Phil Dirt - Reverb Central - PO Box 1609, Felton, CA 95018-1609 USA Davie Allan - War Path c/w Beyond The Blue
|This was Davie's first single, reissued in 1964 on Marci. This single shows just how melodic Davie's writing is, and how great his pre-fuzz playing was. Exquisite, and damn rare.|
Picks: War Path, Beyond The Blue
Track by Track Review
It is an Indian styled surf tune of unusual brilliance. It has a great melody, and a great sound. A totally infectious single! The first of four versions of this tune, this being pretty dry, with nice string bending, and great damped picking transitions. I find this to be one of Davie's prettiest tunes, and this version is very nice.
"Beyond The Blue" is slow, shiny, surfy, and really pretty. Davie isn't just a fuzz monster. This melodic and flowing track is one of the great surf obscuros.
