Track by Track Review


Surfin' Santa dotdotdot
Yule Surf (Vocal)

Gary Paxton made up a bunch of artists in the studio. His concoction Lord Douglas Byron delivers the goods with a plaintiff Hollywood Argyles vocal style in "Surfin' Santa." Oh, how the record biz worked back then...

Surfer's Christmas List dotdotdot
Yule Surf (Vocal)

The Surfaris beg for goodies in "A Surfer's Christmas List" with Ron Wilson's voice ever so flat and cool. His impish style allows this silly number to be believed. The question is, will there be room under the tree for the 9'6' Dewey Webber and the O'Neill wet suit?
