Wipe Out CD

Hi, this is from Bob Berryhill, original guitarist of The Surfaris, co-writer, performing artist of Wipe Out and Surfer Joe, recorded in 1962, album released in 1963. You are correct; this album is not the one I recorded in 1963. I have made several attempts to get iTunes to change this bogus information--I did not post it and I don't know where they got these notes. The CD for sale here I recorded in 2005, as the stats say next to the image. This CD has rerecorded versions of Wipe Out and Surfer Joe (sung by my son Joel) plus 8 new surf instrumental originals written by me and bandmates Gene, Deven and Joel. Check out our website at for more info. ps. I had to post a rating to send this message.

I love this album!!!

I highly recommend this album for people who love great music and a good time. Of course Wipe Out and Surfer Joe are timeless classics. The songs bring me right to the beach! I especially love the other songs too, Avalanche, Secret Cove and Magic Sands. Ther're all great!!!!

A Glendora, CA, surf group remembered for "Wipe Out," the number two 1963 hit that ranks as one of the great rock instrumentals, featuring a classic up-and-down guitar riff and a classic solo drum roll break, both of which were emulated by millions (the number is no exaggeration) of beginning rock & rollers. They recorded an astonishing number of albums (about half a dozen) and singles in the mid-'60s; the "Wipe Out" follow-up, "Point Panic," was the only one to struggle up to the middle of the...
