The Shadows ‘20 Golden Greats’

This was the first LP I purchased, aged 12 in 1977 from Woolworths in Aberdeen, Scotland.
An Uncle had the 45 single version of ‘Apache’ and hearing that at a formative age, transformed me into a devotee of all things guitar driven, as well as of the motorik beat.
The LP has been played so often that the grooves are almost worn through!
It has been a lifelong companion.
I had no idea as a 12 year old, that I’d find myself living in Perth, Western Australia, just like Hank Marvin does!
The other week, I saw one of his vintage Stratocasters, on display at Concept Music, where I also purchased a Yamaha Revstar last year.
Talk about closing the circle…💛
