"Liberty's Whip" is one of the most famous surfer songs in the world, recorded by the Chantays in 1962 or 1963. Never heard of it? That's because, according to Wikipedia, they renamed it "Pipeline". They performed their only Billboard hit on The Lawrence Welk Show in May 1963.
This is one of those songs that if I could have a jukebox filled with covers it would account for about a third of the choices because I love so many of them, including this one by Anthrax from their Attack of the Killer B's compilation in 1991.
If you've read this blog for any length of time you should know that my musical heart belongs to Stevie Ray Vaughan (if you're new, you'll learn). SRV recorded "Pipeline" with Dick Dale for the soundtrack to Back to the Beach, starring Frankie Avalon and Annette Funicello from 196...1987? Wow. Anyway, this vid isn't that cover. This is SRV live with his brother Jimmie in New Orleans, family style.
Are you awake? I'm awake. Now if it would just stop raining. *Sigh* Have a great day.
