The Rip Chords - Shut 'Em Down...Againdotdotdot
artworkThis CD features all new recordings by one of the bands from the sixties that sang about surf and beaches and girls and hot rods. The Rip Chords were among the few that were successful. Some of the vocals here are studio tracks, others live. There is one very nice new original instro included.

Cobra Beach dotdotdot
California Carefree (Instrumental)

This surfish instro is very California carefree, with a warm melody and just a touch of romantic sadness. While it's not surf per-say, "Cobra Beach" has a beach attitude and sunny feeling. The drums are cool, the guitars counter one another well, and the song invites repeated listenings.
