Featured the songs for another classic Australian surf movie Evolution filmed by Paul Witzig in 1969, played by Australian group called Tamam Shud. This surfer quartet featured Lindsay Bjerre and Tim Gaze, both of them were successful for their solo career.

Tamam Shud was one of the most original and innovative Australian groups of the late 60s and early 70s. They played a very important part as pioneers of acid-rock and progressive music. For many years after they split they were something of a cult, and their original recordings were (and still are) very hard to obtain. But thanks to a gratifying 'comeback', and some commercial success with their 1994 album Permanent Culture, and the driving, bluesy single Stay, there has been a significant revival of interest in this outstanding and original group, and it sparked interest in this classic band with younger listeners as well.

The evolution of Tamam Shud was typical of many groups of the era, beginning as an instrumental band, through 'beat' pop group and psychedelia, to progressive rock… From the original line-up (The Sunsets), through to Evolution, Goolutionites, Morning of the Earth and Permanent Culture line-ups, the lingering "surf band" tag linked them with Sydney's northern beaches surf culture. In reality, they established their major fan base on Sydney's university and college dance circuit, and with the 'hippy' audiences at inner city underground venues like the Mandala Theatre in Darlinghurst and the Beacon Theatre in Newtown.

A bonus track, Bali Water (M-12) is featured Richard Lockwood (from Tully) and played his ethernal flute for this aesthetic & mystic psychdelia instrumental tune which became one of highlights of this CD.

"Evolution burst explosively on the surfing world in 1969, heralding a period a dynamic change which has never been repeated. The raw energy of the film, the surfing and the music came together to blow away old film & surf music styles, & seeded a youth culture which has swept the world." (Paul Witzig)
