Phil Dirt - Reverb Central - PO Box 1609, Felton, CA 95018-1609 USA The Drivin' Dynamics - S/T
|The Drivin' Dynamics were an early band from which Randy Meisner (Eagles, etc.) came. They were pretty tame, or more bluntly, amateur and generally without an emotional edge to their music. There's nothing here for a surf fan.|
Picks: Tequila, Train To Nowhere, Walk, Don't Run, Wild Weekend
Track by Track Review
This is a very low-grade version of the song, clearly small potatoes young band covering the radio hits.
Boy-oh boy! This is a really simplistic version of the Champs' "Train To Nowhere." It's interesting that the surf influence is in the rhythm guitar's damped single note pattern, but everything else about the track is fifties rock 'n' roll.
The Venture's arrangement is replicated closely here, with no attempt at originality at all. Just a cover, but pretty well done.
None of the nasty edge the sax needs is here, and the performance is quite subdued. Strictly a fan track.
