Phil Dirt - Reverb Central - PO Box 1609, Felton, CA 95018-1609 USA
Collection: Legendary Hot Rod Hits Volume 1dotdot
Three volumes make up a better than average supermarket/as seen on TV collection. What makes it worth a mention is the inclusion of several of the more obscure/authentic surf/rod instros among the vocal mung. Liners are completely void of any info at all - printed on just one side. The box has no data either.
Picks: Dick Dale and his Del-tones - Mr. Eliminator

Track by Track Review


Dick Dale and his Del-tones - Mr. Eliminator dotdotdotdot
Not (Instrumental)

This version is from the Mr. Eliminator album. It's a bit of a contrast for Dick, big chords and whammy instead of double picked power house delivery, but a solid track nonetheless.

The Smithereens covered it in the eighties, which got MTV Europe's attention as they were getting ready to launch back in '89, and that caused them to contract with Dick Dale for a 10 second version for use as a logo.

The Shutdowns - Beach Buggy dotdotdot
Hot Rod (Instrumental)

Studio nonsense.
