|Here are three demos from one of the great writers and guitarists of the new surf era, Rick Escobar (ex-Woodies). "Dwight's Point" is particularly cool, and "Get Smart" is just too fun.|
Picks: La Paloma, Get Smart, Dwight's Point
Track by Track Review
27 seconds of lovely guitar solo playing a superb rendering of the melody line from "La Paloma." Pure pleasure.
Irving Szathmary theme for the TV show with the goofy Maxwell Smart and his amply intriguing cohort Agent 99 is all surfed and spied in serious reverb art style. Still goofy, but also really cool!
"Dwight's Point" is a delightful melody that's based on dips and circulating riffs that create a slightly country surf afternoon image that's quite inviting. It's quite original and friendly in an immediately familiar sort of way. Exceptionally good guitaristry and writing.
