Track by Track Review
Go Go (Instrumental)
Riffy organic 60's go-go grind.
Very Booker T. & the MG's influenced with a nod to Beat Generation.
Major gutty guitar lines based on Amon Duul II's "All The Years Round." Quite a nice number!
Low down semi-jazz number with major guttiness. Quite cool... Surf tiki bar hammerers.
Major label / film studio party psych wah wah... ho hum.
Sensible Shoes For Barbie
Carnival side show cute and fun, but no surf at all.
Big GuitarOrgan (Instrumental)
Cheap thrills sampled intro, then organ & military drums, and finally a big guitar line... cool.
Booker T. & the MG's organ.
Dia de los Muertos
Organ & guitar combine for a spy lounge track.
Tape hiss and too much organ mar this track. Sorta "Raw Hide" on "Let's Make A Deal!" Very strange!
OrganBar Band (Instrumental)
Organ bar song a la Vegas grindola.
