“Midnight” was the “B” side of the Shadows 1961 hit “FBI”. Penned by guitarists Hank Marvin and Bruce Welch, it is pretty obvious that they were inspired by Santo & Johnny’s “Sleepwalk”. 9 more words

This very pretty song was the “B” side to the Shadows 1963 hit single, “Shindig”.  My arrangement is a cover of the original.


The Hustle
