Track by Track Review


Autumn In Japan dotdotdot
Euro (Instrumental)

using the rhythm pattern from Jackie De Shannon's "Needles & Pins," "Autumn In Japan" is a very pretty Shadows style instro. The backtrack is mono, with stereo coming only from stereo delayed lead guitar.

Bengt Vid Granspolisen dotdotdotdot
Euro (Instrumental)

This verges on beefy, with murky sound, surf whammy, and a great melody line. "Bengt Vid Granspolisen" has beautiful chords and a lovely image of a rainy day in the islands. very nice. Essentially mono, except for the stereo delay on the overdubbed lead.

Johnny Guitar dotdotdot
Euro (Instrumental)

"Johnny Guitar" is a classic in Europe. This is a silky romantic version with Shadows long-echo guitar.

Linda's Tune dotdotdot
Euro (Instrumental)

First off, this is not the Mexican standard called "Linda's Tune" that the Rancheros made so cool. It's a slowish and fluid number with an easy sound and warm feeling.
