I just got a six CD set called The Shadows The Early Years, presenting all of the band's recordings (well, the ones without that Cliff guy hogging the spotlight, anyway) circa 1959-1966. I was vaguely acquainted with The Shadows in the past, but I had mostly just read about them in various places, and had only heard a little bit of their music. Well, that changes right now! Yeah, I can see how Hank Marvin and his Fiesta Red Stratocaster (reputedly the first in the UK, as was Bruce Welch's Telecaster and Jet Harris' Precision Bass) really turned people's heads upside down. I think I'm gonna dig listenign to this!
