The Shadows: Late Night Set/I Met A Girl (Epic 5-10020)

When The Shadows weren't backing Cliff Richard, they were off being Britain's answer to The Ventures. The only thing was The Ventures rocked a lot harder, but The Shadows had their moments, too. "I Met A Girl" is one of their rare vocal numbers and while it isn't bad, it isn't particularly memorable either. "Late Night Set," however, is a snazzy instro piece with a slammin' beat and powerhouse twangy guitar work. Now, THIS is the kind of thing we like The Shadows for and the more of this around, the better.
