One of my favorite compilations.

RenaissanceMan

This is easily one of my favorite compilations ever and one of the best records I've bought in the last year. Dale SHREDS and will leave you with your mouth hanging open. Any aspiring guitarist needs this. It is a lesson from a master. Any wanna-be guitarist needs to hear this and then hang up their guitar to save us all from future crappy guitar playing.

Nice Overview

BigD-Bluez

A nice career overview for any who need an introduction to or handy 1 album comp of the King of the Surf Guitar. Highlights - Miserlou (that Pulp Fiction intro song), Nitro (a blazing track from a more recent album), and Pipeline recorded with Stevie Ray Vaughan.

They Say All Music Guide

It’s hard to overestimate the talent and influence of Dick Dale. With the possible exception of Les Paul, no modern guitar player has done so much behind the scenes to create the sound and gear of contemporary electric guitar, from helping to develop the Showman amp and outboard reverb gear to his playing itself, which incorporated Middle Eastern scales in the late ’50s and early ’60s when such things were unheard of on electric guitar — and he did all this by playing guitar left-handed, upside down and backwards, and at massive volume. This set balances nicely between his early classics like “Miserlou,” middle-period tracks like his version of Jimi Hendrix’s “Third Stone from the Sun,” and later sides like his guitar duet with Stevie Ray Vaughan on the surf classic “Pipeline,” making this release a nice introduction to a guitar legend. – Steve Leggett
