Track by Track Review

Midnight Express dotdotdot
Rockabilly (Instrumental)

This is a typical B-side raver, a progression intent of rhythm, but without a melody. The sax is nasty and cool. It's all about small town rawkin' energy and edge!

Drifting dotdotdot
Rock Instrumental (Instrumental)

"Drifting" is a slow sax number with cool muted guitar rhythm and a walking bass. The guitar lines when it takes the lead are very nice. Saucy and groovy without being sleazy.
