When Johnny Comes Marching Home dotdotdotdot
Near Surf (Instrumental)

I can't count the number of times this has been covered by rock bands, from Duane Eddy and the Lancers, to this rousing rocker. Much tougher than most others, it's a honking sax fest with a really dirty rumble-on-the-docks feel. The quieted down slow fade out is quite dramatic.

Mark's Mood dotdotdotdot
Near Surf (Instrumental)

Ultra dirty, dangerous and almost middle eastern, this is a sultry number in the "Harlem Nocturne" mold with the feel of a harem. Yikes.
