Tribal Thunder
The Story
Guitarist Dick Dale reports, ""Tribal Thunder" is the first time in my recordings that I have been able to have complete control over the way my Fender Strat guitar (The Beast) has been captured. Before, the engineers could not stop the sound of the beast from bleeding throughout the recording soundboard without putting limiters and suppressors on my guitar sound. Now, I have found the secret how to record the full fat sounds of my Strat. Enjoy and listen to the Thunder!" Replete with loud, fast, reverb-soaked guitar and throbbing drumming, "Tribal Thunder" is the hard driving music that Dick Dale fans have come to expect.
