Track by Track Review
This infectious surf instro was a regular part of theGo-Go's set for most of their existence. Charlotte Caffey was a surf instro collector as well as their lead guitarist, so the song is a natural. It is catchy enough to have caught the attention of those chameleons of the instro world the Ventures, who not only covered it quite nicely, but used the Go-Go's to do the vocal accents. This version is the better of the two, but the Go-Go's live version (bootleg) is the best of all!
