Track by Track Review
The traditional drinking song "Little Brown Jug" is adapted to a presurf format with shimmering vibrato lead guitar. In many ways, "Happy Little Jug" is closer to what became the surf genre than the Belairs' first single B-side. Pretty cool!
"Street Beat" is a slow stroll in what might be described as a clean Link Wray mold. Too simple to really capture your attention, but hinting at what coulda been a contender with more power and energy, and a little reverb.
