artworkThis is quite a surprise. A pair of surf classics turned into suave power loungers. Very original and fun. I suppose a whole CD will follow. This Belgian release

Theme From Hawaii Five-O dotdotdot
Exotic TV Rock (Instrumental)

In many ways, it is true to the Ventures hit. In others, it's more true to the TV show, and with the bongos added, it becomes a suave lounge number with plenty of spit and vinegar. Horns and all, it oozes TV theme.

A Run For Live dotdotdotdot
TV Lounge Surf (Instrumental)

Dick Dale and his Del-tones "A Run For Life" (here titled "A Run For Live" maybe due to translation issues) sports double picked surf guitar, even more big production than Dick's single, and with the use on bongos to augment the percussion, it launched right into a lounge near you. Extra crispy, hold the mayo.
