Track by Track Review
Walk Don't Run - Pipeline
This is a very pedestrian version of "Walk Don't Run" based on The Ventures 1960 hit arrangement. The spirit is low, but it's OK. half way through, The New Hawks drop into a decent "Pipeline" with some very nice guitar licks.
The phone rings... it's James Bond calling. Aside from the gimmick, this is more or less a straight rock instro with nothing really new happening, and it also has too much bass in the mix. The drum break is OK, especially when accompanied by guitar play.
