Track by Track Review


Surfin' Tragedy dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

This sultry guitars-only rendition of the Bob Vaught and the Renegades number is moody and almost mystical in it's ambiance and washing whammy. Very pretty.

Love Goddess Of Venus dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

The Ventures prettied and warmed up. This is a very sad piece, with emotional depth and clear tone. Very tasty.

Sweet Dark Lolita dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Nearly slithering, "Sweet Dark Lolita" slow and very moody piece simply oozes sadness and post prom midnight walks.

Surfer's Lament dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Well now, is' mighty interesting what happens when you extract the tribal funeral drums from the original Surf Men or Lively Ones versions... it becomes a twilight lagoon with moonlight flickering off of the nearly flat water in a warm tropical breeze. Very nice.

Atlantis dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Gorgeous ringing harmonics and sultry tone provide a mighty moody basis for this excellent performance.

Sleepwalk dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Santo and Johnny's el classico with echo and reverb, and whammy in lieu of lap steel floating. Pretty and very smooth.
