I would love to hear the music behind Continuous Eternal. The poem is great but the track deserves a listen in itself. I would also love to hear the Wrecking Crew Ginny On My Mind.

What about copyright? It is such an obvious use of the original tune.

I remember hearing this song years ago and knew right away that the melody was Horace the swinging school bus driver. Actually, I think I even own this 45 with the picture sleeve, but couldnít find it after a long search. I was curious about the song writing credits and to my surprise, with the help of the internet, the credit went to Dickerson, lead singer and guitarist. I like the Untamed Youth a lot and have been listening to them since the early Ď90ís. Deke Dickerson is a phenomenal guitar player and used a Fender Jaguar that was popular with early surf groups. Carl Wilson played one on the first 3 or 4 Beach Boy albums. The Untamed Youth also covered J&Dís Surfiní Hearse from the Drag City album. I have no idea why Dickerson is the only name listed on this 45. He only changed the lyrics. The music wasnít his. In the mean time, Iím going to try and track down the 45. Curious to see what the writers credit says.

Also been listening to Continuous Eternal (A Prose Poem) and wondered if this track would have been accepted on a jan berry release, its great to hear how the poem and the music go well together, I wonder if theres track jan was working on,or just the score, or is this the only version out there.

There are so many. Three Window, Hot Stocker definitely - I love Waimea Bay, I Gotta Drive, Horace, A Surfer's Dream. All hallmarked by fantastic production and arrangements.
