SURFING, the the instrumental surf-rock icons the Ventures, contains the tracks "Pipeline," "Ten Over," and "Heavies," among others.
The reissue comes with remastered sound.
Surprisingly enough, this turns out to be a nice overview of the group's Dolton sides, including original versions of "Walk Don't Run," "Perfidia," "Hawaii Five-O," and "Walk Don't Run '64." The rest of the disc -- some 30 tracks in all -- mixes newer live tracks with vintage studio offerings. Although not strictly vintage material, the band still comes across on this 1995 outing with plenty of gas left in the tank, making this a nice set for fans of the band. ~ Cub Koda
