“Theme From A Summer Place” will always be associated with Percy Faith. His version spent nine weeks at number one during 1960.
The Ventures released their single during 1969. Their’s was guitar based rather than having the lush strings. Unfortunately it would stall at number 83 on the BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Pop Singles Chart and was the band’s last chart single.
All ended well for The Ventures as they are now safely enshrined in the ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME.
