WALK DON'T RUN- The Story Of The Ventures
« on: February 07, 2012, 08:56:42 am »
This is the ULTIMATE SOURCE on the career of The Ventures.   We're talkin' 386 pages here.   Penned by long standing fan Del Halterman, this represents the MOST DEFINITIVE log available for the most popular & biggest selling group in the history of recorded music.   

Collaborated on with both part founding member Bob Bogle & Don Wilson's mom Josie, no stone is left unturned.  Now in its second printing & including details & pics from their induction into the ROCK HALL OF FAME this is a MUST for all die-hard Ventures fans.   

Not sure if both editions are available.  Two different covers were used- originally COLORFUL VENTURES & more recently THE VENTURES!   I'll be back shortly with a couple links; one for placing orders & one for general discussion.

Del is now saying that only the second edition is available.   There were some key revisions throughout without sacrificing
any content & the book's overall size is somewhat smaller.   Just a tease here but under THE BLAZER PHOTO, it says 'from
construction workers to the rock 'n roll hall of fame.'    This is a NO BRAINER for any collection.

Agreed.
Every V fan should OWN a copy.
For the amount of time/effort spent on the project 30 bucks is a steel! ;D

Don Wilson suggested that line... From Construction workers to the R&R Hall of Fame during sound-check at the Regina Casino on May 29, 2009.
In fact, he had it posted on the jumbo-tron so I wouldn't forget it. He also asked for that 50 Years of Rock & Roll badge at the bottom.
