The Shadows were a British instrumental group, the equivalent of The Ventures in the US. Both groups pioneered the three guitar (lead, rhythm, bass) plus drummer format, though the former had less of the driving, pulsing, beat that characterized the latter.
The Shadows were hugely popular in the late 1950s and 1960s. They started out as the backup band for singer Cliff Richards before they parted ways and, like many groups of that era, they split up, re-formed, and changed personnel along the way.
A friend of mine sent me a link to a recent (c. 2010) reunion performance. They played some of their old hits and sounded really good. I was not surprised at the quality of the performance but I was surprised that they managed to sell out a big stadium that seemed to have a good proportion of young people.
I guess some music will never die.
So kick back and enjoy 27 minutes of pure instrumental music by one of the great instrumental rock bands.
