Dave and Matthew, thanks for your recommendations of Surf-Age Nuggets!  I have been enjoying Disc 1 throughout the past week.

Glad you like it! There are a lot of surf music compilations out there but it's hard to go wrong with this one.

This Rhino box was pretty good, although I haven't listened to it in a long time.

I remember this one well.  It was too rich for my blood.  The store kept it in a locked glass case so that it wouldn't be stolen!  Rhino was great for that sort of thing.

I can recommend Brian Wilson's No Pier Pressure, but the music has nothing to do with the beach.

This is an interesting oddity. Obviously looks like a vintage 60s surf album, but is actually this:
"The band was composed of the members of The Heartbreakers, Tom Petty's backup band. During a short break from their work with Petty they recorded one album, Surf-N-Burn, which had the theme song "Goldfinger" from the James Bond film of the same name. Released by Epitaph Records, the album's liner notes include a faux history of The Blue Stingrays as if they were a legendary instrumental band founded in the late 1950s whose sole album was lost for decades due to the band members desire for anonymity. It was a reunion of sorts, with founding bassist Ron Blair playing with Heartbreakers members for the first time in 15 years, and Randall Marsh drumming, who was in a previous incarnation of the Heartbreakers called Mudcrutch.

Band members: Mike Campbell, Ron Blair, Benmont Tench and Randall Marshall"

Look Ma, no amplifiers or power cords!

:D But that's typical of playbacks. And, by the way, I like surf music very much.

At the first moment I thought you meant Johnny Thunders' Heartbreakers.
