    A cover of The Shadows' Man of Mystery (1960). It's one of their more 'uptempo' numbers and sounds very surfy and 60's! I would have liked to have put some go go dancers on the video but I couldn't find any around the house when I was recording :)

    Very nice! Our band does that song! It's fun to play, a cool number little-known in the States.

    Yeah it's a bit of shame they weren't as popular there. Another cool and similar band of the same era (besides the Ventures) was the Australian band the Atlantics - look up the song Bombora on Youtube. Iconic stuff.

    Just checked it out, thanks! I hadn't heard that before...old surf music keeps coming out of the woodwork!
