AllMusic Review by

If you're expecting the Ventures' big hits from CEMA Special Markets' Only the Hits, you'll be disappointed. Their biggest singles, "Walk -- Don't Run" and "Hawaii Five-O," are nowhere to be found here. That's because this is a collection that features the Ventures playing hit instrumentals, including "Sleepwalk," "Pipeline," "Rumble," "Raunchy," "Roadrunner," "Honky Tonk" and "Rawhide." Since the Ventures are a good band, this is quite listenable indeed -- it's just not a hits collection.
