andrew e Apache recorded 60 years ago! (277* d) RE: Apache recorded 60 years ago! 18 Jun 20

Loved The Shadows and HBM. Listening to them now in the car makes me wonder how they would have sounded with a more Rocky drummer. The Shadows with Keith Moon! For me the drumming really dates them, compared to music a few years later. There's a video on YouTube with Jet Harris and a band playing Apache, and the drumming does sound like an Native American Indian sound. I read that Tony Meehan, after he left The Shadows [and had a couple of hits with Jet Harris on Decca], became an A and R manager for Decca records. I wonder if he was there when Decca turned down The Beatles?
