Mr. Eliminator is the 4th studio album of surf music by surf pioneer Dick Dale (and his Del-Tones), released in 1964 as a loose conceptual successor to the previous album Checkered Flag. This album consists mostly of hot-rod or racing themes, whether simply in the names, or in the slight alteration of beats and accompaniment as well, as was seen in the Checkered Flag album. Dale is widely known and famous for incorporating heavy middle-eastern influence into his recordings, and some may argue that "The Victor", a track on the album, as being probably the heaviest in influence. This album was Dale's last venture into the hot-rod style of surf music, and with his next album (and last studio album with the Del-Tones), Summer Surf, he would return to the "regular" style of surf music.
