Black Sand Beach

This is my cover of “Black Sand Beach”, an instrumental originally a released by the Ventures in 1967 on an album for the Japanese market entitled “Pops in Japan”. The song was composed by “Dan Kosaku”, whose real name was Yuzo Kayama — a Japanese popular musician, singer-songwriter and actor.

As a guitarist, he took inspiration from the  The Ventures, and performed  in the 1960s with using a Mosrite guitar.

The Ventures re-did the song in 1981 as the “B-side” to the single “Surfin’ and Spyin'” and called it “Showdown at Newport”.
