Shadows Workout CD 16+

Many thanks for purchasing this my latest workout.

This time I have covered a more varied selection of material as I feel there are quite a few instrumentals by other artists that would be of interest to Shads-style players. "Samba Pa Ti" by Santana has always been a favourite of mine and I decided to change the arrangement of this so that it finishes on the main theme of the tune as opposed to a long improvisation. My thoughs were that it would be easier to keep up with and more interesting to play along with the backing track in this form.

For acoustic players I have recorded "Twelve String Shuffle" which was an early Bert Weedon track which I believe holds up very well today and Mark Knopfler's haunting "Wild Theme".

I was recently reminded of The Outlaws and their version of "Swingin' Low" which after listening to I had to record and I remembered "Secret Agent" which was the flip side of "The Desperados" by the (Bristol) Eagles back in the '60s which is something I always though I should play but never have until now.

By way of release I have included "What A Lovely Tune" (with no dialogue) and "Hootsmon" (Lord Rockingham's XI) as instrumentals to have some fun with!

In the Hank and Shadows area I have recorded backing tracks for "Dancing In The Dark", "The Power Of Love" and "I Will Always Love You".

Again my thanks go to Dave Prickett for his unending keboard skills and attention to detail.

Well, that's it for number 16 - I'd better now plan the next one!!!
