Probably the most prolific group of all time, with more than two hundred albums to their credit, The Ventures could have been forgiven if the standard dropped occasionally. Fortunately, Going To The Ventures Dance Party is one of their better albums, due in no small part to the virtuosity of drummer Mel Taylor. It is he that provides much of the album with its drive, but he seldom dominates the proceedings. Instead, he keeps beat like his life depends upon it and compliments the lead guitar and other instruments to perfection. In light of this, the album deserved much more attention than it received upon its original release, peaking at a lowly #90 on the Billboard album chart.
