Dick Dale And His Del-Tones Checkered Flag On 180g Vinyl LP

In the half-century since he began his reign as King of the Surf Guitar, Dick Dale has remained one of rock's most innovative and influential axemen. A bold pioneer in the use of speed, volume and sonic texture, the charismatic Dale invented surf music, and in the process permanently altered the role of the electric guitar in rock 'n' roll.

Although he began releasing singles on his own Deltone label in the late '50s, Dale made much of his most enduring music during his '60s stint with Capitol Records. Now, Sundazed is making Dick Dale's reverb-soaked, genius LPs available once again, the way they were meant to be heard, on vinyl. Sundazed vinyl restoration of the vintage Dale catalog features his landmark studio albums Surfer's Choice, King of the Surf Guitar, Checkered Flag, Mr. Eliminator and Summer Surf, originally released between 1962 and 1964. All of those albums have been mastered from the original analog tapes, and are packaged with their complete original cover art.  

In late 1963, California's King of the Surf Guitar left the shore for the strip and created one of the classic albums of the hot-rod music genre. Dick Dale's Checkered Flag is heavy with white-hot Dale instrumentals ("Night Rider," "Ho-Dad Machine") and vocal car tunes from the pens of pop's songwriters (Gary Usher, Gary Paxton, Carol Connors). Helping Dale stir up the nitro fuel are L.A. session stars Plas Johnson, Steve Douglas, Hal Blaine and Earl Palmer.
