    Thank you very much for the reply Fid, glad to meet a fellow Shadows fan. In2theshadows is the name of the band I play with, in which I am the bassplayer, we cover the shadows from 1958 till 1980s and throw in a lot of shadows soundalikes as well.
    take a look at our web site www.in2theshadows.com

    any tabs backings are always appreciated to rehearse with.

    We are adding a cliff set and I have to do backing vocals so these will help me no end

    Odd that even fans of the man insist on not calling him by the right name.

    It's (Sir) Cliff Richard, not Richards.

    well I stand corrected but if you read I am not a fan of Cliff Richard ( Richards) but of the Shadows who wrote some of Cliffs hits and created some of the greatest instrumental hits of our time.

    Graeme is right, Richard (No s) is Sir, but unfortunately, me too, I only know Sir Richard through Marvin & al.
    For many people, the Shads are just Cliff's backing group, ie some shadows.
    Yeah, but some shadows!

    I actually listen to Blackmore, Clapton, Hendrix, Vai, Vaughan, Malsteem, but I don't think that Rolling Stone's 100 guitar players of all time list is worth anything, especially when Hendrix is no better than Terry Kath (by his own words, when he watched Chicago played live). And Kath is not even on the list.
    And they probably have no idea who Hank Marvin is.

    I even consider Bruce Welch one of the most talented rhythm guitar player of all times.

    Now both of them played in the same band, and they are both excellent composers too, no wonder why we are indulged with so many wonderful hits from the Shadows back in the 60s.


    He he, glad to meet you two in2theshadow, and korger1.


    The Bachelor Boy karaoke is on the way, and more Shadows' midi are coming up, too.
    Patience, gentlemen!

    Paul,
    The Shadow midis I've been looking for are pretty tough to get on the Internet, if you have them and are willing to share, I'll be more than delighted:

    - Don't Make My Baby Blue
    - The Bandit
    - This Hammer
    - The Day I Met Marie
    - Another Night
    - Semi-Detached Mr Suburban (from "Jigsaw")
    - Deep Roots (from "Rockin' With Curly Leads")
    - Years Away (from "Rockin' With Curly Leads")

    Fair enough.

    The Shadows certainly had a string of big instrumental hits, but it would be unfair to claim it was 'all their own work' - much credit is due to Jerry Lordan, who wrote many of the tunes the Shadows (and other intstrumentalists of the time) became famous for.

    Lordan compositions which come to mind are 'High Sierra', 'Diamonds', 'Atlantis', 'Wonderful land', 'Starfire', 'Mustang', 'Apache' and 'Scarlett O'Hara' - truly in a class of their own.
