Overview

The Ventures' 2002 release Play the Greatest Instrumental Hits of All Time was a competent effort, and the same could be said of its sequel, Play the Greatest Instrumental Hits of All Time, Vol. 2. Once again all tracks were cut between 1996-2000 by a lineup featuring original members Bob Bogle and Don Wilson, as well as Nokie Edwards on some lead guitar (though evidently not as a full member, since he's credited as one of the "guest artists"). And again the song list leans on well-known instrumental rock hits of the late '50s and early '60s by Duane Eddy, Sandy Nelson, Johnny & the Hurricanes, the Fireballs, the Tornados, and the like. A few surprises, if mild ones, are on hand in covers of the obscure "Percolator" (originally an LP track by Earl Palmer) and, more particularly, "Cry for a Shadow," the George Harrison-John Lennon instrumental recorded by the Beatles back in 1961. Usually the arrangements stick to the straight-ahead guitar sound for which the Ventures are known.
