The folks at Sundazed bring you yet another great album from the surf rock kings The Challengers from 1964. This release includes 3 bonus tracks 'Hot Rod Show', Hot Rod Hootenanny' and 'The Fastest Time'. This is the fourth album by prolific surf band the Challengers. It is named after their best known song, "K-39". Most of the rest of the album features cover versions of (then) recent instrumental hits. This is good stuff. The songs are well played in the classic surf music style. The version of "Wipe Out" is especially interesting, because it has a very different arrangement than the Surfaris hit version.
