|This is a one-track mp3 release that's simply amazing... The Chantays were not only about as important as surfbands get, and this song utterly definitional, but this nineties version is pure art and energy. This is essential listening!|

Track by Track Review
This 1995 recording is incredibly close to the original in so many ways. The arrangement is exact, the tone and performance are very close, and the effect is what seems at first glance to be a remastered enriched version. It's also different from the updated version of the 2007 comp 100 Years Of Surfing. I must say, that among the many re-recordings of their original hits bands have made, this is about the most credible reproduction I've ever heard. It's larger and tougher, and simply superb! I love this!
