Surfers’ Choice is the debut album of Dick Dale and his Del-Tones, pioneers in the surf genre. It was released in 1962. The recording established the conventions of surf music and brought the concept to middle America. The album was mostly recorded live at the Rendezvous Ballroom, with overdubs added in the studio. The record was out of print for a long time but was reissued on CD by Sundazed Records in October 2006. All tracks composed by Dick Dale; except where indicated.
