You're cast ashore on a Desert Island which eight Shadows tracks would you choose to alleviate your sonic hunger?

Funnily enough, I think this question was asked before... about 20 years ago (for those of us old enough to remember!). Anyway...

1) Apache
2) Return to the Alamo
3) Love De Luxe
4) Honourable Puff Puff
5) Rockin' with Curly Leads
6) Spider Juice
7) The Rise and Fall of Flingel Bunt
8) Song for Duke

In no particular order...

Jigsaw
The Rise & Fall of Flingel Bunt (from Live in Japan)
Love De Luxe
Pinball Wizard/See Me, Feel Me
The War Lord
Equinoxe pt V (from the Shadows Live DVD)
Arty's Party (from Live at Abbey Road)
The Themes from Eastenders and Howard's Way (so that when I'm feeling particularly down about being stranded on a desert island, I can remind myself that the days where I don't have to listen to that are better than the days where I do)

As with Martcaster Jnr, I would choose the opening track from "Rockin' With Curly Leads", but I would use it as my first choice. No track ever kicked off an album - or eight track CD-R - in better style.

Pinball Wizard / See Me, Feel Me
Wonderful Land
Mustang
The Savage
Sweet Dreams
Peace Pipe
Granada
The Flyder And The Spy

Great topic - and not so easy... I have taken the liberty of adding a couple of solo Hank tracks ( I listen to his first solo record probably more than any other album ) - so I hope that is allowable!

In no particular order...

The Lost City
Wonderful Land
Goodnight Dick
Santa Ana
A Place in the Sun
Sacha
Turn around and touch me
Theme for young lovers

And if I had to choose just one to save...

The Lost City!
