Phil Dirt - Reverb Central - PO Box 1609, Felton, CA 95018-1609 USA The Di Maggio Connection - The Wildest Game
|Italy's Di Maggio Connection, a rockabilly band with lots of originals, also include two instro on this CD. If you like modern roots rock, this is a fine release.|
Picks: Hillbilly Hurricane, Surf Attack - Di Maggio Theme
Track by Track Review
Big flash echo guitar thrashes out a rockabilly instro, with thumping upright bass and distant boomy drums. Lots of show, a great glissando, and too much fun.
Surf Attack - Di Maggio Theme
Aside from a few lines of original surf instro they call "Surf Attack," this is a festival of one and two lines from dozens of classic instros strung together to display the history of pop instros. Glissandos and flash add to the mix, and all that overlays a rompin' fun instro.
Included among the myriad of songs liberated from past ages are "Walk, Don't Run," "Miserlou," "Runaway," "Tequila," "Movin' and Groovin'," "Magnificent Seven," "The Simpson's Theme," "Perfidia," "Pipeline," (with the melody wrong), "Surf Rider," "Besame Mucho," "Wipe Out," "James Bond," "Goldfinger," "Apache," "Rebel Rouser," and "Red River Valley."
