The Sandals - The Endless Summer Soundtrack



Here's the original soundtrack to Bruce Brown's 1964 documentary "The Endless Summer". Though it isn't exactly the pinnacle of surf guitar, there's a lot of interesting stuff on here, particularly the use of the clavietta and the unique sound collages that were a fixture of this era. As for specific songs, the "Theme from 'The Endless Summer'" is a classic, and I can't listen to "6-Pak" without having a grin on my face. "Lonely Road" is used very effectively in the movie for scenes of travelling, and it's hard to listen to most of this music without getting images from the film. This isn't all of the music from the film, as some material was left off the LP for time, and other orchestral/exotica type music in the film wasn't performed by the Sandals at all.

I stressed the word original because there's a rerecorded version out there by The Sandals that doesn't even come close to this original LP. It's a shame that the catalog of the soundtracks to Bruce Brown's films are so shoddily available to the general public. Though all of them were released on the Pacific Jazz/World Pacific label, since that label has become defunct the music has been lost, despite it's indellable connection to these films. Bud Shank's work is only available commercially in an OOP limited edition, very expensive Mosaic box set, again making me pose the question, why must good music be kept exclusive or limited? I guess that's what blogs like this are for.

A true classic--it must be very expensive and rare to own the original vinyl record!

Mahalo for the great album. We seem to have a very similar taste in tunes so I'm sure I'll be visiting often.
Well done.
