We used specific tracks on vinyl in the 60's for a school play. They were from the vents in space....

A fine amd colorful cross section of tunes that express a generation of progress and energy.
By terry (Gilman, Illinois, USA)
Ventures in Space is the absolute best Ventures album! The fact that all the "sound effects" are musically produced and not synthesized is a triumph for their muscianship. I can't believe that I was able to find it as I loved it when I was a child.

|Hard To Find 45's on CD, Vol. 7: More 60's Classics CD (2001)
Ventures Play Telstar -- The Lonely Bull and Others /(The) Ventures in Space buy CD music Here's a real grab bag of Top 40 hits from 1960 to 1966, some of them indeed very hard to find on CD or even hear on the radio. Some of them are not really not that hard to find on CD, though this disc (like every one in this series) takes pains to present original 45 RPM single versions, often in stereo. It leans toward the innocuous pop side of pop/rock, though within that framework there's a lot of variety and a good amount of quality: slightly soul-influenced pop (Gene McDaniels' "A Hundred Pounds of Clay"), poppy, late doo wop (the Velvets' "Tonight [Could Be the Night]," the Chimes' "Once in a While"), British Invasion pop (Billy J. Kramer & the Dakotas' "Bad to Me," the Honeycombs' "Have I the Right," the Seekers' "I'll Never Find Another You," Cilla Black's "You're My World"), celebrity teen idols (Patty Duke's "Don't Just Stand There"), weird foreign one-shots (Kyu Sakamoto's "Sukiyaki"), jazz soul-pop (Nancy Wilson's "[You Don't Know] How Glad I Am"), and more. The dedicated collector might be interested in the items that are really the hardest to find or even heard on oldies radio, despite having been hit records. Those would include Nathaniel Mayer's relatively gutsy 1962 R&B-pop hit "Village of Love"; Mike Clifford's almost unbearably white-bread 1962 ballad "Close to Cathy"; Danny Williams' anodyne "White on White," which somehow made the Top Ten in early 1964 in the midst of the early British Invasion; and Joey Powers' 1963 Top Ten hit "Midnight Mary," a super-light, acoustic-flavored pop/rocker. The best of the obscurities is Verdelle Smith's 1966 number 38 hit "Tar and Cement," which sounds a little like an American pop-country spin on Dusty Springfield and was done (as "La Maison Ou J'ai Grandi") in the mid-'60s by French star Françoise Hardy. ~ Richie Unterberger

|All Time Greatest Hits CD (1995)
Ventures Play Telstar -- The Lonely Bull and Others /(The) Ventures in Space album for sale CEMA Special Markets' Play the Hits is different than the similarly titled Only the Hits in one key way -- it actually has the Ventures' hit singles! Of course, Play the Hits has a title that suggests it might be a collection of the Ventures playing other people's songs -- which is what Only the Hits was, and that had a title that suggested it was a straight hits collection. Budget-line discs always get confusing like this. Anyway, Play the Hits is a good collection, containing all of the basics -- "Walk, Don't Run," "Blue Moon," "Lolita Ya-Ya," "Secret Agent Man," "Slaughter on Tenth Avenue," and "Hawaii Five-O" -- which is enough to make it a very worthwhile budget-line disc. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Featuring these top selling hits, 'Walk-Don't Run', 'Hawaii Five-O' and 'Perfidia' along with 9 other surf greats. Collectables. 2003.
Composed and conducted by Quincy Jones.
|Walk Don't Run : The Best of the Ventures CD (1990)
Ventures Play Telstar -- The Lonely Bull and Others /(The) Ventures in Space CD music Digitally remastered by Larry Walsh (February 1990, Capitol Recording Studios).
A nicely chosen best-of by the most popular instrumental rock band in the world, ranging (chronologically) from their first big American hit, 1959's "Walk Don't Run," to their last, 1969's "Hawaii Five-O." Other signature tunes here are the Latin-tinged "Perfidia," and the surf classic "Ram-Bunk-Shush," but the best track is a stomping "Slaughter on Tenth Avenue," from their great LIVE IN JAPAN album. You also get some ace period covers--an appropriately arch version of the "Lolita Ya-Ya" and a fierce and fiery take on "Secret Agent Man," which actually works better as an instrumental.

Recorded between 1981 and 2000. Includes liner notes by Jim Pewter.
Varese Sarabande has outdone itself with this marvelous package of surf instrumentals by the Ventures, containing 18 tracks that surely fit into the "space age bachelor pad" category of fun sounds with the superb playing that listeners expect from the legendary group. "Out of Limits" is short and sweet at 1:59 -- but full of vibrant '60s energy and distinctive guitar. From the "Hawaii Five-O" theme to the tension of "Lonely Surfer," this is a really superb lineup of songs, a nice companion disc to the In Search of Eddie Riff masterpiece by Roxy Music's Andy Mackay. Sure, fans of the Ventures have heard it all, but for those outside of the cult who want a great slice of work from a veteran group with an enormous catalog, this collection is it. It comes with a detailed eight-page booklet with Jim Pewter liner notes and images of bathing suits in front of the waves. What more could one ask for? Musical ramblings like "Baja" are most welcome, and as interesting as "Slaughter on Tenth Avenue" and the very cool rendition of "Wipe Out." It's not the Surfaris "Wipe Out," mind you; it's more laid-back and party-sounding -- as if the band were playing in the back of a Saturday night dancehall on some obscure lake in the forest, bringing the waves and the sun to those in the dark. There's a lot of depth to this disc, which you will definitely want to explore (and try to imitate in your garage with your Fender amp) and play over and over again. ~ Joe Viglione

|Ventures Play the Greatest Instrumental Hits CD (2002)
Ventures Play Telstar -- The Lonely Bull and Others /(The) Ventures in Space songs Recorded between 1996 and 2000 (although the liner notes refer to the version of "Hawaii Five-O" having been started in the mid-'80s), this set is largely devoted to covers of instrumental hits of the late '50s and early '60s, although remakes of the Ventures' own two biggest hits ("Walk, Don't Run" and "Hawaii Five-O") are present. Otherwise, the track list looks a little like a mix tape of some of the biggest instrumental songs from the time when the Ventures were at their peak: "Rebel Rouser," "Apache," "Peter Gunn," "Bongo Rock," "Honky Tonk," "Sleep Walk," "Tequila," "Green Onions," "James Bond Theme," "Secret Agent Man." Original members Bob Bogle and Don Wilson are still on hand, though original guitarist Nokie Edwards is only credited as a "guest" artist, and the late Mel Taylor is replaced by his son Leon Taylor on some tracks (the precise ones aren't specified). This has all the hallmarks of being an uninspired rehash of a band's glory days, but it actually sounds surprisingly good, though certainly no significant ground is broken and you'd be better off with collections of the original recordings (whether by the Ventures or others). There's no concession to inappropriate modernized production -- it sounds like the Ventures, the lean, hungry, reverbed guitar sound to the forefront. These are pretty energetic and capable renditions, though perhaps the only mild surprise in the track selection is "Tall Cool One" by the Wailers (which only just made the Top Forty in 1959), the Northwest group that helped inspire the Ventures when they began. ~ Richie Unterberger
