Picks: I'll Be On My Way, From A Window, No Milk Today, Words, I'm A Fool
Track by Track Review
Swimming whammy warmness permeates this soft lush classic. "I'll Be On My Way" shimmers with vibrato rhythm guitar and a very pleasurable sound.
Billy J. Kramer and the Dakotas' "From A Window" somehow gains enhanced credibility in this instro setting. Flowing guitar with a little sting and a hint of Shadowmania keeps it in the British Isles.
Shig brought Herman's Hermits' "No Milk Today" to the Shi-tones. This is a very smooth version, with rich warm guitar tone and Euro whammy action.
The Beatles' "Words" displays its melody power in this delicate portrayal. very smooth.
"I'm A Fool" is the bounciest track here, with damped chop rhythm and catchy riffs.
