Biography

The Ventures are the most successful instrumental combo in rock and roll history. They also rank among its most prolific bands, too. They’re best remembered for a pair of Sixties smashes, “Walk – Don’t Run” and “Hawaii Five-O.” Yet their most impressive feat was charting 38 albums from 1960 to 1972.

3.0 out of 5 stars Typical Lame Curb Production September 1, 2007
Format:Audio CD
This is standard fare for the early Curb CDs - minimal number of selections [in this case 11], frugal liner notes [ten lines], no discography, and one selection [track 11] which does not fit the category of "hit" - either minor or great.

Considering that The Ventures had exactly 16 charted hits in North America (including two on the Adult Contemporary (AC) charts) between 1960 and 1974, how difficult would it have been to omit track 11 and add the following missing hits: [Theme From] Silver City [# 83 Hot 100 in September 1961]; The 2,000 Pound Bee (Part 2) [# 91 Hot 100 in January 1963]; Walk - Don't Run '64 [# 8 Hot 100 in August 1964 and a slightly different arrangement than their original 1960 hit]; Secret Agent Man [# 54 Hot 100 in March 1966]; Skylab (Passport To The Future) (# 38 AC in 1973); and Main Theme From "The Young And The Restless" (# 47 AC in 1974)?

As for the so-called liner notes, Don Ovens says "From [1960] through 1972, the group struck the best selling charts with 36 hit singles and 37 hit albums!" Now, maybe Mr. Ovens is referring to some obscure chart performances that few of us are aware of [Japan perhaps where they were wildly popular?], but I do know for certain that the Bible of the charts - Billboard - only credits them with 14 Hot 100 hits, one of which, Walk Don't Run, also crossed over to the R&B charts in 1960, and the above two AC hits. The other 22 of which Mr. Ovens speaks might have "bubbled under" on the Hot 100 - I don't know - but to boldly state that they had 36 is stretching things just a bit.
