Great British Twang! CD

The Golden Age of the twangy UK instrumental occurred between the late 1950s and the very early 1960s, inspired by The Shadows’ spectacular success.
This collection presents thirty-four tracks from six guitar-led groups, whose sound and style were pretty much a direct homage to The Shads.
First up are The Eagles, from Bristol, who racked up airplay with Bristol Express and Exodus, followed by The Krew Kats, aka Marty Wilde’s Wildcats (who also recorded as The Tom Cats), who charted with Trambone.
The Fentones, who also backed Shane Fenton, charted with The Mexican and The Breeze And I, while The Hunters weighed in with Teen Scene and The Storm - two hugely collectable singles.
Finally, The Scorpions cut two equally collectable 45s, Ghost Riders In The Sky and Rockin’ At The Phil, while The Packabeats charted with Gypsy Beat, before famously cutting The Traitors with Joe Meek.
