The Shadows first LP was the first LP I ever had a hand in buying. I was four years old and remember going into the record shop in Aylesbury with my Dad. This was on the record player and he bought it. Sadly, the old mono green label LP suffered at my hands (it was played rather a lot) and I replaced it with a "Fame" re-issue in Stereo in 1980 or thereabouts. (Fantastic sound quality but "hissy"). There's some truly great music here by some very talented young musicians. Norrie Paramour was to these guys (and Frank Ifield among others) what I feel George Martin was to the Beatles, nurturing them and encouraging them to give of their very best. I didn't get to know the second LP for years afterwards, but it's great too.

Twenty years or so ago, someone obviously decided to master this and its follow-up for CD. The result is a classic case of heavy handedness (on the first album) and a reasonable job on the second... (I bought my copy of this (1991) CD a few years ago.)

The tracks of the first LP sound like they've been through the audio mangle (they have, it's called "No Noise"). All the life and atmosphere has gone and the crisp sparkle muffled, along with the hiss, which pooled in three places (left, right and centre) on the later LP I bought. Sorry, I'd rather have the "three track" hiss and retain that lovely, crisp, ambient, old fashioned "fifties" shiny sound. These days, it could be done so much more sympathetically, but the release would sell in such small quantities it probably wouldn't be economic to do it, a real shame. I understand that there's a comprehensive '60's box set where, I believe, this first album sounds much better.

Conversly, the tracks comprising the second LP "Out Of The Shadows", sound rather good by comparison.

These 2 albums were released when I was in my early teens, and the memories they bring back are very evocative. To think that The Shads were in their late teens/early twenties when they released these albums shows the quality and dedication that they put into their music. These are a must for any serious Shads collector.
"Find Me a Golden Street" and "Sleepwalk" bring back some wonderful memories, and the guitar playing 'aint bad either.

This is the disc that started a whole generation to get out,buy a guitar and amp and form their own group.This is vintage classic Shadows.A guitar super group when Jet Harris was on the new Fender bass and Brian Bennet was a maestro on drums.If you only ever buy one Shadows record get this ,it ticks all the boxes.

This CD is two CDs in one and is from that well loved group the shadows the tunes are not so well known as their later ones but they do have the two players on it who later left and branched out on their own Jett Harris and Tony Meehan.a very good CD to tap your toes to.

Great to listen to these tunes again and the musicianship. Bought this cd to replace the original vinyl albums. Would recommend this purchase to anyone who was a fan back in the 60's.There may be a slight loss in quality compared to the originals (how often this is true of many earlier recordings transferred to cd) but unless you played them side by side most people wouldn't either know or care.

I thought I'd add a review here - of the albums, not of the sound quality on the CD which, going by the other reviews, I can well believe - EMI's track record at remastering its 50s/60s recordings is not great.

I recently acquired through a well-known auction site, an old 8-track cartridge entitled 'The Shadows As Was! "27 Wonderful Tracks"', catalogue number 8X-EXE 1007 on the EMI "Double Executive Series" label. It was available on cassette aswell (but not vinyl).

I collect EMI 8-track cartridges because when they're in good condition they sound excellent and can often offer better sound quality than the later CD issues that replaced them.

Anyway, half the tracks were (p) 1961 and half (p) 1962 so I guessed that the tape might simply have been an amalgamation of the group's first two albums, which after searching and finding this release, proves my hunch was right.

However I am in the fortunate position of being able to hear glistening crisp stereo copies of these tracks without no-noise or any other heavy-handed digital dodginess. And it is a revelation. Although The Shadows might sound to some like "candy rock", there is some real pulsating bass in these recordings (which I'm sure didn't come across that well on the original vinyls and also on this CD release) and some storming drum solos (such as the extravaganza on 'Little "B"') which even the heaviest tight-jeaned long-hairs would be proud of. There are a few tracks where the boys sing, and really it's not for the best - I think the lads were wise to mainly stick to instrumentals (sorry guys!) but mainly the rest of the tracks make up for it. Easy to listen to, but with the punch and kick that easy-listening doesn't have.

All I'd like to find now are decent quality, stereo versions of their earlier single hits like 'Apache' and 'Wonderful Land'.

This has to be the best buy ever for Shadows fans, these early 60's tracks are exactly as I remember them, and in my opinion
represent their real style, the quality of the tracks are spot on and original recordings have been kept in without being digitised
or messed about with, also the price of these albums could'nt be better.
