Various Artists — Soundtrack: Endless Summer II (1994)

VA endless summer

By Scott Goldfine

The music of the surfing film “The Endless Summer II” is just as footloose and fancy free as the images it accompanies. Performed by talented guitarist Gary Hoey, this collection of instrumentals runs the gamut of musical styles and catches fire often.

Highlights include a duet with surf guitar legend Dick Dale (“Shake and Stomp Part II”) and a spirited cover of War’s 1970s gem “Lowrider.”
