Apache vs Walk Don't Run

Post  felix on Fri Apr 22, 2011 9:44 am

Sadly, the discussion in this forum of the popular instrumental groups of the late 1950s/early 1960s didn't survive the deletion of ATU Mk I. No cached Ventures; no cached Shadows.

Still, before the Beatles and the Stones and the whole Mersybeat/beat combos/Brit invasion things took off in 1962/63/64, instrumental groups were regular occupants of the Hit Parade charts, on both sides of the Atlantic.

In the US, the Ventures ruled; in the UK, Cliff Richard's backing band, the Shadows were monarchs of the charts. Neither, it seems, influenced or was influenced by the other - they did their own rocking thing contemporaneously. But enough of that: listen to the music!

The Shadows - Apache (July 1960 - 5 weeks No.1 UK):


That's the original lineup, including the recently deceased Jet Harris on bass.

The Ventures - Walk Don't Run (July 1960 - No 2 US, No 8 UK):

By golly, Sir, I do believe I am! A data miner, me. Not very successful, though. No

(Ah, I was looking for 'Ventures' and 'Shadows'. Explains a lot.)
