Extended Play CD
Californian rock 'n' roll instrumental heroes The Ventures genuinely deserve their legendary status.
Although they were to go on to release 200 plus albums worldwide, in the early days of their releases it was left to 4 track EPs 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 top ten in 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 USA and was a top ten hit in the UK.
It went on to sell over a million copies, as did the follow up Perfidia.
