These are re-recordings of classic Ventures songs that the band tracked for Pat Boone’s Gold label in the year 2000 to celebrate their 40-year anniversary. Sure, fans of vintage vinyl could argue that Gold doesn’t sound exactly like the original recordings, but fans of the Ventures could also argue that it’s great to hear these guys go at it four decades later with the same gusto that they first cut to vinyl. Founding member Nokie Edwards plays on 14 tunes, sounding like he never left the band back in 1984. “Walk Don’t Run” opens with a new attack on the classic resonance of timeless sounding Fender guitars played through oceans of reverb and tremolo. It’s not until the sci-fi freak-outs in “Telstar” that things start sounding a bit anachronistic where 21st-century production goes head-to-head with 20th-century tones. But “Yellow Jacket” still buzzes and stings like it did in 1962, while “Wipe Out” was played so true to form with Leon Taylor filling in on drums for his late father Mel sounding like his father’s rhythmic talent was inherited.
