The Shadows are easily the most popular and influential British instrumental group of all time. Their career started in the late 50's as Cliff Richard's backing band and they consistently hit the singles charts well into the 80's. Lead guitarist Hank Marvin is cited by many modern pickers as a major influence. Throughout the latter part of their career, they released many instrumental covers and interpretations of classic themes.
In autumn 2009, Cliff Richard & The Shadows (Hank Marvin, Bruce Welch & Brian Bennett) were reunited for a concert tour for the very last time. Starting in Ireland, the tour ran extensively in the UK before heading off around the rest of Europe. The tour celebrates the 50th anniversary of Cliff & The Shadows first collaboration, a partnership that would go one to be one of the most successful in UK chart history. The set list is drawn from their many successful years of performing together and is full of the toe tapping hits that everybody knows and loves.
Another quality Time-Life music collection with 500 originals from the period 1955-1964, the so called "Rock'n'Roll Era".

The Shadows are usually thought of as the quintessential British instrumental group and, along with the American band the Ventures and the Swedish group the Spotnicks, one of the most popular instrumental groups in the world. But that barely tells the story of their true significance in the history of British rock & roll including the fact that they were the first home-grown British rock & roll band to dominate the U.K. charts; or that they weren't originally an instrumental group, either.
