One of the best instrumental albums around, the '64 space-surf classic by the Ventures called The Ventures In Space. Hard to pick my favorites, so here's five grooves you'll surely like. Just also learned these natives of Tacoma, Washington are the biggest selling instrumental band of all time with over 100 million records sold. This is no surprise considering their major influences on rock n' roll over the years. Here's the order: "Penetration," "Out of Limits," "He Never Came Back," "Solar Race," and the "Fourth Dimension." Thanks to the Wyld Chyld for introducing this album to me, it's now my favorite Ventures release. Enjoy.
