the ones who made most of the classic surf sides knew one thing: it's wise at times to keep your mouth shut and play! --Steven Stolder ...

4-0 out of 5 stars The Surf Instros Rock! But....
This is definitely a good set for anyone who's looking for a surf rock anthology that covers ALL genres of surf-music. Unfortunately this is the very element that gives this set a Huge FLAW. The history of surf-music (its birth, death & revival) is perhaps too well portrayed here. Don't get me wrong! This is a fun set that for the most part rocks! and if you're into surf instros, there are plenty of guitar groups covered here. BUT, what's up with the inclusion of vocal groups like The Beach Boys, Annette Funicello & Jan and Dean? as if these bubble gum groups have anything to do with what's truly appealing about surf-rock. The inclusion of these ooh-waahh groups (a bit more than I care to listen to on the 2nd & 3rd discs) gives this set a cornball esthetic that's a perfect example of the stigma that labeled surf bands and why they just simply faded away in the late sixties. We end up with too much filler material (Including actual wave sounds!) and a pricey price-tag for a 4 disc comp that could've been a GREAT 3 disc comp. Overall - The Surf Instros Rock!

5-0 out of 5 stars Expensive, but the only one available
This box is worth the money one has to pay since its OOP. Also check out ebay since it always has some auctions on this item.

However, since it is hard to find, try to seek a copy. The box itself is nice, as well as the booklet. The music is fantastic and otherwise hard to find!

5-0 out of 5 stars If you can find it, GET IT!
Simply the best collection of surf tune's available!
Almost as good as that sacred milk crate full of surf LP's...except on CD. Almost as good as "Learn Guitar with the Ventures". Totally awesome like seeing Dick Dale tearing it up live. It's like watching the Tornadoes and the Belairs and the Chantays live and all on the same bill. Dude!...why are you reading this? Go out there...find it...buy it...like, now, dude.

5-0 out of 5 stars COWABUNGA THE SURF BOXED SET
Another one bites the sand!!! I can't believe that this set
ever went out of print!!! Now look what you have to pay for it!!!
I thought you only had to worry about sharks in the water but now
I see that they have slithered onto the land as well!!! The only
thing worse is sand in the bathing suit...

5-0 out of 5 stars Seek it out, pay top dollar, befriend the Mob...just FIND IT
This set, as I have noticed after a year of searching, is a wee bit hard to find. However, I would like to plead that anyone who come across this review purchase the set at any cost (and that anyone from Rhino who comes across this review give a thought to reissuing it).

I am not a fanatic about surf music; I consider myself an enthusiastic casual listener. Older surf music is adorable, bubbly, and bouncy; newer surf music tends to sound darker and a little more ironic. This box set provides a stellar sampling of both worlds. The first two discs are full of early gems; the second disc covers the decline of surf music in the late sixties, and the final disc gives a tantalizing peek into modern surf-revival music.

The advantages of a set like this are numerous. First, and foremost to me, entire albums by a single surf band can start to sound repetitive and the songs run together after a while. With this box set, you have CDs that cover the same period but mix up tracks from all sorts of different bands that were all making music at the same time. This way you get the positive sameness of the basic surf sounds without the negative sameness of a single band starting to sound repetitive. Secondly, you can really see the evolution of surf through the chronological song arrangement. The early songs are very simple musically, and don't really vary too much. By the last disc you have music that borrows from surf (such as the Surf Punks) alongside genuine revivalists. My final lump of praise for this set is the quirkiness of some of the song choices. The aforementioned Surf Punks, for example, mix 70's punk with surf conventions. Modern surf bands add a jazzier or loungier edge to their music. And finally, I would like to speak up in praise of the inclusion of some vocal tracks on the set. Where would surf be without the Beach Boys? Sure, they may have commercialized the genre and stolen the spotlight, but they are a vital part of the surf scene and its evolution. I would even venture to say that they have helped the genre stay afloat through some of the dark and ironic periods in recent culture. The few vocal tracks which are included blend well and do not follow each other, so that you are given plenty of time in between them to get introspective on the instrumental tracks.

My only complaints: the wave sounds at the end of some of the CDs, and the fact that the "Ebb Tide" CD (#3) drags a bit. I realize the decline of surf needs documentation as well, but I could have done without some of the selections on that disc.

Overall, this is all the surf music a casual fan will ever need. As it becomes harder and harder to find, I will simply repeat my advice to purchase any copy you may find, at any price. Trade your car, your house, your firstborn...these things are overrated. A good surf collection is a treasure forever. ... Read more

Album Description

Somewhere in Satan's kingdom, drink in hand, Bon Scott is smiling, and with the advent of this release, the horned king's bidding is done at last. Intended as a high-voltage tribute to the finest exemplars of all things bad-assed, sweat-drenched, and stone cold deafening that rock has yet seen, Hell Ain't A Bad Place To Be assembles a true round table of dark knights in the sonic crusade against anemic, diluted, spineless music. Unlike most largely pointless and misguided corporate compilations thrown together by record execs doing thick rails of coke while on their cell phones, this is the real thing, the genuine article. No big hair, no sissified alterna-crap, no rap-metal crossover garbage, and definitely no korn; just a baker's dozen bands who have understood the AC/DC way of life, and method of rock since the word go.These are the true heirs to the throne. And with jaw-dropping, eye-popping artwork by renowned satanic high priest of illustration, Coop, and wicked-ass tattoo ink-slinger Dave Waugh, Hell Ain't A Bad Place To Be visually drips with sex, hard rock, and more sex. But don't buy it just for the large-breasted demon chicks on the cover alone.....this fucker rocks like hell, a real kick in the teeth for a music industry long gone sour from top to bottom. For those about to rock...buy this album. ... Read more

This is an album not to miss; even if you are unfamiliar with any of the bands on this tribute, if you like AC/DC you will appreciate this. This has got to be one of my favorite tribute albums i own; with bands like The Dwarves, Zeke, Upper Crust, REO Speedealer, Supersuckers, & Ironboss how could you not like it? An A+ in all-time kick-a*s rock'n'roll tributes. An A+ in cover art as well, done by Coop. Check out Reptilian Records other releases as well, or go check out the store down in Baltimore, Maryland. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars 50's Hits: Great Records of the Decade
Finally! After being ripped off by sound-alike (I use the term sarcastically) artists and crummy re-recordings, I found a label I can trust! This album is released by Curb Records, and the songs are the genuine article. Apparently Mike Curb, of "Burning Bridges" fame, believes in giving the customer the real thing.

All of the songs on this cd were big hits in the 50's, and one of the few that has the original "Poor Little Fool" and "Susie Darlin".The variety of selections is also unique, ranging from Pat Boone's ballad "Love Letters in the Sand", to the somewhat unusual (compared to the other 12) "Black Denim Trousers", and the timeless "Blueberry Hill".

There are really no bad tracks in this baker's dozen.Whether you are just getting into the sounds of the 50's or just filling gaps in your collection, this album is worth it!

4-0 out of 5 stars Worthy Collection of Assorted Hits
Though many of the songs included are available on better collections, this CD boasts original hits by the original artists, including the elusive hit single by Ricky Nelson, "Poor Little Fool."Any CD that includes "Black Denim Trousers" by the Cheers and "Susie Darlin'" by Robin Luke is worth the price. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars Too Much "Good Stuff"
Nice hodgepodge of '80s rock (U2, Winwood), pop (Frankie Goes to Hollywood) and reggae (Bob Marley, mixed up with a s---load of disco-fied drivel.

Highlights: "All Right Now" by Free, "Israelites" by Desmond Dekker, "Paper Sun" by Traffic, "Harder They Come" by Jimmy Cliff and Fairport Convention's Cajun take on Dylan's "If You Gotta Go, Go Now."

Maybe this should have been a single disc set.

5-0 out of 5 stars Let there be drums!
This series is designed to spotlight drumming, as it relates to rock and roll.This volume spotlights the 1950s.Max Weinberg selected some of his favorite songs with his favorite drummers.Unfortunately, he wasn't able to get every song he wanted to use.The most obvious ommision is Elvis Presley's drummer D.J. Fontana."Hound Dog" really should be here, but what can you do?Anyway, the rest of the songs are all great.Of course, a lot of them have great drum solos, but there are a few of them that have very subtle drumming which you really wouldn't take much notice of the drumming.But Max Weinberg knows more about drumming than the rest of us, so pay attention to the drumming in these songs.Even if you don't care about drumming, this is still a great album of 1950s rock and roll.Highly recommended.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Series!! Why Out Of Print??
Max is bigger now than ever, and that's not even counting the new reunion tour with Springsteen and the E St. Band.This compilation of three discs, together with the accompanying (also out of print) book "The Big Beat", must have been a labor of love for Max.But it's also an ESSENTIAL part of the music collection of anyone who loves great drumming!Which has been kind of important in rock & roll!!So why did the record company drop this series from its current catalogue?The Big Five record companies are worse than the five mob families that once ruled New York City!

5-0 out of 5 stars Drums Galore
Super selections highlight this overview of great 50's drummers and their best-known beats.What places this CD in a higher category than other music appreciation types is the presence of Max Weinberg's endearing and insightful liner notes, which discuss each of the 18 tracks with reverence and adulation. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Worth every penny
This is an outstanding rockabilly collection covering the Dot record label. The inclusion of both takes of the Phantom's "Love Me" makes this disc worth buying alone. But there are others that make this collection irresistable--Gene Brown's "Big Door," Ray Sharpe's "Oh My Baby's Gone," and the series defining song, "Let's Flat Get It" by Danny Wolfe.

The rockabilly varies from the most absolute frantic, wild "Love Me" to boogie woogie "Carry On" by Jimmy Newman to the Texas blues style of Ray Sharpe. Pop/rockabilly is also covered on numerous tracks (Sanford Clark & Nikki Sullivan of the Crickets) and there is one disappointing country track by Jim Ringo.

As with any Bear Family release, the booklet is packed with detailed liner notes and pictures. The tracks are taken directly from the masters, thereby allowing a bigger and clearer sound.

As a Cramps fan, I was drawn in by the originals of "Love Me" and "Strange Love" (Keith Courvale). I have about 7-8 cd's from this series, and this disc is one of my favorties. Due to the pricing of Bear Family cd's, I recommend this to rockabilly enthusiasts, but casual fans might check out other collections like Get Hot Or Go Home, which is usually a bit cheaper. Or, of course, a best-of Sun rockabilly collection.

It's a shame Amazon doesn't provide a listening preview. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Extremely enjoyable album.
A good insight into the beginnings of rockabilly, and a somewhat-decent record of the current trends in this awesome field. I think this album should have included a song by the Blasters and one by the Cramps (the dark side of rockabilly), but overall, this compilation is just so much fun to listen to! I love to croon along with the songs, and I am unable to stop myself from dancing around. I give the first album 5 stars, the second, 4.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fine Collection of Early Rock & Roll
Going for a more hillbilly as opposed to R&B influence on rock, this CD effectively captures some of the best rock and roll of the early days. A few of the tracks can be gotten elsewhere on better CDs ("Oh Boy!" and "Blue Suede Shoes" in particular are on dozens of more comprehensive collections), but most of the tracks are "missing in action" treasures that even the most rabid rock and roll fans may never have heard. All original versions with good liner notes. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars A little too similar to the original.
I'm surprised that there is only one tribute to "Dark Side of theMoon" out there ... but this is it.When I first opened it up andpopped it in my CD player I was disappointed.Most of the tracks are very,very similar to Pink Floyd's classics.I had been hoping for somealterations on the themes.Other than "Money" (which has someneat electonic effects added) it sounds as if the band are doing everythingthey can to imitate the original.Also, they cut some of the lyrics out of"Brain Damage" for whatever reason.It would have been nice tohear some different instruments used, maybe even some female vocalists fora different feel.After listening to it a few times, however, it began togrow on me (especially "Time"), so I decided to go with a ratingof 3 stars. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars What's good on this album is fantastic and indispensable.
The tunes that to me justify the purchase of this cd are:

1.) The Pentagons:It's Spring Again Happy and rocking, this is a real special sounding record, it's hard to explain, I would say it's the ultimate springtime record (of which there's not alot!), it really has a vibe, great melody, performance, arrangement and, as most of the songs on this cd, an incredible deep groove provided by Earl Palmer.
2.) Rene Hall's Orchestra Featuring Willie Joe and his Unitar: Twitchy -Simply, one of the greatest rock'n'roll instrumentals of all time, super intense and hypnotic, dirty, it'll make your eyes bug out.
3.) Bob Landers with Willie Joe and his Unitar-Cherokee Dance...go listen to the sample of this song....hypnotic, the "Unitar" has a real down and dirty sound, it's a stabbing kind of sound,and just listen to that gravelly voice of Bob landers!!Great groove and back-ups, listen to the whole sample, it takes you up till the beginning of the "Unitar" solo which you can hear just as it fades.By the way, the "Unitar" is also the featured instrument on the song "Twitchy" I just described(#2)
4.) The Titans version of Don't You Just Know It, quintessential New Orleans record and if you don't already own it, you should. Every bit as good as Huey "Piano" Smith's version, I like both.
5.) The Casualairs- Satisfied....a totally different kind of song!They were a white band from New York, sounds like early 60's, has a real unusual chord progression on the turnaround of the chorus.....unusual and a little unsettling!
Also great is Jerry Byrne's "Light's Out" (written by Mac Rebbenak aka Dr. John) which is really fast and rockingJustine is also pretty rocking and intense and Larry Williams' "She Said Yeah" also appears.
Other than that, there's not much on here that I come back to and some songs I just don't like.But the songs I just listed above, I would crawl through something unpleasant to get, unquestionably, they are real gems.
On top of everything else, this has one of my favorite covers of all time, so with the cover and the 8 must-have songs, I'd say that's pretty good.I give it 4 stars for that, though you might want to subtract a star if you think that only 8 worthy tracks on a 25-song album isn't worth it. Hope this helps.("Sack" is all right, also, a novelty song, isn't "Sack" another word for alcohol?)

5-0 out of 5 stars great obscure early rockers
This is a collection of late-50s rock'n'roll, mostly by relatively obscuremusicians, who scored at-best regional hits with this material. (The mainexception is Larry Williams, who had a few top ten hits in his day, and whois represented on this CD by a a single track, "She Said Yeah",that would later be covered by the Rolling Stones.) The material here isgreat. These are mostly west coast bands, playing with the same manicenergy that their rockabilly contemporaries showed. ... Read more
