On both discs the bass and guitar come through well enough, but the drums sound like someone's playing cardboard boxes in a closet.
Add in the dubiously loud crowd noise between songs some of it just as loud or louder than when Dick Dale himself speaks into the mic and the mono sound and "bootleg" seems like a solid conclusion. Its a shame too, as both shows on here are great. His commercial peak may have been in the 60's, but the 90's were a great decade for Dick Dale, and his music, IMHO, never sounded better. This release has a great setlist of his best stuff, and its all played with great energy including some fun jam moments I love both of the live "Miserlou" performances.

Dale is truly a guitar legend. But I can't give it higher marks with sound this lo-fi. Shame they didn't have a better source for these two shows.
Dick Dale - Misirlou
Dale was known as "The King of the Surf Guitar", which was also the title of his second studio album. Dale worked closely with the manufacturer Fender to produce custom-made amplifiers  including the first-ever watt guitar amplifier. He learned the piano when he was nine after listening to his aunt playing it. He learned to play the instrument, using both lead and rhythm styles, so that the guitar filled the place of drums.
His early tarabaki drumming later influenced his guitar playing, particularly his rapid alternate picking technique. Dale referred to this as "the pulsation", noting all instruments he played derived from the tarabaki. Dale spent his senior year at and graduated from Washington Senior High School.
Dale began playing in local country western rockabilly bars where he met Texas Tiny in who gave him the name "Dick Dale" because he thought it was a good name for a country singer.
Dale employed non-Western scales in his playing. He regularly used reverbwhich became a trademark of surf guitar. Being left-handed, Dale tried to play a right-handed guitar, but then changed to a left handed model.
Dick Dale, king of surf guitar, remembered for high desert roots
He partnered with Leo Fender to test new equipment, later saying "When it can withstand the barrage of punishment from Dick Dale, then it is fit for the human consumption. The pair visited the James B. Dale's combination of a Fender Stratocaster and Fender Showman Amp allowed him to attain significantly louder volume levels unobtainable by then-conventional equipment. Dale's performances at the Rendezvous Ballroom in Balboa in mid to late are credited with the creation of the surf music phenomenon.
Dale obtained permission to use the 3, person capacity ballroom for surfer dances after overcrowding at a local ice cream parlor where he performed made him seek other venues. Dale's events at the ballrooms, called "stomps," quickly became legendary, and the events routinely sold out. His first full-length album was Surfers' Choice in The album was picked up by Capitol Records and distributed nationally, and Dale soon began appearing on The Ed Sullivan Showand in films where he played his signature single " Misirlou ".
He later stated, "I still remember the first night we played it "Misirlou". I changed the tempo, and just started cranking on that mother. The people came rising up off the floor, and they were chanting and stomping. I guess that was the beginning of the surfer's stomp.
Dale later said "There was a tremendous amount of power I felt while surfing and that feeling of power was simply transferred into my guitar". His playing style reflected the experience he had when surfing, and projecting the power of the ocean to people. Surf rock's national popularity was somewhat brief, as the British Invasion began to overtake the American charts in Though he continued performing live, Dale developed colorectal cancer.
Dale covered " Third Stone from the Sun " as a tribute to Hendrix. Inhe almost lost a leg after a pollution-related infection of a mild swimming injury.
As a result, Dale became an environmental activist and soon began performing again. He recorded a new album in and was nominated for a Grammy. In he appeared in the movie Back to the Beachplaying surf music and performing " Pipeline " with Stevie Ray Vaughan.
The following year, John Peel praised his playing following a gig in the Garage, London. He was scheduled to play the Australian One Great Night On Earth festival to raise funds to benefit those affected by the Black Saturday bushfires and other natural disasters. Dale said that he was forced to keep touring to the end of his life, because of his inability to afford his medical costs.
Dale was married three times. First wife Jeannie in the s was a Tahitian dancer in Hawaii and provided back up vocals for the release Spanish Eyes. From the proceeds, Dale and wife Jeannie made successful investments in nightclubs and real estate allowing Dale to purchase his three-story 17 room dream mansion at 'the Wedge' located in Newport Beach at the tip of the Balboa Peninsula and mouth to Newport Harbor. Jeannie toured with Dale and his Deltones through the early 80's up until their very public and bitter divorce in which depleted much of Dale's accumulated wealth.
He met his second wife Jill, a veterinary assistant, at a Huntington Harbour, Ca party in Dale credits Jill for his transition from Surf Rock to a more raw and stripped down style that consisted of just him and two other musicians.
Jill also provided back up vocals and drum tracks for Dale's Tribal Thunder  and Calling Up Spirits albums. Dale married third wife Lana in He said that he never used alcohol or other drugsfor health reasons, and discouraged their use by band members and road crew. Inhe stopped eating red meat. He studied Kenpo karate for over 30 years. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
