The Wild Roses

“The Wild Roses” is a track from the Shadows 1967 album “From Hank, Bruce, Brian and John”. It is a very pleasant tune credited to S. Ichikawa..about whom I could find no information. A number of other songs on the LP have a Japanese connection.

It’s interesting to hear how this track shows that their approach remained much the same as the beginning of the decade.

Mi Y’malel

“Mi Y’malel” (“Who can retell?”) is a popular Hanukkah song. The opening line, which literally means “Who can retell the mighty feats of Israel,” is a secular rewording of Psalms 106:2, which reads “Who can retell the mighty feats of God.”

I have given it a surf-rock instrumental setting with a prominent baritone guitar.
