artworkThis album is of voices, violin, and guitar. The one original instro is a soft and pretty number. The second instro here is actually The Lively Ones... no idea why it's included?
Picks: The Train Leaves At Eight, Misirlou

The Train Leaves At Eight dotdotdot
Lounge Surf (Instrumental)

Shimmering tremolo guitar lays down a lovely sad melody in delicate form. A lush loungy backtrack sets the mood just right. "The Train Leaves At Eight" is romantic and moody, with a rainy afternoon feeling. The violin midstream is very pretty.

Misirlou dotdotdotdot
Spy Surf (Instrumental)

No match for the Dick Dale version, but a damn fine rendition anyway. This has something magnetic about it, even though it is in some ways light weight.
