As John Blair says in the liner notes, the Torquays have a nice trad surf sound on this cover-laden album. Big twang and galloping rhythm guitar on Ghost Riders, authentic Shadows-y treatment of Wonderful Land and Peace Pipe, and clean south of the border surf sound on Latinia and Twilight At Trestles. And catchy melodies on originals like Tide Pool Q and Twitchin, both done in the "first-wave" surf flavor. Fun, energetic, and well-played.
