The Ventures Wild Things on Limited Edition 180g Gold LP
Sourced from the Original Masters!
If ever there was a “band that launched a thousand bands,” it would be the Ventures.
Founded in Tacoma, WA in 1958, their guitar-based instrumental sound
would prove hugely influential, inspiring countless followers to pick up
a guitar, bass or set of drumsticks and try to emulate their heroes. As
these musical neophytes would soon learn, it wasn’t as easy as it
initially appeared. The Ventures were masters of tone and technique, deftly arranging their instruments in a seamless approach that was instantly recognizable.
Because they were an instrumental group, their songs needed no
translation, which resulted in a huge worldwide following. While many
rock bands have claimed to be “big in Japan” over the years, the Ventures
were the country’s first rock superstars and they maintain a devoted
worldwide following to this day. With over 100 million records sold,
they are the best-selling instrumental group of all time!
Sundazed is proud to rightfully address the magnificent Ventures’
catalog, each title has been sourced from the original Dolton and
Liberty Records’ reels and painstakingly mastered to sound and feel like
they were originally intended. Along with precise artwork restoration
on each vinyl LP title, these new Sundazed editions stand as the definitive re-releases of these monumentally important albums!
1966's Wild Things features instrumental covers of such classics as "Wild Thing," "Summer in the City" and "The Work Song," alongside Ventures originals like "Wild Trip," "Fuzzy and Wild," "Wildcat" and "How Now Wild Cow."
