|The Crescent Six were about 16 when this single was recorded and released in 1965. The a-side vocal reportedly charted in England, though I have not seen any hard evidence of that. The b-side is a surf instro.|
Track by Track Review
Starting with a nifty bass run and sax scowl, then bringing in surf guitar and organ playing an infectious melody riff. More jammy than melodic, yet spunky and pretty fun. The mix is relatively demo like with the surf guitar subdued, but in the end, "Nightmare" does have an infectious something.
