"Featuring the songs from another classic Australian surf movie filmed by Paul Witzig in 1969, played by an Australian group called Tamam Shud. This surfer quartet featured Lindsay Bjerre and Tim Gaze -- both of them successful for their solo career. Tamam Shud was one of the most original and innovative Australian groups of the late '60s and early '70s. They played a very important part as pioneers of acid-rock and progressive music. For many years after they split, they were something of a cult, and their original recordings were (and still are) very hard to obtain. But thanks to a gratifying "comeback," and some commercial success with their 1994 album Permanent Culture, and the driving, bluesy single "Stay," there has been a significant revival of interest in this outstanding and original group, and it sparked interest in this classic band with younger listeners as well. The evolution of Shud was typical of many groups of the era, beginning as an instrumental band, through "beat" pop songs and psychedelia, to progressive rock." (label info)
