Product Description


If ever there was a band that launched a thousand bands, it would be the Ventures. Founded in Tacoma, Washington in 1958, their guitar-based instrumental sound would prove hugely influential, inspiring countless followers to pick up a guitar, bass or set of drumsticks and try to emulate their heroes. As these musical neophytes would soon learn, it wasn t as easy as it initially appeared. The Ventures were masters of tone and technique, deftly arranging their instruments in a seamless approach that was instantly recognizable. Because they were an instrumental group, their songs needed no translation, which resulted in a huge worldwide following. While many rock bands have claimed to be big in Japan over the years, the Ventures were the country s first rock superstars and they maintain a devoted worldwide following to this day. With over 100 million records sold, they are the best-selling instrumental group of all time.

Sundazed is proud to rightfully address the magnificent Ventures catalog each title has been sourced from the original Dolton and Liberty Records reels and painstakingly mastered to sound and feel like they were originally intended. Along with precise artwork restoration on each vinyl LP title, these new Sundazed editions stand as the definitive re-releases of these monumentally important albums. Long may they rock! --Sundazed Music

Format: MP3 Music
In 1961, the Ventures included Bob Bogle (bass guitar), Nokie Edwards (lead guitar), Don Wilson (rhythm guitar), and Howie Johnson (drums). Their fourth album, "The Colorful Ventures," was released in October of 1961. It was their first album with a theme, with every song having a color in the title. Although it didn't generate a hit single, it's a solid album from start to finish. Highlights include their versions of "Blue Moon," "Blue Skies," "Greenfields," and the rocking "Red Top." Original instrumentals include "Yellow Jacket" (written by Bob Bogle, Nokie Edwards, and Don Wilson), and "Orange Fire" (written by Nokie Edwards). The closing song, "Silver City," features brass, and could have been used as the theme song for a Western. What makes this album even more impressive is the fact that it was their fourth album released in less than 12 months, after "Walk, Don't Run" (1960), "The Ventures" (1961), and "Another Smash!!!" (1961).
