California may be the largest state in the Union, but it's only one state nuzzling one ocean, with only so many people living near the coastline, and a small minority of them have attempted to navigate waves on a board, much less possess the fetching physique to do so in public. Obviously, then, surf music isn't for surfers. If it were, Rhino would put out a greatest-hits EP instead of a four-disc box set. Cowabunga! is all the permanent-wave stuff most people will ever need.

Next Generation of Swing assembles a dozen tracks from the retro-swing movement of the 1990s, tossing in a vintage ringer - Louis Prima's original "Jump, Jive an' Wail" - for good measure. The latter-day material doesn't quite capture the same excitement, although the Brian Setzer Orchestra's "Route 66," Royal Crown Revue's "Datin' with No Dough" and the Mighty Blue Kings' "Jumpin' at the Green Mill" come close.

You can't argue with a great concept: Songs sung by Frank Sinatra are interpreted by a slew of indie rock and punk bands. A great concept, but one that makes for truly (and gloriously) unpredictable results. Chairman of the Board is, of course, not a perfect record, but it offers up some true gems.

This is a mish mash of songs done by stars and faded stars. Some of these artists and songs may have gone down in obscurity if not for the producers of these CDs. The uniqueness is in most of the arrangements of the familiar songs that for the most part have been done better by others. There are a few no names that will tweak your interest. Good enhanced remastering.
