In late 1963, Californias King of the Surf Guitar left the shore for the strip and created one of the classic albums of the hot-rod music genre. Dick Dales Checkered Flag is heavy with white-hot Dale instrumentals ("Night Rider," "Ho-Dad Machine") and vocal car tunes from the pens of pops songwriters (Gary Usher, Gary Paxton, Carol Connors). Helping Dale stir up the nitro fuel are L.A. session stars Plas Johnson, Steve Douglas, Hal Blaine and Earl Palmer. Checkered Flag is tough stuff, an unyielding trophy-run down the asphalt aisle. Make way! TRACK LISTING 1. The Scavenger 2. Surf Buggy 3. Hot Rod Racer 4. Mag Wheels 5. Big Black Cad 6. Ho-Dad Machine 7. Grudge Run 8. Motion 9. 426-Super Stock 10. The Wedge 11. It Will Grow On You 12. Night Rider.

Also available: CHECKERED FLAG (CD).
