|The Smarties were a West German band from before the wall fell. They were skate punks with an insane drive. Included on this LP is damn fine cover of "(Ghost) Riders In the Sky."|
Track by Track Review
Yikes! Big, fast, pumped up slammin' version of the Ramrods' "(Ghost) Riders In The Sky" (Stan Jones) classic. Aside from the raucous rockabilly ethics and the punk treatment, the "lonesome cowboy" shouts and hollers are really cool. Among the best covers of this tune.
