Track by Track Review


Cross Country dotdot
Rock (Instrumental)

An infectious rhythm runs beneath a simple guitar line. Much like a rocked out guitar boogie shuffle kind of song, it romps and roams in a primitive fifties style. "Cross Country" is an unissued track from the Sarg vaults.

Grubby Guitar dotdot
Blues (Instrumental)

"Grubby Guitar" is a slow blues with plinking piano and nothing original or unusual going on. It would be lost in the sea of such tracks.

On The Move dotdot
Rock (Instrumental)

"On The Move" is an almost saucy number with very common elements and rhythms from the fifties.

Diamond Back dotdotdot
Country (Instrumental)

Finger style noodling in a country setting with rock intentions. Not melodic, just rhythmic and jammy. Still, it displays substantially good guitar work. Very fun!

Rise And Shine dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Echoed guitar twangin' a cool riff with notable early trio arranging where the guitar plays leads amidst single note rhythm patterns to create a full sound. The break is a relatively uninspired sax lead affair. Very cool!
