Go with the Ventures!/Batman Theme

Editorial Reviews

One Way reissued two albums the Ventures cut in 1966, Go with the Ventures and The Batman Theme, on a single disc in 1996.

One Way could have spent a little more time on the packaging and remastering this set, but the end product remains worthwhile for the dedicated.
