Track by Track Review


Too Much Tequila dotdotdot
Latin R&B Rock (Instrumental)

This is one of several follow ups to their "Tequila." It is a sax based number, slower than it's inspiration, and with more of an "El Rancho Grande" sound to it. The guitar break is acoustic and quite nice.

Carioca dotdotdot
Pre Surf (Instrumental)

Now if you want to hear groundbreaking ideas, try this on for size. Long before Jack Nitzche growled out "The Lonely Surfer," the Fireballs were playing a really low lead lines (maybe even on a bass?). Really evil for it's day!

Wayward Nile dotdotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Pretty unusual Middle Eastern flavored tune with a definite Chantays edge. It's amazing how durable this track is. Shimmering and slightly exotic, with the classic Chantays sound.
