The Roosters - All Of Our Daysdotdotdotdot
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

Avalanche dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

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 dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

"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.
