Picks: Ski Storm - Part I, Ski Storm - Part II
Track by Track Review
The Snow Men cut this single on for Kim Fowley who licensed it out to Challenge in 1963. "Ski Storm - Part I" is rhythmic and poundy, with a bitchin' riff and great energy. The drums rock, the piano is ultra cool, and the riff, while straight forward and simple, is very effective.
"Ski Storm - Part II" was the same track as "Ski Storm", but without the wind noise overdubbed. It was also called "Snow Storm." Much stronger this way.
