Rock Instrumental Classics - the 60's

Here's a wide array of morde essential rocker instro material. There's jazz-tinged fare by pianist Ray Bryant, roadhouse blues/boogie from Lonnie Mack, the Ventures' signature surf tune "Walk Don't Run," and another Duane Eddy floor-shaker, "Because They're Young." The T-Bones' "No Matter What Shape (Your Stomach's In)" was the theme song for Alka Seltzer that will be recognizeable to those of us of a certain age. Jorgen Ingmann’s "Apache" and "(Ghost) Riders in the Sky" by the Ramroads set the tone for future instro styles. Sorry for "Classical Gas", it's on the set but still ok as a novelty. Still excellent for building your library.
