The Ventures, “Play the Greatest Instrumental Hits of All Time,” Varese Sarabande. These are modern recordings of old Ventures hits, and other instrumentals that many probably thought were originally done by the Ventures. It doesn’t matter. This stuff is timeless fun. You know all these songs, and there ain’t no reason to do anything but love all these songs.

The Gibson Brothers, “Bona Fide,” Sugar Hill Records. I wish I liked these guys more. They sound more spirited, more interested in delivering the songs, than most contemporary bluegrass I hear. There’s no sense of that sterile attempt to stay constricted by narrow parameters that brings down so much of the genre. But, there’s not enough musical interest for me, either. It’s nice enough in the background, just not something I’d go out of my way to hear.
