The Rip Chords - Hey Little Cobra and Other Hot Rod Hitsdotdot
artworkThis is the first Rip Chords album. Of the fifteen tracks here, only two are instros, neither of which is much more than a backtrack, one being based on the "El Loco Cha Cha / Louie Louie" riff.
Picks: '40 Ford Time, Bunny Hill

'40 Ford Time dotdotdot
Backtrack (Instrumental)

This is essentially an undubbed backtrack to "Little Deuce Coupe" with a fuzz lead inserted in spots. Mostly a progression that never really gets off the ground.

Bunny Hill dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Not bad... a progression based on "Louie Louie" and a moderately interesting lead here and there. Sure sounds like a backtrack, yet it's interesting enough to work as is. The chunky rhythm and carries the day.
