Synopsis

Amazon.com
In 1961, the Ventures tried to recapture the success of their breakthrough hit, "Walk--Don't Run." At a point when the "band" consisted of just guitarists Bob Bogle and Don Wilson (nonmembers Nokie Edwards and Howie Johnson are featured on bass and drums, respectively), the album's sound and feel--rock tunes drenched with string arrangements and slow country ballads--are very similar to the approach that made Duane Eddy a star. The standouts on this somewhat conservative outing are "Lullaby of the Leaves," Floyd Cramer's "Last Date" and the Stringalongs' "Wheels." --Dave Provost

CD Reviews

"The Ventures", their second album, was their best.
02/16/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is great music to listen to in the car with the top down.The Ventures started out using Fender guitars, and produced a more smooth sound than their later hits with Mosrite guitars."Peridia" is a sentimental favorite.Highly recommended."
Another Smash is "The Smash" indeed.

"The Ventures at their best - this album has always been my absolute favourite by the group and now even more so. The digital transfer made it even better, and the strange thing is that the music on this particular CD doesn't feel as many other "oldies" do, that is somewhat "aged". If you like instrumentals,then this one is a must for you."
Captures the innocence ot the era-by far their best album!

"The sweet sounds of the twangy fenders reverberate through the years since the original recording. Cut after cut brings back a time when rock and roll was simple and uncomplicated. This light but determined effort is, in my humble opinion, their best all around album."
