That's right, you can finally pick up Checkered Flag, Mr. Eliminator, and Summer Surf on CD for the first time ever.

For a Few Guitars More on NPR

Submitted by Brian on February 22, 2007.
Surf Scene News
The NPR program Weekend America is going to run a segment on the outstanding For a Few Guitars More tribute to Ennio Morricone that was released in 2003. They have interviewed Moon Dawg, Ferenc Dobronyi, and Spanky Twangler, so it should be a very interesting segment.

The show airs at different times in different cities, usually on Saturday afternoon. The stations and times are listed here. Podcasts of the show are available after 3pm Saturday also, check here.

Hopefully this will renew some interest in this outstanding CD. Ferenc is working on getting another pressing going as well. Congratulations guys!

Unlimited Productions Releases Surfin' In The Midwest, Vol. 4

Unlimited Productions Releases Surfin' In The Midwest, Vol. 4
Phil Dirt

Unlimited Productions has just released the long-awaited fourth volume in their amazing Surfin' In The Midwest series. I had the pleasure of assisting on this one, and I'm very pleased with the outcome. Extensive liner notes as always, lots of pictures of bands, and more. This one is very clean as a result of extensive restoration of the source material. It's on 12 inch vinyl.

Those of you who have earlier volumes of this series know what it means to get another volume out. Volume one came across my radar one rainy afternoon at a little refuge in San Jose called Dedicated Record Collector. There is was, sitting quietly in the "new" bin. The artwork alone was worth the dinero, but a quick glance at the track listing and I knew I had to have it. Surfin' In The Midwest (Land Of The Ho-Dads) raised the bar for comps of dusty old singles.

The series has included so many magical surf obscuros that it's hard to under-value. Just look at the list of tracks before this volume.
