|This is a decent single, on the poppy side, but still rock'n'roll instrumental in character.|
Picks: Spanish Fleet, Horse's Neck
Track by Track Review
"Spanish Fleet" has a fine melody line delivered on tremolo guitar. The bass and drums are like their other recordings, but organ replaces sax. It has a genuine feel to it. Quite nice.
A clip-clop beat and really nice guitar play a pop melody with small time rock combo sound. "Horse's Neck" is significantly better than many such tracks. Imagine a likable pop rock outfit replacing the orchestral mung of the period and you get the idea. Poppy, but cool, like The String-A-Longs.
