CT and Tommy Lee - Soul Saucedotdotdotdot
artworkThis is a wonderful surprise. CT and Tommy Lee is Chet Hogoboom and Tommy Nunes, former guitarist with The Sentinals. On this rock-soul album is a splendid new version of "Latin'ia." Superb! The whole album is very cool, but of course, surf fans will head right to track eight.
Picks: Latin'ia

Latin'ia dotdotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Acoustic and electric guitars, rich twang, and sultry whammy abound. This is really nice, with all the electric suave of The Sentinals' original, plus modern slither. This classic surf instro is so well written that it is easily adapted to a myriad of styles, and has been covered a lot. I read somewhere that it was inspired by Santo and Johnny's "Slave Girl," also called "Cairo," which was based on "Malaguena." This is extended, lush, and simply gorgeous.
