A CD reissue of their 1963 debut album, with the addition of "Pipeline"'s B-side and both sides of the non-LP flop follow-up single. Mostly it's lesser variations of the "Pipeline" formula, including one instrumental penned by Tony Asher, Brian Wilson's writing partner for much of the Pet Sounds album. It doesn't include the single "Beyond," which can be found on the surf volume of Rhino/Guitar Player's Legends of Guitar series.
not sure this is the original, so buyer beware . . . . . . . . .
The Chantays showed us a band did'nt have to be a big band to get a hit. By playing music heavy on Bass,Drums and piping all the guitars into a "reverb" chamber, they brought the style of music that defines the early 60's. Bands like the Chantays brought us "Surfer" songs, and we loved them. Pipeline was one of the most popular songs that summer. They offered songs that brought the Bass up front,Drums with "that" beat, and "Reverb". Man did we go crazy over Reverb. The Surfer songs would be a drag without it.
This is to JJ Cale. Thanks for your input on this song. I think it might be the original version recorded in Dec. 1962. But you definitely would know for sure. By the way, I love the music you record too.
Formed: 1962 in Santa Ana, CA
Years Active: '60s, '90s
