I'm being self-indulgent so if you don't want to see that, please look away now!

If an extra song could have been included (and, by the way, why say 'trks' instead of 'tracks' on the front cover?!!) on each side, I would add A Better Man Than I, Love Truth and Emily Stone (or Tokyo Guitar), Nobody Cares (or You Never Can Tell...thanks Chris) and It'll Be Me, Babe to sides 1-4 respectively. But...full marks to Bob Stanley for compiling this LP and (presumably) persuading Sainsbury's (!!!!!) to market it. I just need to record it onto a cassette and then I can play it in the car (oh no, my car doesn't have a cassette player in it any more... :( )

For anyone who's interested, the original mono versions of Scotch on the Socks (without the extra clowning in the Abbey Road reverb chamber as revealed on the '...At Abbey Road' CD) and Sunday for Seven Days (which I think is superior to the stereo version) are used. Interesting that Gutbucket and Wide Mouthed Frog are listed as copyright 1999 (when the remastered EMI digipack CDs came out) whereas Jungle Jam is c. 1973. All 'trks' are apparently copyright Parlophone Records Ltd...

At last! A Shads (or at least near-Shads) album that's not full of abysmal song covers. And it's a double!

The only downside is, I can't play vinyl anymore.

There are lots of new record players available for sale in all price-ranges. ;)

Just noticed a mastering error on Jungle Jam...the first two notes on the "synth-like effect* (John Farrar's guitar) are missing. Incidentally, I've noticed a horrendous mistake in the Pocket Guide to ShadowMusic book by Malcolm Campbell, Rob Bradford and Les Woosey...the version of My Way on Cliff's Live in Japan '72 LP is the Frank Sinatra song - not the Shadows song from Finders Keepers. Apologies if this has been noticed before.

I'm sorry to say this in the week when Iain Purdon has gone to great efforts to enable my new email address to be recorded on my member profile...but as a Shadows fan I don't really feel I have much in common with anyone else on this site so won't be posting anymore, except possibly the odd PM. I think I've done quite well to maintain a (hopefully occasionally useful) presence 8 years after being ripped to shreds by one of the moderators...

Cheerio all,

Clive

Picked one up at Braehead store. Used some Nectar points to keep the cost down. (But then bought a book and DVD set I had been looking out for!) Now I need to check that the stylus on my record deck is up to it...

Surely nobody who posts regularly here actually needs this double LP?

There isn't a track on it I haven't got at least once and most of them are in my collection in multiple instances.

I belong to that group of people too, but I would like to create this compilation myself for my own use, using my own records and using the same versions as on this double LP.
