The Collection Review

by Steve Leggett

The Shadows are the quintessential British instrumental group, and if they began their career as the backing band for Cliff Richard (Richard was a founding member of the Shadows when he was still known by his birth name Harry Webb and the group was calling itself the Drifters), they went on to establish themselves as one of the most popular instrumental groups in the world. This two-disc, 35-track collection, which features the Shadows on instrumental versions of several classic pop hits, shows why.
