Pipeline dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

If you escape the nostalgia trip of Papa Doo Run Run, you can enjoy this standard performance of the Chantays' "Pipeline." There's nothing special, but the band does lay it down with a dry reverence.

Wipe Out dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

This is a pretty tame rendition of the Surfaris' signature tune. The drums don't hold up to comparison with Ron Wilson's original, but then what version does?
