Dick Dale - Mr. Eliminator LP
1964’s Mr. Eliminator, the second album of hot-rod songs from Dick Dale, is another fuel-injected fun ride down the asphalt aisle! Once again, Dick shreds his way through scorching guitar instrumentals like “The Victor, ” “Nitro Fuel” and the tenacious title track. But that’s not all! Vocal selections like the Bo Diddley-beat-driven “50 Miles to Go” and “My X-KE” paint vivid portraits that any gear-head can appreciate. The studio pit-crew assisting Dick includes top-notch players Glen Campbell, Jerry Cole, Earl Palmer, Plas Johnson and future Beach Boy Bruce Johnston. Talk about firing on all cylinders! From start to finish, Mr. Eliminator sets them up and shuts them down. Sourced from the original Capitol Records stereo masters, this Sundazed Music edition of Mr. Eliminator is pressed on 180-gram vinyl and includes complete original artwork. I’ll meet you down at Hot Rod Alley after the victory lap!
