The Cousins - The Cousinsdotdotdot
artworkI think this is album number two from Belgium's Cousins. Given that they were only recording between 1960 and 1962, they release a ton of singles and albums. The Cousins contains a modest version of "Apache."

Surf (Instrumental)

In some ways, this is more interesting than the Shadows which likely inspired it. Not that it's great or anything like it, but it's slower and much ore dramatic. Aside from Sonny James' vocal version and Jorgen Ingmann's take, most from 1960-61 were copies of the Shadows. An original arrangement and relaxed pace combine to create a welcome diversion from the sea of copies.
