CD 10009 Comments: Johnny & the Hurricanes were OK, but I don't think they played surf music. There will always be borderline cases in deciding who is "in" and who is "not in" a musical genre, but I think it's generally accepted that to be considered surf music a recording needs at least one of the following: (1) reference to surfing or beaches in the title (or lyrics, for vocal surf music); (2) small combo (guitars-bass-drums, possibly sax or electric piano) with melody lead played on guitar; (3) reverb on lead or rhythm guitar; (4) recorded by a Southern California band that was part of the original surf culture 1960-65. I don't think J&H qualify on any of these scores. Instrumental surf is not co-extensive with instrumental rock and roll, but is a subcategory. (aek) Agreed..

We did a lot of James Brown and used Joe Houston's All Night Long as out theme song.

They covered a number of surf tunes, and some of their catalog was surf-influenced (in particular the "Surfing with the Ventures" album, and the reverbed "Walk Don't Run '64" single). For those reasons they merit inclusion. But much of the material included here was pre-surf, and much was later clearly non-surf. 01) Walk-Don't Run 07) Lolita Ya Ya 02) Hawaii Five-O 08) Lullaby of the Leaves 03) Perfidia 09) Diamond Head 04) Ram-Bunk-Shush 10) Theme from "A Summer Place" 05) Slaughter on Tenth Avenue 11) Theme from "The Wild Angels" 06) Blue Moo Ventures The Ventures Play Telstar - The Lonely Bull And Others / The Ventures In Space Dolton 0777-7-80239-2 01) Telstar 13) Out of Limits 02) The Lonely Bull 14) He Never Came Back 03) Mexico 15) Moon Child 04) Calcutta 16) Fear 05) Apache 17) Exploration in Terror 06) Never On Sunday 18) War of the Satellites 07) Tequila 19) The Bat 08) Green Onions 20) Penetration 09) Percolator 21) Love Goddess of Venus 10) Red River Rock 22) Solar Race 11) Let There Be Drums 23) The Fourth Dimension 12) Last Night 24) The Twilight Zone Ventures Walk-Don't Run - The Best of the Ventues EMI CDP-7-93451-2 01) Walk-Don't Run 16) Fugitive 02) No Trespassing 17) Walk-Don't Run '64 03) Perfidia 18) Pedal Pusher 04) Ram-Bunk-Shush 19) Slaughter on Tenth Ave. 05) Lullaby of the Leaves 20) Diamond Head 06) Yellow Jacket 21) Action Plus 07) Driving Guitars (Ventures Twist) 22) Dick Tracy 08) Road Runner 23) Flights of Fantasy 09) Twisted 24) Underground Fire 10) Spudnik (Surf Rider) 25) Hawaii Five-O 11) Night Drive 26) Ventures Interview 12) The 2000 Pound Bee (pts 1&2) 27) Ventures Radio Spot 13) The Savage 28) Underground Fire Radio Spot 14) Moon Child 29) Hawaii Five-O Radio Spot 15) Journey to the Stars Revival/Retro Groups -------------------- Agent Orange Living in Darkness Posh Boy R2 71092 01* Bloodstains (orig) 09* Living in Darkness 02* Too Young to Die 10) Pipeline 03* Everything Turns Grey 11* Breakdown 04) Miserlou 12) Mr. Moto 05* The Last Goodbye 13* America 06* No Such Thing 14* Bored of You 07* A Cry for Help in 15* El Dorado a World Gone Mad 16* Interview 1981 08* Bloodstains Aqua Velvets The Aqua Velvets Heyday Hey-034 Riptide Records, P.O Box 31164, San Fransisco CA 94131-0164 01) Bravado 06) Night in Paamul 02) Spy in the House of Love 07) Gringo 03) Swampabilly Hop 08) Surf Boogie 04) Spanish Blue 09) Beauty and the Beach 05) Blue Rhumba 10) Tango De Milo The Goldentones Atmosphere (no record company or disc # listed/ distributed by K Records, Box 7154, Olympia, WA 98507) Comments: The group is a trio with a bare-bones sound (few overdubs).
