ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Dans les profondeurs de l'hiver, il y a la SENSATION de PLANER! (Out of the deep of winter, there is the sound of a SURF SENSATION!)

Montreal is a tough town for surfers. The biggest waves come from the wakes of passing freighters on the St. Lawrence, and icebergs are more of a threat than shark attack. Realizing the futility of pursing the big wave sport at the local break, the boys of The Mel-tones sought solace in the crashing reverb and pounding drums of instrumental surf music.

The Mel-tones brought warmth to the darkest winter nights with sounds reeking of sea salt, sun-tan lotion and surfboard wax. Their music explodes in a sun-drenched reverie: "Rocket Sled to Oahu" takes you to the breakers with almost reckless haste, a "Reef Patrol" out where the heavies roll in, the subtle balance and excitement at the "Break Point", and "Papakolea Beach", the secret surfing spot.

Like the many moods of a brooding ocean, The Mel-tones music can rise like the wild surf at the cusp of day in "Surf Before Sunrise", lap gently on the shore, with the promising laugh of a wistful wahine in "Polynesian
Adventure", hint at the mournful mysteries of the deep in "Sands Go Vermilion" or balance gallantry and greed for "The Last Papaya."

And yet, the sounds of The Mel-tones range far from the sea itself as well. There's the drama of a high-plains showdown in "You'll Never Surf in this Town Again". The international intrigue and innuendo of "Surfin' Natasha". The potential for a titanic temblor in "Fault Line". And of course, the martial-arts mania of "Kung Fu Saturdays".

Yes, The Mel-tones show that the surf is in the heart and the soul, and these thirty-three tracks are ample proof. If you've ever found yourself hankering to hula, longing for a luau, or dreaming of the perfect wave, sit back and enjoy as The Mel-tones bring you the SURF SENSATION.

New Gandy Dancer, August 2003, Issue 69, pg 41 ("The World's Longest Running Rock Instrumental Magazine" (based in the UK))

The Mel-tones "Surf Sensation" (LoveCat Music)

A VERY healthy 33 tracker (nice sleeve too), from the excellent Mel-tones from Montreal who we've enjoyed in the past and led by Mel Waldorf on geetar.

Their material has a real surf and Hawaii tone to it with "Perfect Wave" and "Tiki Cabana" being good examples of the latter. The group can also be raucous and there's plenty to choose from in that idiom. We liked "Incognito" (spy/surf) and the thumping "Surfin' Natasha" and the twin guitars on "Go Big Or Go Home". A pile of originals take a while to get used to, but these are very well done and will give listeners a chance to hear some fine riffs and edgy drumming and bass - and 33 tracks, in the car CD player, will shorten the longest journey we suspect.

Robert Bowrosen

Fantastic album! The Mel-Tones have that old surf sound! I love it!
This CD was excellent & I'm waitind for more from this band! Anyway, From the opening song Kung Fu Saturdays to the last song Surf Clam it was a pure joy to listen to! I have listened to this CD at least 10 times if not more since it arrived in the mail. The twangyness of the guitars are pure heaven and the perfect drum sound for this type of music was incredible! Thanx Mel-Tones!

Surf music with many welcome variations
Few music genres are as honest and true as surf music. From the first note, the listener is unmistakeably transported to a watery world of pipelines and wipeouts, beach parties, bikinis and boards. It's possibly the most evocative music ever created. On this CD the Mel-Tones don't just tread the familiar territory of the Surfaris and the Astronauts - they broaden the horizon to take in settings and styles not normally associated with the world of the surfer, and it works. The bonus for lovers of this type of music, and who also happen to be in love with Nickleodeon's spongey yeller feller, is a number of SquarePantian themes usually only heard briefly in the show over episode intros or scene changes. Experiencing the full versions is a treat. At 33 tracks, this CD is fantastic value too, the perfect soundtrack to a drive down a long ocean road. And if you're nowhere near the ocean, you soon will be.

Kick off your lawn and replace it by sand...
...so I did. I listen to Mel-Tones and live in Bikini Bottom.

michael kadel

that gives it that extra something
here is the straight soundtrack to watch all the longboard-dudes on the atlanticcoast beach in biarritz

What a find....!
If you only buy one surf CD for your collection make sure its this one. It has it all and more. If you're standing the first time you put it on, watch out for the furniture, coz you won't be able to stop bopping. If you're driving, you better hold on to that wheel with both hands. This is my favourite surf CD. What a find, ...and you won't find greater value for your money anywhere.

Old SChool Surf
If you like old school surf then this the album for you. Just about every lick and trick of the original instrumental surf sound is here. It's 1963 again!

Surf Sensational!
Surf's up! Time to get in your woodie and turn up the radio. This surf instrumental cd is required listening for any surf instro fan. Highly recommended for that reverb twang of instrumental surf tunes. A bonus is the 33 tunes on one cd. Lots of tunes, lots of surf!
