5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By STEVIE on 25 Sep 2014
With a title like 'The Absolutely Essential...', you'd expect just that -- the be all and end all of recordings made by The Shadows, but today's market is generally flooded with the likes of this 'put together and re-issued cheaply' triple CD pack, often called a boxed set. There's glaring omissions of course, and if they took out those dreadful attempts at vocals (sorry Shads fans, but I never did like their singing!), and put those missing instrumentals in their place, perhaps even adding a 4th CD, then this effort would be more worthy of its title. Nonetheless it is still represents a fair sample of most of their hit singles, both A and B sides, with a good smattering of early LP tracks too, the ones before they waned a bit, had changes in personnel and finally left EMI's Columbia label to join Polydor. So do I detect that the outfit that put this out only had the pick of what was declared 'out of copyright'? Its nice if you want a bit of nostalgia, but not one for the keen, knowledgeable collector who will have no doubt got all these in their original form anyway.
