Cheap Phil Across the Pond

“Cheap Phil Across the Pond” is an original instrumental intended to evoke the feel of an early 1960s Shadows album track used to “fill out” an album or serve as a “B-side”. Both the Ventures and Shadows discographies are full of tracks like this. I many, many cases, I actually prefer these tracks to the “featured” ones.

Dusty

“Dusty” is my tribute to Dusty Hill, who passed away on July 28, 2021. A founding member of that little old band from Texas, ZZ Top, Dusty Hill laid down a driving bottom end, locking down the rhythm with Frank Beard behind Billy Gibbons. Some people are not really replaceable.
