Surfin’ Safari

1963 was the year that surfing broke through and became the hottest new thing for teenagers on the coasts of the United States and although it wasn’t always that safe, it often meant fun! The surfmusic had a vocal and an instrumental form and the guitars (mostly Fenders) were exceptional in the high notes and sounded wild and exotic. Many surf-albums came out in that year and The Beach Boys became an international succes-story. Their 1962 hit Surfin’ Safari was highly influenced by Chuck Berry and an instant succes. But the real king of the surf guitar was Dick Dale, a California born guitarist who improvised with reverb and delay to improve his specific staccato-style of playing. In march 2019 this true legend and health freak (he never smoked or drank alcohol) went right into the surf heavens, 82 years old.

In the 1950’s surf was already popular by jazzbo’s and beatniks, but that remains as cult. Surf music was mainly a rockmusic style and mostly from California. So we start here with a couple of jazz albums and explore the wonderful world of surf music with a selection of the many colorful albums on labels like Del-Fi and Capitol and reissues on Sundazed and Dionysus Records.
