Entitled "Walk Don't Run", this new double cd set of the ventures released by the one-day music label contains I believe, all or most of the songs from the group's first four albums. It contains 50 tracks in all, of original studio recordings from 1960 - 1962 with one track "Cookies and Coke" which is mentioned in the interesting sleeve notes as being 1958.
The only thing that might be confusing to new people interested in the ventures is that "Walk Don't Run" was also the title of their first album containing the shorter selection of tracks from that album and it has often been used in the title of other "best of ventures" cd collections containing their later music as well. So my advice is keep your eyes peeled for the right cd set!
The sound quality, packaging and price of this set were excellent. I'm a big fan of early 60s music and I've never seen a better compilation of early ventures songs than this. Overall, this cd set can't be beat!
