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.

Cian Nugent - 15 September 2012, Tilburg, Netherlands

Bio from his bandcamp page:
Cian Nugent is a guitar player and composer from Dublin, Ireland who combines personal passions, such as suburban/coastal blues, traditional musics, late 1960s & '70s singer-songwriters, jazz ambitions, 20th century composition and the Takoma school into a deeply personal style. His music boasts an orchestrated and fully instrumented sound that is playful and eerie at the same time.
