Phil Dirt - Reverb Central - PO Box 1609, Felton, CA 95018-1609 USA Bob Irwin and the Pluto Walkers - Joker's Wild c/w The Throwaway Age
|Two sides from Sundazed records mogul Bob Irwin, with the b-side being the one that really stands out for me. This is a very nice single!|
Picks: Joker's Wild, The Throwaway Age
Track by Track Review
The Ventures' "Joker's Wild" is done very nicely in vintage mono. Bob Irwin's band does a fine job with this relatively obscure number. Very reverent, and nicely mixed.
Shimmering with tremolo and moody sound, "The Throwaway Age" is easily the better of the two sides of this single. Its island imagery and cool tribal drums really make this endearing. Very cool!
