Ginza Lights

June 25, 2019 at 10:39 am Leave a comment

This is my cover of “Ginza Lights”, originally a track on the Ventures 1966 album, “Go With the Ventures”. This album is primarily covers of then recent hits like “Monday Monday”, “Good Lovin'”  and “Eight Miles High”.

“Ginza Lights” is one of the “filler” tracks — which I usually find more interesting — written by members of the group. An up-tempo rocker, songwriting credit in this case is shared by all four: Bob Bogle, Nokie Edwards, Mel Taylor and Don Wilson.

Ginza is a district of Tokyo, and is a popular upscale area of Tokyo, with numerous internationally renowned department stores, boutiques, and restaurants. By 1966, the Ventures were enormously popular in Japan (and they still are) and had already toured the country many times.
