Merrell Fankhauser's Tiki Lounge Volume One DVD

Review by Eric Meli

This DVD is a compilation of former surf group The Impacts’ Merrell Fankhauser's cable television show “Tiki Lounge.” The first episode is based on instrumental surf with an interview with Dick Dale and a Ventures medley shot in 1989. Out of the other five episodes, one is called “Fast Cars and Rock and Roll,” which has a Huey Lewis and the News video and also a video by the Doobie Brothers. There’s also a concert with Willie Nelson and a Spirit tribute included here. This DVD also features a 40-minute audio CD with some of the music from the “Tiki Lounge” program.

This review is available in book format (hardcover and paperback) in Music Street Journal: 2012  Volume 4 at
