The Surfdusters - Save the Waves

Any regular reader of this blog will know that Ragtime Ralph is a staple here at the Delta-Slider.  Posting his fingerpickin' goodies for all to hear has been a pleasure for me.  Ralph loves sharing his music.  Ralph also has a very diverse taste in music and in his playing history.  Surf music for instance, is a part of his musical history.
So I thought I would post a little of it here.  This is a great collection, here's the blurb from CDBABY:

The Surfdusters, Canada's primo west coast surf band, presents their CD 'Save The Waves' on Fireball 008. What you get here is reverbed up Fender guitars, drivin' Farfisa organ and piano, rumblin' bass, crashin' drums with grindin' sax added to the mix on 27 rockin' instrumentals written by the band - including all 11 tunes featured in the world's #1 cartoon 'Spongebob Squarepants'. Liner notes give you the story behind these tunes from The Surfdusters 'Raincoast Rumble' and 'Surf After Dark' CDs; out of print vinyl, cassette and compilation CDs, and unreleased cuts.
During the 1990s and into the 21st century, Vancouver, B.C.'s The Surfdusters played the west coast of North America - including sharing the stage with legendary Dick Dale and The Ventures - and were the only Canadian band featured on Rhino's 'Surf Box' compilation with their signature 'Save The Waves' instro included on this CD.

Get a TWENTY SEVEN song collection from Amazon for only $8.99 on MP3
CDBABY has the CD for a good price, compared to Amazon, and you get all the liner notes mentioned above.

  1. I don't know if this blog still runs or not, but I absolutely love this album. I just learned about this band recently and have become entranced in their sound. I would love to know more, but there's so little info about them online now. I'm gonna keep searching though
