|The a-side of this 1964 single is really cool ! The b-side - not so much. That might be why the b-side has not been comped.|
Picks: The Outer Limits
Track by Track Review
With almost "Boondocker" rhythm guitar work, warbly leads and behind the bridge notes permeating the track, this stands out as one of the most unusual surf releases. It's ominous and weird, and surfing aliens written all over it. Too cool!
Nothing at all like the a-side ("Outer Limits"), this is part exotica and part guitar instro almost surf. The horrid part is the over dubbed female wailing. If that were deleted, this would be a very easy to like, gentle guitar instro.
