Thom Starr was one of the most talented of surf music's first generation of guitar heroes. A legend on the original South Bay scene where the surf genre was created and nurtured, Starr wowed live crowds with his band the Galaxies, and made a handful of recordings that are revered by multiple generations of surf guitar devotees.
Starr's vintage work has been impossible to find, with most of his recordings remaining completely unreleased and with his few official releases long out of print. South Bay Surf: Anthology 1963-1964 redresses that situation by making this under-the-radar guitar god's output accessible to the public in album form for the first time ever. This amazing Sundazed collection has been mastered from the original analog sources and features rare photos and a detailed history by surf music authority John Blair. A treasure trove of reverb-filled surf guitar!
