Biography

“When I was a kid, all I wanted was a red electric guitar. It had to be red because of Hank and his magical sound.” The words of Mark Knopfler, recalling how as a young lad in Newcastle he dreamed of becoming a guitarist just like his hero HANK MARVIN.

HANK MARVIN too grew up in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne during the 1940s/50s. He first learned to play banjo and gigged with various ... Read more in Amazon's Hank Marvin Store

Product Description

Product Description

The man who defined the sound of a generation releases his 15th solo album. Eponymously entitled HANK the album features newly recorded interpretations of some of Hank’s favourite summer-themed music, along with one new original recording "Summer Guitar". It’s Marvin’s first new album release since his 2007 UK top-ten hit Guitar Man and consists of 14 tracks, nine of which are arranged by Hank and his son Ben.
The album also features some backing vocals from Hank’s daughter Tahlia. “These are tunes which all have some kind of connection with summer,” explains Hank. “The titles I’ve chosen are all very recognisable, which is important for this style of album. But also they’re vehicles which enable me to be creative and still approach them in a way that people will know that it’s me playing.”
Hank Marvin is one of the most influential guitar players of all time and has enjoyed a long and successful career, regularly featuring high in polls that determine the greatest guitarists of all time.

Product Description

File The SHADOWS. All new 14 track 2014 studio album from the master guitarist. This is his 15th solo album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great To Have a New Hank Marvin Album! 12 Jun 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
As we have come to expect this is a very well crafted album with Hank's playing right up there. The Kinks " Waterloo Sunset" is a unusual but very pleasing cover. He has also produced a sonically delightful "Sealed With a Kiss".

The theme running through the album is summer and I can envisage many oldsters sitting out on the decking with a cold drink telling grandchildren and ayone who will listen about the great rock and roll days when Cliff Richard and The Shadows were THE band across the western world except for the USA.

It interesting to hear him playing lead against an acoustic rhythm guitar. Being very critical of recordings I am delighted to report that this is recorded with care and plays superbly as either a download or a CD.

So you guitar fans of the old days get this into your collection.

Nice one Hank!

4.0 out of 5 stars Always good but can do better! 8 Jun 2014
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
I have been a fan of the Shadows, and of Hank, since their earliest days. I met him back in 1970 - indeed he came to my house, then in Norfolk, and I recorded an interview . So I enjoy this album, but it's a bit 'lazy'. He can play these 'standards' with his eyes closed (and probably does), and I'd like to hear him playing something rockier!

5.0 out of 5 stars Magic, Hank. 9 Jun 2014

The Old Fella still has the magic in those fingertips. A good selection of timeless classics, well produced and excellent guitar playing and backing musicians.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hank's latest 23 Jun 2014
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
As a long term Shadows/Hank Marvin fan I was disappointed , maybe perhaps I was expecting too much. Although all the songs he chose to cover were known to me I did not feel that Hank's guitar came through and they lacked the brilliance of past performances.
I struggled to find one track to mark as a favourite worthy of adding to my collection. Maybe next time................?

5.0 out of 5 stars Hank Steps Out Of The Shadows 18 Jun 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have been a Shadows fan for nearly 30 years and admire the intricate guitar work of Hank Marvin. I own all his solo albums and stumbled across his latest offering Hank when I saw it advertised recently. Any Shads fan would be mad not to buy it because it is FAB!!!

Hank is Hank and to me know one can replace him. I have seen him live on quite a few occasions and this album is excellent. Worth the purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Stratocaster sounds 2 Jun 2014
By Jasper
Format:Audio CD
Great collection from one of the first great English electric guitarists. Very smooth sounds and tasteful playing.

The man himself is sounding better than ever. Hard to believe Hank's been around so long. Genuinely timeless.

On a very different note try Sherlock Holmes and the Flying Zombie Death Monkeys. Very funny and a little avant-garde but I'd recommend it.
