Tattie Bogle Apache recorded 60 years ago! (277* d) RE: Apache recorded 60 years ago! 21 Jun 20

Been following this tangled thread, if not saying much, but now prompted to pull out my copy of "The Shadows' Greatest Hits" - a compilation of those recorded between 1960 and 1962, with Apache is the first track on side 1.
I was 14 then, and as I said in a post above, and others have said too, it was like nothing ever heard before. Plenty of time, if I really have to, to develop more sophisticated tastes in guitarists in my next 60 years. 10 years on, I would have been listening to the likes of John Renbourn, Bert Jansch, Davy Graham, Ralph McTell. But at age 14, I was most likely more concerned with which one of the Shads was the best-looking (OK, Tony Meehan) than what guitar they played or tech stuff they used. I just LIKED IT!
FWIW the track list in this LP is:
Side 1
1. Apache
2. Man of Mystery
3. The Stranger
4. F.B.I.
5. Midnight
6. The Frightened City
7. Kon-Tiki
Side 2
1. 36-24-36.    (I was once!)
2. The Savage
3. Peace Pipe
4. Wonderful Land
5. Stars Fell on Stockton.      (Place name chosen as they were in panto there!!)
6. Guitar Tango
7. The Boys
8. Dance On
