Track by Track Review


Windy and Warm dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

John D. Loudermilk's quirky and oh-so-cool "Windy and Warm" is reverbed and twanged with delight. This may be one of only two vintage surf covers, probably borrowed from Chet Atkins' cut. It's pure vintage surf sound is very cool.

Slumbertime dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

George Gershwin's moody "Summertime" is converted into a surf groove with great drums and lots of reverb. All the smoothness is replaced by raucous drums and twang.
