THE SHADOWS 'The Best of' LP
THE SHADOWS 'The Best of' LP'
Apache' was the first of a series of hits for the Shadows, whilst 'Man Of Mystery'/'The Stranger' reached Number 5 in the UK in 1960. The following year saw the release of four singles, all of which were Top ten hits in the UK: 'FBI', 'The Frightened City', 'Kon-Tiki' and 'The Savage'. Although the Shadows had a brief renaissance in the Seventies, largely fuelled by their Eurovision hit 'Let Me Be The One', this compilation documents the golden years of 1958 to 1961 four brief years during which a unique sound was created, often imitated but never equalled, and which can instantly be recognised as 'The Sound of the Shads'.
