Shadows calendar (dream)

Postby drakula63 » Tue Jun 30, 2020 10:24 am

I was perusing ebay yesterday evening and, perhaps inevitably therefore, I had a strange dream last night in which I discovered a Shadows calendar at one of those pop-up calendar shops that usually appear in the autumn. Anyway, I can't remember anything about said calendar, apart from the fact that it was pretty basic and I remember thinking "I could do better than this."

Anyway, I was thinking about it this morning and it suddenly occurred to me that the Shads made TWELVE original studio albums for Columbia/EMI during the 1960s and 1970s. So, this would be just perfect for a 12 month calendar; each page featuring one album. Maybe each month could also feature some smaller photos taken during the relevant year and a bit of trivia, etc. The front cover could, perhaps, feature the cover of either The Shadows Greatest Hits or The Shadows 20 Golden Greats.

OK, it's unlikely to happen... but I don't think any of us were really expecting the nice surprise that we got back on May 1st. Anyway, I'd buy it - and maybe more than one copy too!

The Dreams I Dream, eh? :D

That's a great idea. I'd buy some too. Let's hope someone might take it up .
Cheers,

I like your idea. This is a company that I have dealt with in recent years, which could possibly advise on the feasibility of such an undertaking. Perhaps it might be worth making contact with them...

If I had the money (I'm not sure what it would cost, but probably more than I have at the moment!), I can assure you that I would make 100% certain that it happened. I imagine it would be possible to produce a private (not for sale) calendar using any images one liked, but to do it commercially would be expensive.

Very possible, no more expensive than a shop bought calendar, and every bit as good in terms of quality :D . I've done it numerous car calendars along these lines in the past.
