    This was a gift for a family member. This musician was his favorite in his growing up years. I had spent days reviewing the various albums and the choosing was tough. Many times I thought I found the perfect one only to see another caught my eye.

    I was intrigued at how many albums the Ventures had made and their tunes so recognizable. Each one I played only brought back more memories and I was drawn to listen to more. The sounds came out clear and very fine. Barnes & Noble made it absolutely simple to make out the tunes and for me to see what to play. It didn't take much time either. All was left at your own, what to listen to and you make your selection all on your own. Nothing was taken from you no matter how much time you take. They do not sign you out. It was enjoyable.

    Opinion Of A Ventures Fan

    This is one of the best selection of the Golden Era of The Ventures! Here you can find tracks like Mr.Moto, Baja, Lonely Surfer, Bombara and Ninth Wave that are really the gems of their work, and one can not find on other Ventures compilations!

    Pass on this one...

    These are not the original recordings. Rather, they were recorded in sessions in the '90's. The enthusiasm of earlier recordings is absent here. They are just going throught the motions on these classics. Buy instead the originals by the Belairs, The Ventures, etc.
