Meeting with the Shadows
"At long last, and much to the delight of Shadows fans all over the world, we are proud to present the extremely rare Italian edition of Meeting with the Shadows, originally released only for the Italian market in 1962. Meeting with the Shadows was the first Shadows LP to find its way over the Alps, but unlike in every other country, in Italy the LP itself was actually adapted for the local market, where it was released with new sleeve art and a different track list, considered at the time to be better suited to Italian taste. The resulting album was a compilation of seven singles (including two number one hits, six tracks from their first LP, The Shadows, and three B sides), all from the first two years of their career. Only ever released in Italy, and never re-released on CD, this album - now reissued in a deluxe mono edition on 180 gram virgin vinyl with an embossed cover and attached bonus 'picture' CD in stereo - is highly sought after by collectors. In addition, the mono version of the original record has not seen the light for over fifty years! Regarding the cover art, this was one of the first times that guitarists in Italy were able to actually get a glimpse of the infamous red Fender used by Hank Marvin, and predictably it caused a peak in Fender guitar sales"
