Track by Track Review
Dave produced a unique arrangement of a song that was recorded by a bazillion instro bands, making it his own. I like it better than the original Revels version because of Dave's great double picking throughout matched exactly by his marvelous drummer. One of the better covers of the Revel's classic, and certainly the most surfy under it's original name.
Slow and moody with tempo changes. Shimmering and romantic while retaining a certain ominous air about it. Also, this is quite original.
