Extremely limited quantity!

In November 1963, the Trashmen came roaring out of the frozen, landlocked expanses of Minnesota to shake the foundations of Western culture with their debut release “Surfin’ Bird.” Two and a half minutes of gleeful, unhinged garage abandon, it set a standard for transcendent teen dementia that’s never been bested! In the early months of ’64, just as Beatlemania was beginning to hit America, the Bird ascended to the Number Four spot on Billboard’s singles chart, as well as becoming a seminal smash in such far-flung locales as Australia, Sweden, Mexico and Venezuela.

Nearly half a century later, these hearty heartland heroes are still rocking up a storm, and their signature tune’s iconic status is stronger than ever, recurring in numerous movies, TV shows and commercials, and inspiring cover versions by the Ramones, the Cramps and countless others. But the original is still the greatest!

Now that the entire world knows that the Bird is the Word, Sundazed Music presents this immortal rock ’n’ roll landmark the way it was first heard in 1963. Paired once again with its equally inspired original B-side “King of the Surf,” this is the ultimate “Surfin’ Bird” experience!!!

While Sundazed Kustom Shop test pressings are offered for the benefit of dedicated record collectors, they may not be the final, approved pressings issued by Sundazed. For example: Items designated as “colored vinyl test pressing" are just that. They were sent to Sundazed by the manufacturer to make certain we got just the right shade of avocado green or cream of tomato soup red. The songs, of course, will remain the same as the released version, although there may be slight variations in label text.

Please note: Since we're dealing with an extremely limited supply of rare items in the Kustom Shop, remember that these collectors' pieces cannot be returned.
