Jonathan Richman and the Modern Lovers - 23 Great Recordings By Jonathan Richman and the Modern Loversdotdotdot
Jonathan Richman is one of those natural performers that finds a branch in your family tree to hook, leaving you not caring that he can't sing. Unpretentious honest homespun childlike lyrics and humor. Then, there's one of the best non-surf instros anywhere... "Egyptian Reggae."

Egyptian Reggae dotdotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Yeah, well I know it ain't a surf tune, but if you play surf guitar and want to do a really cool Caribbean / Middle Eastern instrumental, just rearrange this into your favorite surf configuration and viola! Perfect haunting fun surf monster. This is just plain fun, with it's blocks, reggae rhythms, Egyptian theme, acoustic lead guitar, and big gongs. It just grabs and holds you. Surf or not, if you like instros, this track is a must have.
