New recordings for Japan

Apr, 12 2010

The Ventures have just completed a recording session for the latest Japanese CD scheduled for this summer, on the EMI Japan label.  We are calling this "The Beatles Project", as we do not yet know the title of the CD.  However, it will feature the 6 new tracks just recorded, including "Norwegian Wood", "In My Life" and "Back in the USSR", which will be compiled with 8 existing titles, several from The Ventures' 10th Anniversary Album and other 1960's albums, as well as "All You Need is Love" from the "Rocky" CD, which was Bob Bogle's last major recording session.

We will post more details as they become available, and of course, we will offer this CD on our website within a few days after it is released in Japan.  If anyone would like to sign up for a pre-order, please e-mail me at, and we will put your name on the list - this will also help us to order sufficient stock to fulfil orders as quickly as possible after the release date.
