The Sunrays - For Collector's Only: Vintage Rays (1996)
A near-complete collection of everything the Sunrays ever recorded, including a 1996 reunion track ("Longboards Rule"), this is the only collection you'll ever need by this third-string surf group. The Sunrays are historically important only for the curiosity value of the fact that their manager was Murry Wilson, who assembled the group out of spite after he was relieved of his duties as the Beach Boys' manager. Unfortunately, Wilson didn't realize that surf music was pretty much over by early 1965 when the earliest Sunrays tracks were released, or that surf-inflected renditions of blues classics like Willie Dixon's "Seventh Son" were not a very good idea. There are a few really nice tracks here, particularly the semi-hit "Andrea" and the folk-rocking "Don't Take Yourself Too Seriously," but this set only proves that the Sunrays were only marginally talented, and many of these 58 tracks are simply filler at best. For Collectors Only is, for once, honestly titled: This set is only for surf historians.
