CD Reviews
Alive Five-0 Greatest Hits Live
Review by Gary Hill
Jimi Hendrix may have said, "May you never hear surf music again," but he wasn't really trashing on the musical style. He and a whole host of guitarists were actually influenced by the musical style.
Beach Party
Review by Gary Hill
I’ve been a fan of this band since I was a little kid. I can remember buying cassette tapes and vinyl of theirs whenever I’d find it at garage sales.

Walk Don’t Run
Review by Gary Hill
I’ve always been a big fan of The Ventures. By “always” I mean, since I was a little kid.

Various Artists - The Coolest Christmas
Review by Gary Hill
This disc, as many various artists compilations, is a mixed bag. Some of the cuts here are very good, while others are forgettable, and many fall somewhere in between.
