Phil Dirt - Reverb Central - PO Box 1609, Felton, CA 95018-1609 USA Tommy Reed and the Runaways - Swamp Rider c/w Durango
|Two excellent sides with surf rhythms, moody lead guitar, and a creative and simple arrangement. This is a rather obscure single. There's nothing at all I can find about the band.|
Picks: Swamp Surfer, Durango
Track by Track Review
A Pipeline rhythm backs this moody melody instro. It's very unusual, and the infectious bridges make it really cool. The break is a bit jammy, but otherwise "Swamp Surfer" is just plain boss.
This is a fine instro with a moody Mexican flavor. Echoed guitar and a faux mariachi horn in the break complete the picture. "Durango" is warm and gentle, like an after the rain scene. Excellent.
