CD Reviews

The Ventures never sounded better!
A. J., Lawrence | Calgary, Alberta Canada | 11/05/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"What an incredible find these Ventures reissues are! As a kid I always loved the group, but tended to buy only their singles. Now I can also enjoy the superb sounds of such classics as "Trambone" and "Meet Mr. Callaghan" from "Another Smash"and "Bluer Than Blue" from "The Colourful Ventures" as well. The guy who wrote the first review either never heard the originals or somehow got the group mixed up with somebody else! This disc has magnificent sound, and the tracks are all original."
These are the original recordings. NOT MONO

"I have both the original stereo and mono lps. And yes, there's a difference in the lead guitar track in "Blue Moon" on Colorful Ventures. But that's the way the Stereo version was originally released. The people complaining remember the mono version. These albums were recorded great, especially for 1961. And it really shows on these cds. The godfathers of modern guitar shine. And its all original. Enjoy"
Big Disappointment!

"I was expecting a CD version of the original Dolton recordings. I was very disappointed that this was an obvious re-recording without any of the energy and drive of the original records. Since when did violins belong in a Ventures recording? The packaging lets you believe that this would be the original tracks. Don't make the same mistake."
