  1. Couldn't get enough of my mum's The Ventures Play Telstar LP. Played it back to front every single day for about a year. I was in kindergarten and didn't know my ABCs or how to count to 10 yet, but damn if I didn't know every rift on this record! I still do!

  2. Next to Jorgen Ingmann's 1960 recording of Apache, this is the most accurate and best cover!
    The Ventures include all components that Ingmann recorded. Every other cover I have heard leaves half of it out!!

  3. Listen to the call back on the refrain the shadows dont do it or the arrows.far superior version as only the ventures can do.

  4. Another of those greats of the sixties. I liked this one very much and still do. Through it is not the original version it is the version I like best. it is so well made and performed one can easily imagine an Apache moving around riding a horse or dancing. Very cool really.

  5. Wow! I remember this soundtrack played on the radio while growing up in the 60's. So, it's been decades my friends! Thank you guys for bringing my childhood back and thanks to that awesome tool Youtube for making it a reality!!!

  7. Great clean copy of this classic song. I used to have an Onkyo 1130 also, and the Discwasher stylus cleaner I still have. Very cool!

  8. This was the first record album I bought with my own money…still good. I was 12 or 13.
    If you haven't heard Jeff Beck play this tune on his live concert albumn, Live at the Iridium with Imelda May,
    do yourself a favor and invest $10 bucks for the DVD on eBay. Full 'o good stuff.
    No guitar player in the world better than Jeff Beck.

  9. OMG Thank You for uploading this version! The only one that gets the mood right if you ask me. Just beautiful. Perfect amount of reverb.

  10. The most haunting version of this song. Best lead Jorgen Ingman. Best bass line Bob Bogle. Shadows version a distant third IMO.

  11. This would make a good theme for a western movie, unlike the version from that bunch of jungle bunnies called "The Sugar Hill Gang".

  12. thank you for posting, Apache your recording is flawless…..can you please share with us, more Ventures, music…??? there's many, people that share their, music, but you do a great job…it sounds, just like when my then, 16 yr. brother, played the Ventures, records….

  13. I am not sure if I am right, but I do believe the original hit was done by Jorgan Ingman if not the right spelling the right pronunciation.

  14. I have the vinyl as well as the CD. Sometimes I prefer the vinyl…Just do! I got my first guitar because of this album. Every kid wanted to play like the Ventures. Now I'm an old geezer who still like their sound.
