|The Wild Angels were a rock revival band with a fairly rootsy-rockabilly vocal sound and great piano, plus strong drums. You can think of them as early pub rockers. Amid the tracks is an interesting version of "Walk Don't Run."|

Track by Track Review
Opened with "Apache," this romps right into a fairly honest repro of The Ventures' 1960 version. Drums are up front, which was odd for 1972. A line form "Runaway" adds period nods to the track, as do a few gutty glissandos. Given it's date, this is quite nice.
