Shadowymen On A Shadowy Planet Tribute
have to admit, some tributes are hit or miss -- you may like some
tracks, but some of the covers may sound flat or uninspired, falling
short of originals' level of quality -- BUT NOT SO HERE. With this
release, the opposite is true. The songs take a new life of their own
and the end result is a genuine treasure. I've bought my share of instro
tributes, but this one is better than all. The reason? I have to
guess that it's got a lot to do with The Shadowy Men's status as one of
the forefathers of the third wave of Surf Instro, and being a seminal
band in both the US and Canada. Don't miss out on this one. A++ all the way.

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.
