artworkThe a-side here was a monster record in the US, completely obscuring The Shadows who dominated most of the rest of the world with their version of this song. This is where the string swipe arrows originated. The b-side is completely unremarkable.

Track by Track Review


Apache dotdotdotdotdot
Pre Surf (Instrumental)

Around the world, it was Hank Marvin and the Shadows that hit with Jerry Lordan's tune in 1960. Everywhere except Denmark and the US, where Jorgen Ingmann ruled the charts with this exceptional track. It's my personal opinion that this is the quintessential version of "Apache." When will Atco reissue the album? Every surf band on earth played this tune in the early days of reverb.

Echo Boogie dotdot
Guitar Boogie (Instrumental)

Echoed guitar boogie in the traditional sense, play in a lightweight vein. Pretty, fluid, remain-seated bounce, and kinda jazzy.
