Phil Dirt - Reverb Central - PO Box 1609, Felton, CA 95018-1609 USA The Exports - Car Hop c/w Seat Belts Please
|For a major label single, the Exports' "Car Hop" c/w "Seat Belts Please" is illusive. Only the A-side has been comp'd on a bootleg 12" in mono, and surprisingly in stereo on CD.|

Track by Track Review
This surf instro is a magnificent example of the roots of the twangy sound that has become identified with Los Straitjackets. With good reason, they cover this fine record. Infectious, bouncy, and very fun.
This is a pretty twangy surf instro with a lumbering gate and sort of R&B melody line, though it's delivered with a surf feel. Not as interesting as the A-side, but very good.
