Phil Dirt - Reverb Central - PO Box 1609, Felton, CA 95018-1609 USA The Rip Chords - Hey Little Cobra and Other Hot Rod Hits
|This 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
Track by Track Review
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.
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.
