Migwell's Surf Selections 002

Ok y'all, here's another fresh set of some of my favorite beach vibes featuring the mellower and more quiet side of classic surfing instrumentals.

And just like our first set, these four mellow instro tracks are the perfect wind down music for the end of a hectic day or perhaps you might want to include these into your Sunday morning mix. They go great with coffee or a Sea Breeze*.

First up, from Spain, The Breeze & I by The Vibrants off of their album The Exotic Guitar Sounds Of The Vibrants on El Toro Records. Not sure of the release date on this one, sorry.

Next is Driftin' by Dave Meyer & The Surftones from, I believe, 1964. I've got this on two compilations with 2 different dates.

Dig the sexy sax on this hot little 1963 number from The Tempomen. Ring up your honey and ask her pick up some cranberry juice * and you'll meet her at Midnight On Pier 13.

And finally, an Endless Summer knock off from 1965, The Islander, by The Sunliners who eventually changed their name and became Rare Earth in 1967. They had a handful of hits in the early 70's including covers of The Temptations' "(I Know) I'm Losing You" and "Get Ready".

Enjoy and thanks for listening.
