Guitar Legend: The Very Best Of Dick Dale features surf-rock pioneer Dick Dale's finest recordings spanning his entire career, the first such single-disc collection to cast such a wide net. The cross-licensed compilation covers not only his early genre-defining hits such as "Miserlou," "Let's Go Tripping," and "Surf Beat," but also rare B-sides and album tracks, acclaimed comeback recordings, and his famed 1987 collaboration with Stevie Ray Vaughan on their cover of The Chantays' "Pipeline."
Dick Dale is not only "the King of The Surf Guitar," but also one of surf music's prime architects. His playing style and role in the role in the development of electronic amplification paved the way for heavy metal. Dale is ranked #31 on Rolling Stone's list of 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time, and he was discovered by a new generation of fans when Quentin Tarantino featured "Miserlou" in his film Pulp Fiction. Dale continues to tour regularly.
