Track by Track Review
This rare Dot 45 opens with a grouchy call to goochy bamba with gutty guitar and jungle drums. It's quite primitive, but still shows off Richie Podolor's inventive prowess. Great drums and surf chords.
"A Touch Of Blue" is a very pretty and sad slow dance number with a romantic flow. On the unusual side, and pretty low energy. The chords are island gorgeous.
