artworkThis exact repro from Sundazed brings on the two instros in excellent sounding mono. It's much better sounding than the One Way double or the bootleg Surf CD. The artwork is reproduced, and is augmented with recording details.
Picks: Gridiron Goodie, The Last Walk

Track by Track Review


Gridiron Goodie dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

This badly titled track features a tight melody line, and a rhythmic backtrack, with fine playing by Podolor and the whole crew. The chords that open are rich, and the melody riff engaging. The break is a bit too jam-like for me, but otherwise it is a fine track.

The Last Walk dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

This very pretty track is just as sad and romantic as you might expect from the title. It has a country melody line, and a slow-dance backtrack with brilliant Ferrante and Teischer-like piano work. Quite a nice track.
