    The Ventures Japanese LPs Lot of 2. The Ventures are absolutely revered in Japan, and there are dozens of albums by the group that were only ever released in that country. These are both live albums, and they're exquisite pressings, with the pure sound on virgin vinyl that Japanese recordings are known for. Each has the original insert and the strip of paper known as the "obi" still intact. The first record in this group is "Ventures on Stage '76" LLS-80716 Stereo. It's a white label promo copy. Interestingly, there are female vocals on the tracks "This Land Is Our Land," "Those Were The Days," and "Never Can Say Goodbye." Condition: M- (record) / VG++ (cover). The second is "Chameleon" EWS-81332 Stereo. This one has three extra musicians playing on the LP: Kazuhiko Katoh, Yu Imai, and Hideki Matsutake. Condition: M- (record)/ VG++ with small cut out at lower left edge (cover).
