Run, Don’t Walk, The Ventures (?),  year unknown.That song title is not a typo, and I can’t find any info on the origin of the recording. One source claims it was unreleased, but that seems unlikely; it’s possibly the work of a tribute band. The Ventures had a huge hit with Walk, Don’t Run in 1960, but you knew that.
