"All the crocodile smiles/
of the jungle crowds excite me/ I could mirror every face/ like a vacuum"

From the LP "Tokyo-New York" 1973-"Monitor" words/music Alan Merrill

The effect that [Alan Merrill's] Double Shot Rocks has [is of] a summery breeze, a drifting daydream, an hour spent in the company of some of the most soulful, romantic and beautiful songs ever written; all delivered with such gentle honesty (and, occasionally, corking guitars) that, the moment it's over, you'll want to hear it all over again.
