“Ventures In Space” by The Ventures - album review

features in: Album Chart of 1964Album Chart of the Decade: 1960s

TJR says

Incredibly, this is the 14th album already from the stylish and hard-working Tacoma, Washington quintet. As ever, it’s an all-instrumental affair, bar the occasional scream here and wordless vocal there. They continue with their conceptual album outlook, and the futuristic vibe of this one is delivered via a mixture of surf-rockers and sci-fi movie-theme stylizations, with a whole lot of “unworldly sounds” – all created with real musical instruments as the liner notes are keen to point out. The Ventures sound was oft-imitated – but these are the master craftsmen – and this album is a pleasure to the ears.
