Walk Don't Run/Walk, Don't Run, Vol. 2

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
Four years and 15 albums separate the Ventures' first Top Ten hit, "Walk, Don't Run," from their second, "Walk, Don't Run '64," and the same length of time lapsed between their albums named after those similar tracks. By combining the two LPs on one CD 32 years later, One Way Records demonstrates how little had changed in the group's approach between 1960 and 1964. On both discs, they augmented the hit tune with a clutch of band originals in the familiar guitar instrumental style with their versions of familiar tunes. In one case, "Night Train," they even repeated them. Walk, Don't Run, Vol. 2, recorded at a time when Beatlemania was sweeping the world, starts out with...

All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
Four years and 15 albums separate the Ventures' first Top Ten hit, "Walk, Don't Run," from their second, "Walk, Don't Run '64," and the same length of time lapsed between their albums named after those similar tracks. By combining the two LPs on one CD 32 years later, One Way Records demonstrates how little had changed in the group's approach between 1960 and 1964. On both discs, they augmented the hit tune with a clutch of band originals in the familiar guitar instrumental style with their versions of familiar tunes. In one case, "Night Train," they even repeated them. Walk, Don't Run, Vol. 2, recorded at a time when Beatlemania was sweeping the world, starts out with the Ventures' take on "The House of the Rising Sun," rendered in an arrangement that recalls the Animals' hit version, complete with a dominant organ part, and the organ turns up on other cuts as well. Otherwise, little has changed in the world of the Ventures, who, four years on, are still stroking those reverb-heavy strings in their signature style. The One Way two-fer adds three bonus tracks. "Walk, Don't Run '77" shows that much changed in the ensuing 13 years, with the group's best-known tune transferred into the age of disco rhythms and "Theme from Shaft"-like wah-wah guitar, as well as wailing female vocals. Then there's a live medley of "Walk, Don't Run" with "Land of 1,000 Dances" that gives the song a Motown beat, and finally a trip back into the past with the 1962-1963 singles chart entry "The 2,000 Pound Bee." There are no liner notes except for the notes from the original LPs, which require a magnifying glass to determine that they're merely fluff.
