Genesis

This is my cover of “Genesis”, which was composed by Hank Levine and released as the “B-side” to the Ventures 1962 single, “Yellow Jacket”, which did not chart. It never appeared on any album, as far as I can tell.

This track qualifies as a “deep cut” to me. I only just discovered it yesterday, and I have been studying, transcribing, arranging and recording Ventures material for a decade or more…and have done over 150 of their songs. It is quite unlike anything else they ever did – it is very atmospheric/ambient in nature. They apparently never played it live, either.

Composer Hank Levine did the orchestral arrangements for the Ventures 1961 album “Colorful Ventures” and also composed one of the tracks on it, “Silver City”. “Yellow Jacket” was also on “Colorful Ventures”.

I used my baritone guitar for the lead part.
