About The Shadows: 

The Shadows (originally known as the Drifters) were an English instrumental rock group. They were Cliff Richard's backing band from 1958 to 1968 and on numerous reunion tours. The Shadows have placed 69 UK charted singles from the 1950s to the 2000s, 35 credited to the Shadows and 34 to Cliff Richard and the Shadows. The group, who were in the forefront of the UK beat-group boom, were the first backing band to emerge as stars. As pioneers of the four-member instrumental format, the band consisted of lead guitar, rhythm guitar, bass guitar and drums. Their range covers pop, rock, surf rock and ballads with a jazz influence.

The core members from 1958 to 2015 were Hank Marvin and Bruce Welch. Along with the Fender guitar, another cornerstone of the Shadows sound was the Vox amplifier. The Shadows, with Cliff Richard, dominated British popular music in the late 1950s and early 1960s in the years before the Beatles. The Shadows' number one hits included "Apache", "Kon-Tiki", "Wonderful Land", "Foot Tapper" and "Dance On!". They disbanded in 1968, but reunited in the 1970s for further commercial success.

The Shadows are the fourth most successful act in the UK singles chart, behind Elvis Presley, the Beatles, and Cliff Richard. The Shadows and Cliff Richard & the Shadows each have had four No. 1 selling EPs.

Review:

All of the songs in this CD have been released before on various Polygram CD's. What you get are the titles that were composed by the Shadows themselves. Most U.S. residents dont know the Shadows. They are the best instrumental band that came out of the late 50's early 60's. The songs in this collection are from later sessions but none the less maintain the high quality and sound of the Shadows. Hank Marvin's lead guitar is supurb as usual. Bruce Welch selected these track and his rhythm guitar is also outstanding. Brian Bennett who is one of the best drummers in the U.K. is also excellant. These three are what is now known as the Shadows but they are suplimented by keyboard/arranger Cliff Hall. Several bass guitar players also add to this great CD,Alan Jones and Mark Griffiths do most of the bass work.If you like great instrmentals with outstanding guitar work with a solid rhythm section try this one. It ranks up there with the best.
