This is by far the best Shadows compilation that has been released. It hasn't been re-mastered, it hasn't been re-recorded, it's exactly the way these singles sounded back in the sixties, only without the crackles. These are the original EMI recordings and nearly all of their top 20 singles are on here. If you want the best of The Shadows, then this is the one you want.

How else to describe The Shadows? 45 years of pure class, and Hank Marvin and Bruce Welch still there at the highest class of class. I saw them in Birmingham this year (2005) and felt it an absolute privilege to hear them performing Apache exacly like I first heard it. How many other performers could ever do that with their first record and first No.1?

"20 Golden Greats" by the Shadows was released on vinyl in 1977 and on a CD in 1987. As the title says, there are 20 tracks on this album, and the total running time is ca. 49 minutes. The original album was very popular. It was in the UK charts for 43 weeks and held the # 1 position for six weeks.

The Shadows started to play in 1958. Over the years the line-up of the band changed several times. The tracks included on this album were produced between 1960 and 1967. Here are the names of the musicians who played in the band during this period:

** Hank Marvin (born 1941) - guitar
** Bruce Welch (born 1941) - guitar
** Tony Meehan (1943-2005) - drums (on the early hits)
** Brian Bennett (born 1940) - drums (on the later hits)
** Jet Harris (1939-2011) - bass (until 1962)
** Brian Locking (born 1938) - bass (1962-1963)
** John Rostill (1942-1973) - bass (from 1963)

Here are the 20 titles - the names of the composers are given in brackets:

# 1. Apache (by Jerry Lordan, 1934-1995). Produced 1960.
# 2. Man of Mystery (by Michael Carr, 1905-1968). Produced 1960.
# 3. The Frightened City (by Norrie Paramor, 1914-1979). Produced 1961.

# 08. The War Lord (by Jerome Moross, 1913-1983). Produced 1965.
# 09. A Place in the Sun (by Lordan). Produced 1966.
# 10. Atlantis (by Lordan). Produced 1962.

# 11. Wonderful Land (by Lordan). Produced 1962.

Format: Audio CD
This CD has 20 original Shadows tracks in stereo,apart from The War Lord in mono and they are the original recordings,ie not later re-recodings as often happens with groups/singers who have long careers.The version of Wonderful Land has the strings added to it,the sound samples are worth listening to.

This CD has been re-released as The Essential collection,see ASIN: B00008NF5R and may offer better value for money as it is a current release,this is the version I own and I got it used off amazon for a tiny amount.

I can recommend either plus 50 Golden Greats and Shadows in the 60's.

The 60's produced some excellent instrumental groups. One of the best has to be The Shadows which of course included Hank Marvin. I lost most of my vinyl collection so this is an attempt to rebuild the music from that era. I was not disappointed by the reproduction. I would recommend it to anyone

Released in 1976 on Vinyl, cassette & 8 track cartridge it is THE definitive hits album of only A sided singles taken from 1960-67 containing only instrus ie no vocals. Reissued in 1987 on CD and then ADD-type remastered sometime during the 1990's. Also, reissued in 2013 as a SHM-CD from Japan.

If you only want "Apache" on a CD format and are not fussed about the other 19 tracks then no problem as this is the best single CD album for you if you are just a casual fan. Sound quality on any CD is extremely high.

NB: only one track is in Mono as EMI lost the stereo master tape of the Warlord.
FBI is in mock stereo as the stereo master got shipped to the USA back in 1961/2 but got recovered back to London very recently this year(2013) in fact.
