Dick Dale and his Del-Tones: Surfers' Choice

$7.95

Coming from the greater Boston area, Richard Anthony Mansour (aka Dick Dale) was an unlikely choice to become the King of Surf Guitar, but he eventually did so here we present his debut album from 1962, Dick Dale and his Del-Tones: Surfers' Choice. 

During a six-month period that began July 1, 1961, Dale's performances at the Rendezvous Ballroom in Balboa Peninsula (Newport Beach) are credited with the creation of the surf music phenomenon.  Dale asked for and gained permission to use the 3,000 person capacity ballroom for surfer dances after overcrowding at a local ice cream parlor where he performed made him seek other venues. 

The Rendezvous ownership and the city of Newport Beach agreed to Dale's request on the condition that he prohibit alcohol sales and implement a dress code.  Dale's events at the ballrooms, called "stomps," quickly became legendary, and the events routinely sold out.  The recording established the conventions of surf music and brought the concept to middle America. 

The album was mostly recorded live at the Rendezvous with overdubs added in the studio.  The record was out of print for a long time, but was reissued on CD in 2006.  Features instant Dale classics such as Misirlou Twist, Let's Go Trippin', Surf Beat and Surfing Drums.

To be listened to loud and at the beach!!!
