Re-inventing classic surf music for the modern era
When the modern SURF INSTRUMENTAL REVIVAL hit in 1980, the Packards, released their very first American album to come out of the new surf-instro scene!
That album was Pray For Surf, and this—its first release on CD—is long overdue. Perhaps even more important is the inclusion here of Beach City Bop—the fabled "lost" Packards’ album that was recorded in 1982 and never before released!
So here, for the first time, is the whole colorful story of the early Packards: a two-in-one CD that gets to the root of what modern surf-instrumental music is all about.
