The Ventures 2 Albums on 1 CD “Best of Pops Sound” / “Go With The Ventures”
The Ventures’ concept for recording albums was established early on in their career; half a dozen fresh instrumental interpretations of vocal and instrumental hits of the day, plus six originals.
In Japan, The Ventures’ popularity was not unlike Beatlemania; they recorded over three dozen albums of Japanese hits, or “Pops” as they’re called.
Originally released Stateside in 1966, “Go” was The Ventures’ 23rd album. It enjoyed 25 weeks on the charts, peaking at No. 39 on the U.S. Top 100.
