Phil Dirt - Reverb Central - PO Box 1609, Felton, CA 95018-1609 USA The Guitar Ramblers - Surf Beat c/w El Torito
|This is the single from the Guitar Ramblers's album. The A-side is a very strange treatment of Dick Dale's classic "Surf Beat."|
Picks: Surf Beat, El Torito
Track by Track Review
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.
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.
