Track by Track Review
While the US was treated to Jorgen Ingmann's superior version of this Jerry Lordan classic, and then later Sonny James' vocal rendition, Europe was bathed in the Shadows rendition. Different, and much less delicate than Lordan's version, and missing the fingered string swipe arrows entirely.
Military Rock (Instrumental)
Excellent military trumpet based rock. It doesn't have the power or charm of Johnny & the Hurricanes' "Reveille Rock," but it is very cool. Rhythmic and playful.
Intense sounding lead and a simple progression. It's nice enough, but so what. OK, so I enjoy it. It's just not very intriguing.
Euro Spaghetti Western (Instrumental)
Spaghetti Western-esq tune with a cool melody and a gentle energy.
