THE VENTURES - 'Ginza Lights' (Liberty LBY 1323) June 1966
According to the liners on the back of The Ventures LP 'Go With The Ventures', they're described as the world's number one instrumental group. I'm not gonna argue with that, I don't know enough about instumental groups to have an opinion.
This 1966 album has it's moments and I especially like The Ventures original 'Ginza Lights' which sounds like a surfedelic spy theme tune played on those Mosrite guitars The Ventures were famous for.
One look at the credits on the back cover confirms that Bruce Botnick performed engineering duties. He was of course The Doors and Love's engineer. He also co-produced 'Forever Changes' with Arthur Lee.
