"Yes, I will say up front I am a big Ventures fan. I have been for about 30 years. I thought I'd heard it all from the Ventures then I listened to this beautiful CD. It's not the hard driving faster beat style of material you are used to hearing from the Ventures. It's more relaxed, perfect for sitting back, puttin your feet up, and just listening kinda music. You can just dream along with songs like Sentimental Guitar, Hokkaido Skies and Road to Somewhere, or if you are looking for melodic, but more aggressive fare you have Tokyo Nights, Max a Go Go or Aozora-No-Arukagiri. The CD finishes with one of my favorites, a quirky little number called Bombay Duck one of those great little gems the Ventures are famous for doing. If you are a Ventures fan than this is a must have for your collection. This is a side of the Ventures you just do not get listening to their American music. If you are into instrumental music this is just a great CD for listening to. Enjoy!"
