An afternoon of pure nostalgia

Any non-Shadows fan look away now...
On Sky Arts 1, the Last Shadows Tour concert. Proving as if I didn't know just what a surprisingly skilful guitarist Hank Marvin really is.
I will forgive them their vocals (just).  Look at how many Cliff hits Marvin and Bruce Welch wrote. I will even overlook the ministry for silly walks.
Followed on Sky Arts 2 by that wonderfully eccentric pairing of Yehudi Menuhin and Stephan Grappelli for an enthralling hour.
Both shows brilliant in their own way. Pleased I recorded them, but if you get Sky Arts they will be on again soon.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

The Shadows last concert is on YouTube too. It's about 2.5 hours long. I play it every Christmas day to the surprise of some of my younger family members!  Cool
