The Endless Summer II
The Story
"The Endless Summer II" is a great surfer album (even if it varies significantly from any semblance to traditional 'surf' music), full of great rock and hard rock instrumental guitar work by Gary Hoey, and a track with surf guitar king Dick Dale, "Shake & Stomp (Part II)". Hoey has filled the CD with tunes of differing feels, from the ska treatment of "Theme From Endless Summer" to the funky blues of "Sweet Water" to the '70s guitar sound of "Pipe". "The Endless Summer II" also features another excellent Hoey cover tune, "Low Rider". The entire CD was recorded in 12 days, start to finish!
