*This collection was a conscious attempt to side-step my usual surf instrumental preferences and focus on non-vocal songs of other genres. NOT that it's a highly diverse foray, mind you! I never operate too far off from the greasy-kids stuff aesthetic.
*One deviation from the overall guideline is the inclusion of the Pell Mell track (heard in episode re-caps of HBO's 'Six Feet Under') whose reverb and echo heavy track easily falls within 'surf' categorization. What can I say- I just HAD to have it onboard cause it so haunted my sense of self-indulgence!

This is a really marvelous piece of work. I like Zep stomping into a Few Dollars More. Well, I like it all.
