Ventures a Go-Go-Where the Action Is!


This CD features two Ventures albums from late 1965/early 1966.
The Ventures a Go-Go was the Ventures 20th album. It was released to capitalize on the popularity of go-go dancing. It features seven cover versions of recent hits, and five original tunes. The album has a lot of organ on it. I was surprised that the vocal lines in “Satisfaction” were played by an organ, instead of a guitar like they normally do when they cover a song with lyrics. Out of the original tunes, the great “The Swingin’ Creeper” is a favorite among Ventures fans, although “A Go-Go Dancer” is pretty terrific, too. The rest of the album is also solid.
