CD Reviews

Supplement to the "Legendary masters series"
Long Distance Voyager | Hong Kong, China | 12/01/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Originally an EMI Music Australasia release in 1992, this CD included many great tunes that are not available from EMI-USA's "Legendary masters series - Walk don't run -- The best of the ventures". Including three Ventures' Classic "Walk don't run", "Perfidia" and "Hawaii Five-O" and its own rendition of "La Bamba" and "Let's go", this CD comprised mainly of remakes of instrumental hits made famous by other artists, including Bill Dogget's "Honky tonk", Bill Justis' "Raunchy", Tornadoes' "Telstar", Surfaris' "Wipeout", The Champs' "Tequila", The Strings-a-longs' "Wheels", Santo and Johnny's "Sleep walk", Chantay's "Pipeline", Duane Eddy's "Rebel 'Rouser", Booker T & the MGs' "Green Onion" and the Marketts' "Out of limits". Ventures added special ingredients to these songs and created a new image to them, especially the recording sound, which is much better than most of the originals. Among these remakes, "Pipeline", "Wipe Out" and "Telstar" stand out as best examples showing that the cover versions by Ventures are much better than the originals.
