artworkThis 5 song demo CD-R gives Shigemi Komiyama room to stretch out on all instruments with some of his favorite period radio hits. Lot's of fun, and perhaps the underpinnings of a new CD?

Track by Track Review


I'll Be On My Way dotdotdot
Rock (Instrumental)

Swimming whammy warmness permeates this soft lush classic. "I'll Be On My Way" shimmers with vibrato rhythm guitar and a very pleasurable sound.

From A Window dotdotdot
Rock (Instrumental)

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.

No Milk Today dotdotdot
Rock (Instrumental)

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.

Words dotdotdot
Rock (Instrumental)

The Beatles' "Words" displays its melody power in this delicate portrayal. very smooth.

I'm A Fool dotdotdot
Rock (Instrumental)

"I'm A Fool" is the bounciest track here, with damped chop rhythm and catchy riffs.
