Track by Track Review

Gunnamatta dotdotdotdot
Spaghetti Surf (Instrumental)

Spyish twang with a western melody and exotic percussion. "Gunnamatta" is a splendid track with serious charm and a sadly romantic sound. Its warmth and richness deliver the goods. This is a dramatic and compelling track.

Rich tremolo presents an eerie scene before the galloping rhythm takes command. "Firefly" has a decidedly western desert sound round rich tone. The twang and percussion are superb.
