Jim Guittard’s Place

Review of “Busted In Bulgaria”

Posted in Music by guittard on September 18, 2008

“Gangster”-Got to put a Sitar, or a couple of droning Tambouras on this. 🙂

“Breaking the language barrier”-Cool; reminiscent of “Backstreet Girl”, especially Brian’s Accordian part!!

“Hoola Hoop Song”-I REALLY like this song! “Byrdsian” harmonies! I’m wanting to hear a Major 7th chord in the chorus somewhere…

“8A Class”-Almost a “Folkie Jan & Dean meets John Riley”. It’s also cool to hear you doing your job in class!!

“Be Real True”-Very “Beggars Banquet”!

“Babas On Their Bench”-REALLY like this too! I’d like to hear a Greek Bouzouki (Beatles-“Girl”) playing those guitar lines. 🙂

“I Wanna Go To The Moon”-Jim, is this open tuning??? If so, it’s VERY EFFECTIVE. Again, would love to hear Sitar here.

“Kakvo Pravish”-I like the ’50’s Sci-fi effects!!

“Listen to your voice”-More Sitar!!!

“Rico”- DAMN GOOD SONG. 🙂

“Pernik”-VERY NICE. Again; some Mandolin, or Greek Bouzouki, something like that.

“Stachkata”-Nice; didn’t light my fire, but good. 🙂

“Survival Mode”-Same as above, good lyrics though.

“This Is Random Song”-Is it “Only A Northern Song”??? 🙂 Jim; these are better lyrics here than you may think…

“What’s your role in life”-I think it’s a GOOD song that could be a GREAT song…

“Don’t Know Jack”-Love it! Dylanesque writing.

“Raga Train”-Again; GOOD song that needs SOMETHING to make it great. 🙂

“The Sun Shines Today”-Jim; THIS IS A HIT SONG!!! I’d love to get my hands on this, and do some arranging, etc.

Are you walking through dried leaves for that sound effect???
That really took me back to the mid & late ’60’s; walking through the Eucalyptus leaves in Burlingame/San Mateo.
