Cliff and the ShadsAre there 4 words more capable of sending me into a swoon and, when I pick myself up, stumbling for the Telecaster and cranking the Peavey up to 11? There are not.
And on yesterday's NPR I hear of a Shad's reunion tour.
What more obvious URL that 'cliffandshads' for everything you need to know?
Linking off that seems to be a dedicated page to Hank B and the lads, and the rest are frames I can't pin down, so I can't send you direct to tour details or Goran's backing tracks site.
Hank B Marvin was the first wielder of a Fender Strat and the music of the Shadows was the only crutch around to see me thru soul-crippling, spirit-humbling years at a second school I did time in.
I'm 'mid a Shads festschrift as I type thanks to my 6-album boxed set of the sounds that kept us going: 'Apache', of course, but we all have tunes that brought a special thrill. In order,
- Dance On!
- Wonderful land
- Blue Star
- Wonderful Land
- Find Me a Golden Street
- Foot Tapper
- and the first time I heard the song, 'All My Sorrows/Trials'
I also hear that (Sir) Cliff might join them on-stage. Eeeuuw - what a grisly thought.
