Bumble Bee Twist

“Bumble Bee Twist” was a track on the Ventures 1962 album “Twist with the Ventures”. On the first pressings of the LP, this track was entitled “The Wasp”. Songwriting credit is given to members Don Wilson, Nokie Edwards, and Bob Bogle. However, it is clearly an adaptation of “Bumble Bee Boogie”, which is itself based on Rimsky-Korsakov’s “Flight of the Bumblebee”.

My arrangement is basically of cover of the Ventures version.
