"I'm glad that One Way Records saw fit to release so many Ventures' albums on CD, but the 3 bonus tracks are the best songs on this compilation. "Theme From Shaft" is a good album by the Ventures, though hardly essential. It pretty much sticks to their formula of covering hits of the day, such as "Peace Train" and "Never My Love," as well as including some original instrumentals. "Rocky Road" is credited to the New Ventures. It's a disco album and, in my opinion, the worst album ever associated with the Ventures. I don't know how they were talked into doing this album, regardless of how popular disco was. I'm sure that this album alienated their older fans, and I doubt that many people looking for disco albums at that time would buy a record by the Ventures, old or new."
