|Just four instros among a throng of surfed up party swillers. This is the most fun and entertaining party CD I've heard in ages. There's a welcome cover of "Annette's Got The Hits" among the slab of 15 vocals.|
Picks: Kamehamea, Hangman, Mr. Gassy, Kamikaze
Track by Track Review
The sea laps the shore while a couple of numbskulls discuss marks on a corpse. Then "Kamehamea" arrives, and it's a splashy and mighty fun instro with a very original melody line that's upbeat and engaging. Dribbling double picking, and wonderful tone, with great drums and arranging.
"Hangman" is a romping almost frat rockin' surf grinder with a beer-soaked grin. Very much a party splash. There's lots to have fun with here.
There's burpin' aplenty as "Mr. Gassy" displays his talents throughout this party theme. Great splashy surf tone and ample fun.
Paul Johnson's "Kamikaze" gets a cowboy backbeat for a whole new sound. It makes a great difference. Splashy, richly driven, and way too fun!
