Tele-Ventures: The Ventures Perform the Great TV Themes

by The Ventures



The Ventures recorded a lot of instrumental versions of TV themes in the 1960s and 1970s, whether it was actually used as the theme (as with their hit "Hawaii Five-O") or, as was usually the case, was just a cover...About half of the CD dates from 1976, and has discofied renditions of themes to the likes of Charlie's Angels and Starsky & Hutch. More in keeping with the classic lean Ventures sound are the 1960s cuts, which include versions of "Batman," "Secret Agent Man," "The Twilight Zone," and (maybe best of all) "The Man From U.N.C.L.E.."..It's mostly fan club members, for either the Ventures or the TV shows in question, who should feel compelled to investigate.
