I was disappointed with the item because I anticipated a selection of Hank's recordings, NOT three actually CDs which had been issued several years ago eg Into the Light and Hank Plays Cliff.
Had this been made clear I would not have ordered and would have saved on return postage!

Hank Marvin. The name says it all; the glasses, the grin and the magical music that comes from his trademark red Stratocaster. He is a true legend of British music.

For the first time, EMI have packaged together three of his solo albums that really are The Best.

Hank Plays Cliff has Hank approaching some of his mate Cliff's biggest hits from a slightly different angle - and it comes off.

From Living Doll to We Don't Talk Anymore, the guitar does the singing - although Cliff does contribute to four of the tracks.

Sir Cliff also sings on four tracks of the second album, Hank's 1993 solo outing called Heartbeat.

16 songs, which include three original tracks, featuring Shadow's drummer Brian Bennett, Brian and Hank's sons Warren and Ben, along with others who perform with The Shadows.

Dire Straits' Mark Knopfler guests on Wonderful Land (which was produced by ELO's Jeff Lynne).

This is a collection of Hank's favourite hits like Heartbeat, Oxygene (Part IV), The Crying Game and Live And Let Die.

The third album, entitled Into The Light, is another album of covers, but mingling with over half a dozen `originals'.

He seems to like teaming up with other guitar greats and the legendary Duane Eddy and Brian May turn up here.

All in all, a fantastic compilation, showcasing the prodigious talent of Hank, and one that makes us look at some very familiar hits in a new light.

Outstanding. As well as those other tracks, a particularly Track-4, "I Only Have Eyes For You", is like I'm looking at over 250-CD's, and it is definitely this Hank CD I want to play. L-o-n-g lasting music, and my pleasures listening to same is also l-o-n-g lasting.

Very smooth, enjoyable and nice blended selections of Hank Marvin's songs,
especially the rare, hard to find " The twelve of never"!

This is a very good set that fills more than a few gaps in my collection. If you like the Shadows, you will love this.
