A combination of vintage instrumental rock sounds reminiscent of teenage dance parties and movies soundtracks from the 1950s and early 1960s. This is the sound of beach parties, camping in the desert, and good guys fighting bad guys. Slightly psych influenced tunz. Excellent.
Apologies in advance - this is a continuous file. I've been too busy with work and dealing with my wife's poor health to cut this into the single tracks. Figured you'd rather have it as is than not at all until I got to it. Thanks for your understanding. George
BIG SHOUT Out to 1.FCN for splitting file into single cuts. Thanks, buddy. Much appreciated.

In 1976, guitarists Paul A. MacDonnell and Robert Cross, bass player Trevor Darks and drummer/vocalist Dave Ball joined their considerable skills and produced one of the greatest but nearly forgotten heavy progressive projects, Automatic Fine Tuning. Doing an early form of neo-classical instrumental rock that predates the gothic harmonies and Paganini-love of Michael Schenker and Yngwie Malmsteen, the quartet boldly went where few rock ensembles had and recorded one brilliant album before disbanding. ” One of my TOP 10 of ALL TIME. 38 minutes of pure driving guitar, bass and drum. You will not be disappointed.
Happy Easter y'all!

Quantum Fantay are a Flemish space-rock band, who formed in the early/mid 00s, and in the last few years have released a number of albums (this is their fourth). All of them are excellent and these albums, along with their NEARFest performance, have propelled them into the international arena. Like their obvious heros, Gong and the Ozric Tentacles, there's lots of flute, keyboards, guitars and a supple rhythm section, but they've got a sound that also reflects the 00s and keeps it all new sounding. Great instro long form twang. This is direction I'm moving in this blog - let me know what you think.

“ Rare Surf, Vol. 6, contains almost no surf records at all, save for the lead track, Don Hinson's "Monster Surf Stomp." What it does contain, though, are a bunch of rare hot rod songs from the vault of Capitol Records and some pop stuff from the same era (early '60s). Most of the tracks are fairly generic, although if you're into the car-song genre, then this disc is a treasure trove. Highlights include a pair of barroom saxophone instrumentals ("Cruisin'," "When Johnny Comes Slidin' Home") by the Hollywood Vines and Sharon Marie's brisk run-through of the Gershwin chestnut "Summertime," which clocks in at well under two minutes in length. Also included is one of Brian Wilson's most elaborate early productions, "Guess I'm Dumb," sung by Glen Campbell. ”

Am a musicholic - I'm 52 -- I heard my first Ventures song in '66 and have been a fan of twang ever since. Of course all the other guitar gods were added over the years, along with a lot of other great music. I have been a DJ in my younger years on air -- WPFW and in clubs and currently produce a local television show about the performing arts.
