Track by Track Review


El Tren De Memphis dotdotdot
Train Rock (Instrumental)

The train is brought forth by galloping drums and sax playing a train whistle. The guitar lead is western and very cool. "El Tren De Memphis" reminds me of some of the Champs' songs. This is very fun and light hearted.

Corazon De Roca dotdot
Rock (Instrumental)

"Corazon De Roca" is a mid tempo blues number with a saxy fifties sound. It's not particularly engaging.

El Paso Del Elefantito dotdotdotdot
Zoo Surf (Instrumental)

"El Paso Del Elefantito" translates to "Baby Elephant Walk." I'm quite sure that Henry Mancini didn't mean this, though perhaps he should have. Surfish second guitar, whacky lead, and a relentless rhythm track. It's quite a cool track.
