You never really know just how appropriate the nickname "King of the Surf Guitar" is until you see Dick Dale play live. The power of Dick's technique is the sound he invented, the harder edge style of playing surf music that others imitated but never quite duplicated. No other player and no other group from that era can claim that kind of pioneering style and showmanship.

Six decades into his career, Dick Dale the king of the surf guitar, continues to dazzle. This is a rare recording, one to treasure as Dale’s performance on this evening was perfect. Recorded in 1996, the spirits of Surf music past and present were alive and well in Southern California, playing all his signature songs including a cranked up version of Miserlou. An essential collection of guitar wizardry, from the undisputed king of the surf guitar.
