Track by Track Review


Walk Don't Run - Pipeline dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

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 James Bond Theme dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

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.
