1997 Tribute Compilation Still In Shrink Wrap. Includes Custom Insert With Liner Notes On Every Track. “Even As The Overcrowded Field Of Tribute Albums Go, This Is A Pretty Goofy And Arcane Take On The Concept. The Shadows Were A Popular Band In Britain And Much Of The Rest Of The World, But Never Made A Dent In The United States. Yet All Of The 18 Artists On This Compilation, Released Three Decades After The Shadows Had Passed Their Prime, Are American. That In Itself Says Something About Just How Wide Niche Collector Fanaticism For Early Rock Music Had Gotten By The End Of The 20th Century. Aside From Davie Allan & The Arrows And James Mankey Of Concrete Blonde, None Of The Performers Have Much Name Recognition, Though Some Have Albums And Cult Reputations In The Indie World, Like Teisco Del Rey, The Boss Martians, And The Aqua Velvets. But All Sociological Hand-Wringing Aside, This Is Actually A Pretty Decent Collection Of Shadows Covers, Mixing Some Of Their Biggest British Hits ("Apache," "Atlantis," "Man Of Mystery," "The Savage," "Theme For Young Lovers," "The Rise And Fall Of Flingel Bunt") With Cuts Taken From Shadows B-Sides, Eps, And Lps (And In One Case, Even A Rare Solo Release By Shadows Guitarist Hank Marvin). That Works To The Compilers' Advantage, Since A Problem Inherent To So Many Tribute Anthologies Is The Inevitable Unfavorable Comparison With The Originals. In This Case, You'd Be Very Hard-Pressed To Find Many Americans Who Even Know The Original Hit Versions, And There Must Be Very Very Few Americans Indeed Who Would Be Familiar With The Originals Of All Of The Songs Here.” – Richie Unterberger, AMG... more details
