Track by Track Review


Rebel Surf dotdotdotdot
Surf-N-Soul Groove (Instrumental)

With a guitar line reminiscent of What Ever Happened To Eddie, and dark sax melody lines, this is a perfect track to run under a surf video about huge waves and bad wipe outs. A big day at Waimea after a tsunami. Funky, but mostly Link Wray and surf centered. A fine track for sure.

I'm Branded dotdotdot
Surf-N-Soul Groove (Instrumental)

Link Wray's garage monster, deliberately funked and grooved, with amazing effect. I usually fine covers of this tune to be fairly uninteresting, but this is very fresh, like James Brown on a classic Dewey Webber, or something. Raw guitar tones, and thump galore.
