Surfing on vinyl

As well as collecting boards I'm also a bit partial to old lps and here's a few surf related ones. Above and below, Beach boys and the Ventures from the roots of the surfing boom 1963.


Smooth and classy West coast jazzing from Bud Shank for Bruce Brown's barefoot adventure.


Bruce Brown again from the late 60s on this rare motorbike film including Steve Mcqueen and with endless summer style commentary , take a look www.youtube.com/watch?v=pyjtpB6AFuI . Its got a couple of good crossover funk tracks like sunday drivin' - www.youtube.com/watch?v=5hVF4u01kKs .



Blues from Otis Spann from 69.
