Phil Dirt - Reverb Central - PO Box 1609, Felton, CA 95018-1609 USA Collection: Surfin' Draggin' and Twistin'
|There's a lot of crap-ola on this disc, mostly fake Beach Boys clones. The two instros are sad at best.|
Track by Track Review
The Music City 5 - Wipe Out
This is an attempt to duplicate The Surfaris' sound, but the energy is so low that it's just not the same. It's not that it's not good, it's just that a copy without that full bodies attack just isn't enough.
The Music City 5 - Telstar
This uses part of the opening sound effects from The Tornados' single, but lacks any of that signature Joe Meek compression, or the sparkle and intensity of the band, and the chorus is just lame.
