THE ENDLESS SUMMER SUPPLEMENT
Initially intended as part of WALTZING THE PLANK 2009-2013, this treatise was subsequently culled from that tome due to the length of the original document and because as a treatise, it had “stand-alone” potential.
In a nutshell, this treatise covers the impact musically of Bruce Brown’s iconic film on Australia and delves into the odd situation that TWO different record companies in Australia - Philips Records and Festival Records - released the soundtrack material by San Clemente based combo The Sandals.
THE ENDLESS SUMMER SUPPLEMENT covers this story in detail, together with information on other surf related recordings issued in Australia by Philips Records; cover versions of Theme From The Endless Summer, THE ENDLESS SUMMER REUNION in 2002 and an overview of The Sandals as a band and a documentation of their record releases both in America and Australia - all complete with many black and white and colour photos.
A must for any surf music fan or fan of THE ENDLESS SUMMER.
