The Ventures Hawaii Five-O 180g LP (Clear Vinyl)
High Definition 180g Clear Translucent Vinyl Sourced From Original Dolton & Liberty Records' Reels!
If ever there was a “band that launched a thousand bands,” it would be the
Ventures. Founded in Tacoma, Washington 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. Long may they rock!
