Atlantis

This is my cover of “Atlantis”, which was a 1963 hit for the British instrumental group “The Shadows”.  It was composed by Jerry Lordan, who also wrote the instrumental hit “Apache”.

This is my 4th attempt at getting a good recording of my arrangement. The first one I did almost 4 years ago. It think this one is an improvement, but may still have a way to go.

Walk Don’t Run

“Walk Don’t Run” was the Venture’s first big hit, making it to number two on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1960. They re-released a different arrangement in 1964. The first video incorporates aspects of both versions, as well as some other period-characteristic things like heavily-echoed muted strings and half-step-up key changes.

The second video is a straight cover of the original version: “The song that started it all”.
