"Surf Age Nuggets" is a four-disc box set featuring the unsung heroes of the surf instrumental genre, "Surf Age Nuggets" traces the attitude of surf instrumental music from 1959 through it's demise in 1966. From long boards and short hair to short boards and long hair, the collection celebrates the lesser-known purveyors of the sound. All musical tracks are instrumentals and many are indeed obscure and they're supplemented by vintage station IDs and some unexpected audio treats from that era. This compilation accurately reflects the first time that music, sport and teenage lifestyle came together and confirms the attitude that surfing has always been a "rebel sport", one that continues to grow every year. Surf music was perfect for everything with it's twangy mixture of basic, pure-yet-raw '50s rock & roll, minus the teen-idol baggage. Suddenly, surfing and surf music were front and center, featured in comic books, advertising, movies and television series such as Batman, Mr. Ed and The Flintstones. The sound became pervasive and songs like Link Wray's "Jack the Ripper", performed here by the Valiants, perfectly capture it's essence. The set contains four discs, a complete track-by-track annotation by surf experts Alan Taylor and Dave Burke from Pipeline magazine, plus pop culture surf memorabilia and vintage commercials.
