    The Ventures
    Beach Party CD

    With 100 million records sold, the Ventures are easily the most commercially successful instrumental group of all time.
    They are an institution in both the USA and Japan, and if their popularity in the UK is more modest, this is only because Britain had its own generation of guitar combos in the Shadows and The Tornados.
    The song that started the phenomenon was their arrangement of Walk Don't Run.
    The hit brought the Ventures to national prominence and began a career of more than five decades.
    Founded in Tacoma, Washington in 1958, the Ventures made a significant contribution to the surf music scene which unfolded between 1961 and '63.
    The 1962 album Beach Party is undoubtedly one of the finest and most coherent of all original Ventures concept albums and is the centrepiece of this anthology of their early years.
    This edition comprises selections from each of their first nine albums and some rare single-only releases.
