The Ventures 2 Albums on 1 CD “Play the Carpenters” / “The Jim Croce Songbook”


Throughout their long career, The Ventures evolved a formula that was really quite simple; translate the current musical trend to their own masterful instrumental interpretations. On these two projects we hear the more mellow tones of those famous guitars as they gently rock some of the best and biggest songs of our time. The wonderfully romantic songs made famous by The Carpenters, and the hits of the very clever Folk Rock poet Jim Croce blend perfectly with the masterful touch of The Ventures.
