Venturing #10 & 11

“Yellow Jacket” was an album track for the Ventures, as far as I know, it was never released as a single. Still, it’s pretty catchy garage-band style rock’n’roll. You might note a resemblance to the “American Bandstand” theme.

“Sleepwalk” needs no introduction. A number one hit in 1959 for Santo and Johnny, there may be no better song in the world for a slow dance or for watching the submarine races.

Wonderful Land

“Wonderful Land” was an  instrumental hit written by Jerry Lordan (who also wrote Apache and Atlantis). It was recorded and released as a single by The Shadows in 1962. It stayed at No. 1 for eight weeks on the UK Singles Chart. interestingly, the Shadows never had any records chart in the USA — even though in England they were the most popular band until the Beatles came along.
