  Phil Dirt - Reverb Central, Santa Cruz, CA - 11/21/01
"The Danny Morris Band - The Golden Prize "  3 Stars 

       Surf instros lay side by side with soft blues and roots music, and the combo works well. The Danny Morris Band has found a groove that transcends several genre boundaries in a natural and friendly way. An excellent album, especially the opening instro "Flight School." Picks: Arthur's Boogie, Flight School, I Only Have Eyes For You, Pipeline.

"Arthur's Boogie"  3 Stars  This classic boogie structure sways in a rockabilly vein with rich tome and lots of flair, plus the inserted glissandos give it a surfability.
(Cowboy Surf Boogie Instrumental)
"Baila Para Mi..."  3 Stars  This short acoustic Spanish guitar romp lasts but 18 seconds, but sets the scene for the vocal "You're Mine."
(Acoustic Guitar Instrumental)
"Flight School"  4 Stars  Big tribal drums and double picked mean surf guitar drive "Flight School" hard. Big and thundering, and very menacing, this track sports fine glissandos and great surf tone. Drama and surfisms abound in this fine track played out over a classic surf beat.
(Surf Instrumental)
"I Only Have Eyes For You"  4 Stars  This silky oldies gets the liquid instrumental treatment, and it sure takes to it well. Vibrato and reverb, silky notes, and lush sound. Gives me chills.
(Surf Instrumental)
"Our Moon"  3 Stars  "Our Moon" is a really soft and pleasant kinda song, in a soft jazz surf vein, and emoting romantic yearnings. Very nicely played.
(Surf Instrumental)
"Pipeline"  4 Stars  The Chantays' "Pipeline" is Munsters up, richened and glissando powered, with a more storm surf edge and darker feel. very big, and very cool.
(Surf Instrumental)
"Please Please Me"  3 Stars  The Beatles' "Please Please Me" actually works ok in a near surf instro format. The arrangement shows a lot of thought, and the overall feel is splashy warm.
(Near Surf Instrumental)
