Surf (Instrumental)

This is one hot track, pumpin' the surf out with eighties big guitar edge. This track was "mixed" into stereo from a mono take by adding big hall slap-back echo in one channel. The playing is top drawer, the energy is mighty high, and the grab-you factor is at least eleven. Straight cover morphed into the crunch of the eighties.
