Extended Play... Extended Play... : VENTURES : CD
The Californian rock instrumental heroes The Ventures genuinely deserve their legendary status. Although they were to go on to release 200 plus albums worldwide. In these early days of their British and European releases it was left to the 4 track EP to showcase the groups American hits on one piece of Vinyl with picture sleeves. Their first two UK hits 'Walk Don't Run' and Perfidia hit the pop charts top ten in September and December 1960. More hits followed in 1961, as did the EPs in those early years of the sixties. The Ventures constructed a powerful, compulsive sound, which not only became their trademark, but it was also echoed in the concurrent surfing scene style. 'Walk Don't Run' reached number 2 in the U.S. charts and a top ten placing in the U.K. It went on to sell over a million copies, as did their follow up 'Perfidia' . Their continued appeal lay in their ability to embrace contemporary fashion without straying too far from their hit formula. They also survived several personnel changes along the way.
