Josie

“Josie” is the final cut on the Venture’s 1961 album, “Another Smash”. Written by founders Bob Bogle and Don Wilson, the title is a reference to rhythm guitarist Don Wilson’s mother, Josie Wilson. The reason for the tribute is that she was an important supporter and promoter of the Venture’s early efforts.

She produced their first demo recordings herself when no commercial backers could be found. While Wilson and Bogle worked day jobs, Josie went around to radio stations and concert promoters with their demo records. She remained a co-producer and business manager until her death at 91 in 2007.

I would describe my version as a “loose cover” of the original.
