The Shadows [click for larger image]

Tony Meehan (drums), Bruce Welch (guitar), Hank B. Marvin (guitar) and Jet Harris (bass) - the longest lived instrumental group in rock 'n' roll history, with nearly thirty hits to their credit - not counting another thirty on which they backed Cliff Richard. This formation lasted till October 61, when Brian Bennett replaced Meehan

Apache - The Shadows

Apache topped the UK charts for six weeks and was a world-wide hit except in America where lack of promotion led to the Shadows' version being overlooked whilst a cover version by Danish guitarist Jorgen Ingmann took the sales.
However Apache was voted Top Record of 1960 in the prestigious New Musical Express Readers' Poll. The Shadows had to persuade producer Norrie Paramour that this song should be the A-side. Paramour thought it should be the naval tune Quartermaster's Stores.
