Jon & The Nightriders' Surf Beat '80 released on CD


Good news!!!

The seminal surf instro album from 1980, Jon & The Nightriders' "Surf Beat '80" was released on CD for the first time on 7 June!! All of the tracks have been digitally remixed and remastered. There are SIX bonus tracks included, several appearing for the first time. I expect the CD will be available on Amazon and CDBaby, as well as the following websites:

I'll also have copies available at the Surfer Joe Festival and all of the upcoming John Blair Band tour dates in Italy later in June (http://www.surferjoemusic.com/johnblair/).

I'm so happy to finally have this on CD along with the bonus tracks. This is true history! This album started the 2nd wave of surf music and convinced Dick Dale to play surf music again! The Ventures began playing live in the US again soon afterwards.
