UK collection. The Golden Age of Instrumental Rock lasted for 10 glorious years - from modest beginnings in 1956 with just three US Top 100 chart entries, through the peak year of 1961 with 52 hits, onto a still very respectable 27 chart showings in 1965. After the breakthrough of the Beatles in the USA, everything changed, but even then, the Ventures kept the instrumental flag flying into the early 70s. For a movement that was originally seen as little more than a passing fad, it has outlasted many other genres and endures into the 21st century, maverick young musicians still strapping on guitars and heading out for a twangy trip on the reverb-ed highway of instrumental rock to play classics such as 'Walk Don't Run', 'Rumble', 'Miserlou', 'Apache', 'Wipe Out' or 'Pipeline'. Here we bring you a second volume of Long-Lost Honkers & Twangers featuring 10 rarities from the genre's heyday, plus a whopping 14 previously unissued gems by the Ventures, Ramrods, Velvetones, Mus-Twangs and other instrumental bands. Compilation and notes by Ace's go-to instro experts Dave Burke and Alan Taylor, longstanding co-editors of Pipeline magazine.
