Track by Track Review
Hot Rod Surf (Instrumental)
This track rules! It's hot, "Pipeline" like, and fiery. It may be a bit obscure, but it's a great track! "Road Runnah" ended up on the London Records release of the Pyramids' album. It does not appear on the original Best Records release, and bears no similarity in playing or style to the Pyramids. OK, so that's not a slam, just a clarification.
This is the utterly infectious "Pipeline"-esq flip to the Road Runners's "Road Runnah" single, which also appears credited to the Pyramids on the London version of their LP, as well as the Sundazed CD. Flying glissandos, great double picking, and very cool riffs.
