Track by Track Review
The Strangers tracks were mostly riff rockers, sometimes more interesting than others. "Boogie Man" has a tasteful fifties riff and unique drum work in the break. This could easily be morphed into a surf instro with a little reverb and a change of the beat.
This is a reasonable treatment of the "Red River Valley." In many ways, it is similar to many Belairs arrangements of traditional tunes. Tasty sax, twangy low-E guitar rhythm, and that same innocence.
