Track by Track Review


Out Of Limits dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

This is a pedestrian cover of the Marketts' hit record. It is odd when you realize that this track was issued in 1967, long after the passing of surf. I have often wondered if theTravelin' Men album was a contractual obligation, filled with out takes from session over the prior three years with RCA.
