Label: Gizeh Records

Modern times are feeling increasingly fractured, with public life becoming split in to ever-more divisive categories.

The Shadows (1961)

The Shadows were formed from members of late 1950s UK skiffle groups: Hank Marvin and Bruce Welch, both inspired by US pop music, came from the Newcastle-based Railroaders (and also the Five Chesternuts on Columbia Records); and Jet Harris and Tony Meehan from London, both inspired by UK jazz–skiffle music, came from the Vipers Skiffle Group (on Parlophone Records). 121 more words
