I went to school with a guy named "Glen Garrison" , remember seeing this record 25 years ago in a thrift store & thinking thats my friend's theme song . Never did buy the record though. Finally found a copy. Anyway its a C&W song with fuzztone !

Best Ventures Track the Ventures Never Did !!


Got This email from Kurt L from NY .
Anyway if there's something you'd like to post here let me know.
Here's his email-
This track is supposed to be from an Alvino Rey session for Somerset's "The Guitar and It's Family Around The World" LP (SF-27000), and has appeared on numerous other Somerset budget LPs including "Here's Where It's At -- Beat '66 with The Haircuts and The Impossibles" (SF-27100). As far as I know, it's always entitled "Greenbeans" (a published arrangement of "Greensleeves" so that the owner of Somerset could make more money).
It could be a little faster, but I think it's one of the best Ventures tracks that The Ventures never did.

Calvin McElroy

Went to a show with Michael Rault playing & there was this other guy who looked like Napoleon Dynamite playing. Anyway was impressed with him recording a beat to a song by tapping his guitar , then looping trumpets etc. Sounded like a full band playing.
While the songs are'nt as cool recorded on cd as being live , here are a few for your listening pleasure
You Belong Here

Why Can't We Just Get Along

Here's some tunes by a couple of promising young groups that have broken up. They will be sadly missed. I'm still pissed at The Freak Outs for breaking up. You could have had them eating out of the palms of your hands kids !
Same thing for the Synthetics, A fantastic live band. The recordings don't do them any justice though.
