The Fabulous Nomads - Rumblin' Down The Highwaydotdotdot
artwork6 of the 11 tracks here are instros, mostly on the softer side of the surf, with a bit of country twang in lieu of reverb. From a surf perspective, this is significantly better than their first CD. Just one cover, which is great, and five original instros.
Picks: Las Olas, Nomad Ride, Sunsets, Baja, Summertime Fantasy, Road To Parker

Track by Track Review

Las Olas dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

"Las Olas" is a soft Spanish flavored liquid beach epic, with delicious lead guitar and a romantic edge. Very pretty track.

Nomad Ride dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Cruisin' down 101 in your Chevy Nomad at dawn, lookin' for the next secret spot. Open road adventure, the sparkle of dawn on the waves, and the promise of life on the edge. All that lurks between the lines of "Nomad Ride."

Sunsets dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

A prom piano plinks out an introduction to a slow dance number with a sinewy melody line. Very pretty and romantic.

Baja dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

This is a spiffy and spunky version of Lee Hazelwood's most famous surf instro. It has a soft power about it, with strong drums and ringing chords. Glissandoes and bass thump accompanies this fine cover of "Baja."

Summertime Fantasy dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

A very slow surf oriented instro, with island imagery, and a pretty melody. "Summertime Fantasy" is a very last dance at the prom kinda tune.

Road To Parker dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

A bit of country twang at the edge of the continent, gazing west at the relentless procession of rolling lines. A little repetitious, yet very pleasing. The bridges are particularly cool.
