  1. I went bought a few of your recommendations and a few others from Amazon. One that I really like is “Guitar Noir” by the Aqua Velvets. Kind of laid back with modern production values. As the title suggests, it’s good to listen at night, maybe after a long day of “hanging 10” while sitting around the campfire.

  2. Thanks Jerry! What a great band – check out their song “Slow Dance With A Fast Girl” (fantastic!). I also downloaded their songs “Subterranea” and “Surf Nouveau”. Great additions to my mix!
