The Shadows - "Rise and Fall of Flingel Bunt" + some lovely Burns guitars! Ah, call me mischievious if you will, but you didn't seriously think I was going to let Bertram get away unchallenged with that comment about The Shadows in previous post, did you? I don't care if they are old fashioned, I think their tunes are well worth a spin. I quite like this piece from Australian TV in 1967 from when the band were endorsing Burns guitars. And if you don't like that, then there's always the dancing girls.

  1. Hooray for the girls!

  2. I think the band are enjoying watching the girls too. haha!
    This was when Burns guitars where made in UK. They are now made in china now I beleive

  3. Havihe Shadowsng only discovered The Shadows in the last say 12 yrs. I am floored by the number of players they hav influenced. My current band has five or so songs in our setlist. And let me tell you some of the rhythm guitar parts are challenging.
    For a lesson in cool watch...

    The bass player was named Jet Harris ferchrisake.

    The steps, the dance steps. Love ya Bertram but respect the steps..

  4. Love those scrolled 3-on-a-side headstocks so much more than the Fenderesque on in the previous post!
