Track by Track Review


El Toro dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Heavy double picked power surf, with major drive and low-E growl. Flying glissandoes, shouts of joy, and chants of "El Toro." This is one solid driving surf instro, very high on energy.

Ideal Surf Cafe dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

This fine tune is a little on the light side, with ringing Spanish chords evoking images of warm afternoon village squares. A very nice tune.

Twister dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Fast driving Link Wray inspired twango, thundering drums and bass, and jammin' fast paced guitar.

Cafe Americano dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

This slinky number rings with charm and a sense of a funky bar room. The quirky guitar lines and bass rumble offset one another well. It's like Duane Eddy in a cantina.
