Rising - The Surf Coasters

Submitted by tired on June 25, 2016.
Reviews

The latest CD by the group is the fourteenth in my collection recorded in a period of 20 years. 10 tracks, playing time 28 minutes and 16 seconds.

From the first hearing I thought "Welcome to England", as the first two cuts sound very British like Shadows material.

Track 3 (Sand Dust) reminds me of the Atlantics (Australia), track 4 Tabitito Yo is a slow tune with a hit potential like "The Endless Summer" by The Sandals from 1964.

My favorite tune is Nr. 6 "Por Que" with some guitar licks imitating Dick Dale style from the sixties! Track 8 "Tug Of Wolves" is another fine example of the Surf Coasters fine playing of all instruments in an uptempo tune.

The other songs are very well played as well but i.m.o. nothing special.

When I was in Hollywood at the YMCA in March 1978 I watched on tv an interview with rock and roll hero Fats Domino. He was asked why he plays always his old hits. He replied "I am happy when I can make the audience happy and they do like the old tunes so I do play them for my audience to make them happy!"

The Surf Coasters have so much material done and so they can choose easily to make the audience happy (like I understand from the reviews about their gig at the SJSF 2016 in Livorno)!

Well done folks. Hope more to come!
