Track by Track Review
TV Surf (Instrumental)
"Wipe Out" is simply the definitive drummer's badge of courage. If he can do a decent "Wipe Out," he's hired. Simple, and written and recorded in just minutes, this is an international classic that has sold multimillions of copies, and still does every year worldwide.
This is the hit three verse version of the song, not the full five verse original. It's a classic bit of surf history that has been at the center of a firestorm from its birth, long wit the flip side "Wipe Out."
