GIN-IRO NO MICHI
Nobody could reasonably fault The Shadows’ elegant version of this tune with its neat changes of rhythm (the waltz-like sequence at 0:53 indeed resembling in its general approach and styling a number of group originals from the period 1964–1966), originally a vocal performed by a Japanese male quartet who rejoiced in the name of The Dark Ducks: for further details see on . The Ventures for their part give it that extra degree of oomph, with a nicely executed build-up and some very positive rhythm guitar.
