Surfin’ the Turf #25: The Cruel Sea

May 31, 2016 at 3:27 pm 1 comment

This tune was originally released in 1963 by the Dakotas, an English group (yes, the same Dakotas that backed up Billy J. Kramer). It peaked at #18 on the UK singles chart. It never charted in the USA. A year later, the Ventures covered it as the “B” side of their release “Walk Don’t Run ’64”.

My arrangement is very traditional, but does not copy either the Dakotas’ or the Ventures’ versions.
