  • Description

    Guitar Instrumentals became hugely popular in the US and the UK in the late '50s, following the arrival of Rock & Roll, and Europe was quick to follow suit, notably Scandinavia. It all cranked up a couple of notches following The Shadows' success with 'Apache' in 1960, and by the following year Europe was awash with Shads' clones.

    This compilation presents the sound of Instro Europe, predominantly during 1961 and 62, from seven different countries, with an emphasis on Scandinavia and Denmark.

    Few of these discs were issued in the UK at the time, a noble exception being The Spotnicks, from Sweden, who of course enjoyed success here.

    Yet these records sound every bit as good as those recorded by their UK counterpoints.

    If you've never heard much Eurotwang before, this is the place to start... you'll love The Jumping Jewels, Die Playboys, Les Fantomes, The Cliffters, etc.
