Track by Track Review
"Lara's Theme" from Doctor Zhivago gets a facelift as Los Bulldogs convert it into an organ instro for a verse or two, and a guitar instro for the rest. It's small combo rock style is only interesting for the lead guitar's whammy notes and slight modulation. There is some double picking at the end.
Well, isn't this interesting! Crude double picking, dry tone, a rock rhythm track, and yet... it's surf isn't it. Obviously based primarily on Dick Dale's single, there are also extracts from the Surfer's Choice version. Spunky, illusive, and cool in a primitive garage sort of way.
Garage Pop Surf (Instrumental)
Reverby guitar plays a simple riff, organ plays the same progression, and the backtrack is basic rock pop. There are times when it verges on surf, but then the chorus comes in. Garagy and kinda goofy.
