The Ventures are now safely enshrined in The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. They sold millions of albums during the course of their career and placed 14 singles on the BILBOARD MAGAZINE Pop Singles Chart.
They are best remembered for their early single hits, “Walk Don’t Run” and “Ram-Bunk-Shush” which were released during 1960 and 1961.
Right in the middle of these two hits was their second single release. “Perfidia” was an old Xavier Cugat hit from 1941. The Ventures version would reach number 15.
“Perfidia” would help to establish The Ventures as one of the leading instrumental groups in the world.
