Zorba and the Greeks - Memories Of You c/w Shockwavedotdotdotdot
artworkRoseville, Oregon's Zorba and the Greeks cut but one single. How they got all the way down to Leo De Gar Kulka's Golden State Recorders in San Francisco is a mystery. The a-side is a very pedestrian vocal called "Memories Of You," but the a-side has become something of a legend.

Surf (Instrumental)

This is a cool tune. The organ comes in notably late in it's first note, but the extended reverb kicks are too cool, and the reverb lead is quite nice. The melody is friendly and fun. This tune is infectious and seems to stay with you. It stands up to multiple listenings. The label was Golden State Recorders, a San Francisco based label run by the legendary Leo de gar Kulka. I don't know if they were locals or just came to the city to record.
