Track by Track Review
"Windsurfing" is pure surf with an organ lead played by Papa Don himself, one time member of the Berzerkers. The guitar work is from Geoff Stitch (the Reverbs). It's a rhythmic infectious little thing that hearkens to surfing the carousel the beach. It's light and fluffy, chunky and very happy. I usually stay clear of organ leads in surf, but this is just too fun. The surf guitar makes this really shine. "Windsurfing" is like the rhythm track to the vocal version, which is way less surfy.
