|Three live tracks captured in their immediacy and spunk. Very good tracks.|
Picks: Apache, Bad News, Wipe Out
Track by Track Review
Jerry Lordan's venerable "Apache" is sweetly flowed out with swimming whammy and a spatial mix. Tribal and emotional.
The Trashmen transmitted "Church Key" under several titles, one of which was "Bad News." This is a pretty straight cover full of energy and spunk.
The Surfaris' "Wipe Out" is nicely done here. The chords are quite lovely. Always best left as a live track, as this is, The Birke Maier Trio has fun with it, and the crowd digs it too.
