re-recording

WVMMRH

whether it's a re-recording or not DOES matter to people like collectors or to people like me that want the original version and can hear the difference so easily./i'm not negating the fact that the remake isn't done well,but i'm an "original version" type of person. in 1966 i owned the LP that the song "wipe out" originally was released on (dot records btw) and hopefully emusic will someday have it in their collection.

" Great Album!"

Bobafunk

Wipe out is definitely a remake. Surfer Joe is a dead give away; However, While most of the artist's that rerecord their classic songs sound tired, old, and out of touch, The Sufari's seem to retain the original spirit of the recordings they made over 40 years ago.

Awesome riffs

Argon

Who cares if it's a remake if it sounds this good? This is the one album that has never left my ipod since I downloaded it 2 years ago. The drumming always gets me moving and the guitar work is timeless. Where do you think all the indie pop bands like The Feelies, Beat Happening, Jesus & Mary Chain, and the Raveonettes etc. got their sound? No disrespect to Dick Dale, the Ventures and the rest of 'em but in my book, the Surfaris were and are the kings of surf guitar.

They Say All Music Guide

“Wipe Out” is probably the definitive surf rock instrumental. Comparable with such classics of the period such as Dick Dale’s “Let’s Go Trippin’,” the Champs’ ” Tequila,” and Bill Doggett’s “Honkey Tonk,” the track leads you right into the period and, as an added plus, defies you not to dance. The full-length album Wipe Out is almost as good. The revolutionary proto-metal guitar by Jim Fuller and pounding drums of Ron Wilson engulf every cut, especially the wild “Wiggle Woggle” and the cover of the aforementioned “Tequila.” One of the ultimate surf party platters, this album — despite its trashy production — has stood the test of time. – Matthew Greenwald
