Track by Track Review


Surf Beat dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

This is one of the more bizarre treatments of Dick Dale's classic "Surf Beat." Not a speck of double picking, except the bridge, which sounds like Billy Strange's playing. It works, even has a strange magnetic quality about it.

El Torito dot
Mall MOR (Instrumental)

"El Torito" is not about the restaurant chain, though it's just cheesy enough with its whistling warbling organ lead and Pastel Six wanna be flair.
