Phil Dirt - Reverb Central - PO Box 1609, Felton, CA 95018-1609 USA The Roosters - All Of Our Days
|This is a very cool release on its own, and the bonus is a pair of surf instros. The Roosters grew out of The Avengers and The Five More. Tom Stanton plays drums on one, and the other is an unreleased gem.|
Picks: Avalanche, Cool it
Track by Track Review
Is this one of the versions of the Handful of Fives et al with Skip and Terry Hand who were also part of the Eddie and the Showmen legacy? Doesn't matter I guess. It's fast, furious, pure surf madness, with a wailin' sax in a few verses under the lead guitar. Great picking and fiery attack.
"Cool it" is a raucous instro with sax and guitar trading off - occasionally reminding me of The Crossfires. Glissandos, strong drums, and spunk. This is gutty and very cool.
