Great, Two Albums!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

"THE VENTURES A GO GO:This album by the Ventures is one of their albums that had no hit singles on it, but had that special spark; like Telstar, and
Ventures In Space. This album starts off with an instrumental version of The Rolling Stones' Satisfaction. A very difficult song to do instrumentally, but with a few changes in the melody, rythmic wise, they pull it off. Then the album goes into an original which is very good. Another Highlight is Drums A Go Go. Mel's hot drumming is the best part of this number. The Swingin' Creeper, is also very good. La Bamba, Wolly Bolly, and I Like It Like That, are just ok, they don't live up to the ones I mentioned above. One more tune that shines here is Whittier Blvd.
This album as a whole is tremendous. Picking out songs individually; I might not think so much of it.

FABULOUS VENTURES:This is one of The Ventures' most famous albums. In a legue of its own, riding high with Telstar, Ventures In SPace,. Hawaii Five o, and Walk Dont Run Vol. 2 in popularity. Perhaps the most well known song on this album is Journey To The Stars, written by a member of The T-Bones, an underground recording group for Liberty Records. Don Wilson, on the Live In Japan 65' album says, before they play this number on the album that is was from The Ventures In Space Album. It curtainly sounds like a "space" tune, just the name of it alone. Who knows if he made a mistake or the song simply got moved to this album. Pink Panther Theme is also a highlight here.
Go-go with the Ventures!

"Party music! This CD, especially guitars a-go-go, makes me want to dance. Growing up, I used to play this and just go crazy dancing. I left the first CD at my brother's, who also knows the songs, and it cracked en route back to me. I'm now purchasing my second because it's just that good. If you like Offspring, you'll like this!"
