    Looks very well put together -and only £16,49 0n Amazon too

  2. John Dotters says:

    £16.49 for a six cd set. Bargain!

  3. Hedley says:

    I’m onboard for Hank and The Shads. Time to play the Amazon game and lets hope that they have done a decent job with the mastering.

    Foot Tapper – You betcha. cliff !!!!

  4. Bill Darlington says:

    Or £12.99 from Sainsbury’s. (Or £36 on Amazon Marketplace for a used copy of the original release with 46 fewer tracks!)

    • Hedley says:

      Bill, excellent point, Sainsburys have been very competitive on price, the problem from my perch in Michigan is that they only ship to the UK….oh well, I guess I just wait for amazon.co.uk to be a bit more competitive.

  5. Hedley says:

    For those of us tracking on amazon.co.uk, they just dumped the price down to 12.61 pounds. Ordered and heading for Detroit

  6. jim says:

    just got the download from play.com for £12.99

    The ‘mono’ version of Mustang on disc 5 is actually in stereo.

    • Jim Nugent says:

      I had something to do with the compilation of this set. In particular, it was my suggestion that so many of the 1960s EP tracks and single B-sides should be included in their original mono mixes which had been ignored since the original vinyl releases. Additionally, the mono version of the 1965 LP “The Sound Of The Shadows” had never been re-released on CD – but this was now fixed.

      The mix of “Mustang” on disc 5 is most definitely mono (and not stereo). The stereo version (included on disc of the set) could not be more different.

      As a matter of interest, though, the tracks for the source EP (Mustang / Theme From Shane / Shotgum / Theme from Giant) were all produced from a single stereo master which was reduced to mono for the single-channel pressing. The EMI archives at Hayes contained a note from Norrie Paramor for the engineering branch to the effect that a mono msater tape was to be produced from the stereo master.

      I have found this site today – like no doubt many others, who heard about it on R4 “You And Yours”.
