This CD is dedicated to the memory of Malcolm Hall
Thanks again for purchasing my latest workout.
In the same format as Workout 16 I have concentrated on a more varied selection of material which I believe should appeal to "Shads" players.
Sadly Jet Harris and Bert Weedon are no longer with us and as a tribute I have recorded backing tracks for Jet's "Applejack" and Bert's "High Steppin'" and "Tokyo Melody". Incidentally, Bert used a Burns Double Six 12-string electric on "High Steppin'" and for those of you with a good memory "Tokyo Melody" was the television theme tune for the 1964 Olympics.
Also I have finally included, after many requests, a backing track for the Bristol Eagles version of the "Exodus Main Theme" which I should have recorded ages ago.
On the less challenging side I have recorded a backing track for Sky's "Carillon" and have included two separate backing track mixes - one including the electric solo in the middle and one without.
I recently bought a copy of Duane Eddy's latest CD and just had to produce a backing track for "Twango" - again there are some alternative backing tracks here depending on which part(s) you wish to play.
On the Shadows side of things I have produced backing tracks for "Up Where We Belong", "Three Times a Lady" and "Scotch On The Socks".
Finally, I have put together a version loosely based on the Shadows 1980's live version of "Peter Gunn" which gives a bit of scope for self-interpretation.
Again, many thanks to Dave Prickett for his incredible keyboard skills and attention to detail.
Well I suppose I had better go and plan the next CD - any suggestions?
