Digitally remastered edition of this rare 1963 album. In the late '90s, Bacchus Archives was put in touch with surf legend Norman Knowles, member of the Revels and writer of the surf classic 'Church Key' as Norman produced the classic but totally obscure LP that was originally released on the budget Sutton label in 1963, with no liner notes, no inner sleeve, and no distribution beyond the dollar rack at local grocery stores! It was rumored that there were some unreleased tracks and as it turned out, Norman had them! The tracks were taken from the best sources possible with many in stereo. The Surf Teens were from the central coast town of Atascadero, California and at the time consisted of Jeff Hammond, 16 years old, lead guitar, John Hammon, 13 years old, drums, Greg Smith, 16, rhythm guitar, Tony Johnson, 20, bass - their ages at the time of recording SURF MANIA prove indeed that they were surf teens!
