|The b-side of this single is an odd instro from the Surfin' 'Round The World album. Certainly not the best, but quite original in style and sound.|
Picks: Makaha At Midnight
Track by Track Review
"Makaha At Midnight" is a really bizarre attempt at Hawaiian guitar, with some distortion on the guitar. It is a moody mysterious piece with very strange sounds. To Bruce's credit, it is inventive and unique. A slow-dance melodic tune. That album is something of an enigma... puzzling ideas of disparate sources merged together for some sort of impressionistic view of the surf world. A few of the tracks work, but many are just typical of the studio session hit factory output of the period.
