Dry Midwest Surf (Instrumental)
The Titans were a Midwest instro band, with a pretty dry sound. Not a surf band, but this is so cool, it doesn't matter. Only the reverb is missing to make it surf. Unlike Johnny and the Hurricanes, this is sans organ and shredz even harder!
The band's new lead guitarist Rick Colborn flies about the guitar at breakneck speed with incredible accuracy. This tune is pure surf except for the lack of reverb. Stellar, infectious, and entirely cool.
