Top Shadow Music.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Shadow Music: Stereo/Mono (Audio CD)
This was a really difficult disc to obtain but well worth the effort as it contains some of the Shads best instrumental work and their vocals are as good as anyone going around at the time of release.
The music is varied and arranged in such a way that the listener is always finding things that had been missed on previous playings.
It is a really polished effort and shows just how talented these guys were when there was a lot of dross in the '60s marketplace.

I agree with your review, this certainly is a great album and along with Jigsaw some great arrangements.Certainly when John Rostill joined the band they really were one of the best sounding beat groups around, but ignored relatively speaking at the time as instrumentals were deemed unfashionable. Ofcourse this period,66/67 was at the height of the British blues boom, Mayall et al so its understandable, but a shame.I think people listening this now will hear just what a great band they were and ARE.I remember having a chat with Hank and Bruce in about 85 and they both wholeheartedly agreed that they never sounded better than when John joined the group.That and the improved studio equipment
