Shadows - Rockin' With Curly Leads Rockin' With Curly Leads
Pop New - LP 762 EMA
Sealed 1974 UK Original. “Re-Forming After A Four Year Absence, The Shadows Broke Into The 1970s With An Almost Brutal Lack Of Restraint -- And An Instrumental Version Of The Who's "Pinball Wizard"/"See Me Feel Me," Which Rearranges The Simplistic Original With Fiendish Aplomb. A Decade Earlier, Hank Marvin Was The Idol Of Every Would-Be Guitarist In The U.K.. By 1973, Those Would-Bes Were The Hottest Shots Around, But Marvin Wasn't Even Slightly Phased. "Pinball Wizard," On The Other Hand, Is. It's Also Wah-Wahed, Echoed, And Everything Else He Can Throw Into The Pot. An Astonishing Workout -- And Only The Beginning Of The Treats In Store. Almost Without Exception, The 11 Songs Which Followed Completely Rewrite The Shadows' Intended Role In This Brave New World. News Of Their Reunion Was Greeted With A Weary Sigh, And The Inescapable Suspicion That They Were Back To Ride The Nostalgia Circuit And Build Up Their Pension Funds With Re-Creations Of Their Past. Instead, There's Not A Note In Sight Which Even Wants To Sound Like "Apache." In Fairness, "Good Vibrations" Probably Didn't Need To Be Revisited, And The Single "Turn Around And Touch Me" Is Pretty Weak As Well. But "Wide Eyed Frog" Is A Swampy, Shaft-Y Burble; "Gutbucket" Is A Churning, Funky Stomp; "Jumpin' Jack Input" Is A Firestorm Boogie. True, The Album Is A Little More Polite Than It Could Have Been; True, Too, Once Hank Marvin Has Run Through His Arsenal Of Wild Effects A Couple Of Times, They Don't Seem So Special (Or Wild) Any Longer. But In An Age Which Had Already Seen So Many Old Rockers Make Decidedly Slight Returns, Curly Leads At Least Knows What Year It Now Is.” – Dave Thompson, AMG... more details

Shadows - Somethin' Else Somethin' Else
Pop Used - LP SRS 5012 EMI
Beautiful 1969 UK Stereo Compilation Of Early Singles. “Originally Released In EMI's Budget Line, Something Else Is Remarkable Within The Band's 1960s Catalog In That It Marks The First Serious Attempt To Gather Together Some Of The Group's Best-Known Rarities -- And, As Such, It Catches The Band Executing Some Of The Better Tricks In Their Repertoire. Opening With Both Sides Of The Group's First-Ever 45, Back When They Were Still Called The Drifters, The Album Marches On Through A Chain Of Previously Uncollected B-Sides -- "Quatermaster's Stores," "Back Home," And "The Breeze And I" Among Them -- Before Acknowledging A Third Greatest Hits Collection Wouldn't Be Along Any Time Soon, By Picking Up Two Of Their Final Singles. Neither The Doomy "Tomorrow's Cancelled" Nor The Whimsical Psych-Lite Of "Dear Old Mrs Bell" Particularly Sparkle In Comparison With The Earlier Material, But Their Inclusion Is Welcome Regardless. Something Else Was Neither Conceived Nor Compiled With The Modern Collector In Mind, And Has, Of Course, Been Effortlessly Superseded By Countless Collections Since Then. Still, It's A Fascinating And Even Courageous Attempt To Give Shadows Fans Something New For Their Money -- A Generosity Which Subsequent Compilations Were Going To Be Hard-Pushed To Match.” – Dave Thompson, AMG... more details
