Red River Rock

Red River Rock“, is an instrumental version of the cowboy ballad, “Red River Valley”. First recorded by Johnny and the Hurricanes, instrumental rock and roll band from Toledo, Ohio, it peaked at #5 in the USA and #3 in the UK in 1959.

In 1963 the Ventures released “The Ventures Play Telstar and the Lonely Bull” which consists entirely of cover versions of popular instrumentals from the late 50’s to early 60’s. “Red River Rock” is on that LP.

My arrangement is not a cover of either the original or the Ventures versions, but is very much in that style.
