Redsicovered Insrumental Gems
on 28 March 2014
I initially bought this collection for one track "Outbreak of Murder" by Gordon Franks. An atmospheric TV theme from a forgotten TV crime drama shown on the BBC on Saturday nights in the early sixties. I had it on a single had was delighted that it has finally appeared on a CD. This collection contains some gems such as the original version of "Wonderful Land" by The Shadows but minus the strings. However it has also revealed another favourite for me, "Sioux Serenade" by The Outlaws, I had never heard this before and cannot understand why this melodic track was not a hit at the time. With an astonishing 66 tracks you will find some rarities along side the more familiar ones. Early sixties British tracks are often overshadowed by the American ones, thankfully the Rock History series of CD collections is finally putting the record straight.
