Back in 1964 or so I'd spend hours on my bedroom floor, building models of cars, planes, and monsters from kits I'd bought at the dime store. I had a portable record player that I kept turning with albums by groups like Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass, The Beach Boys, and The Beatles. One album that received as much play as any of them was The Ventures in Space.
The song "Sleepwalk" was not on that album, but it's a standard that I had heard by many other groups. The Ventures are a group that might be heard in my dreams. The song "Sleepwalk" would be an appropriate choice for a dream soundtrack.
