Track by Track Review


Ride The Wild Surf dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

A cool drum beat and great reverb, backed by organ subdued in the mix drive this very interesting version of Lee Hazelwood's "Baja." This is easily one of the most original arrangements from the sixties. Very cool indeed!

Breakaway dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

"Breakaway" is a slowish number with muted surf guitar and a chop chord rock rhythm. While it's only slightly more than riff rock, its glissandos and garage charm make it work pretty well.
