Slaughter On Tenth Avenue
Mark Brodie & the Beaver Patrol contribute a rousing cover of "Slaughter On Tenth Avenue" as the Ventures arranged it, but with real energy and Marks signature clean sound. This is among the best arrangements of this tune I've heard.
Closing out side one is a great sounding track from my favorite Woodies, a song they've played for a few years now called "Little Dume" It's a wonderful tune, and this version is quite inviting, capturing your attention wholly while you play the disc.
The Hollywood Tornadoes first new track in thirty years closes out the set. It's called "Phantom," and it's from Phantom of the Opera. Still, it's an OK track.
