GUEST,Rossey Apache recorded 60 years ago! (277* d) RE: Apache recorded 60 years ago! 21 Jun 20

What a load of pretentious twaddle has arisen out of the commemoration of an innovative and influential instrumental of its period. God knows what sick crap will come out when Hank or Bruce dies. They'll be moving on to Mike Oldfield next. Get a grip. Though Jerry Lordan wrote it, the Shads came up with the intro etc. translating a simple idea into the product. Also of course their producer Norrie Paramour. Just one of many great hits they had, 'Man of Hystery' 'FBI' ;The Savage' etc. Paramour later sent them on the smooth route with orchestration.. Numerous changes of line up on the bass but later the likes of Rostill and Welch also worked as writer/producers with Olivia Newton John (they'll be slagging her off next) responsible for her country period. But one thing begets another. It's just become a series of snobbish, irrelevant comments. No matter what you think it is a record released 60 years ago.. and like Beatles releases, had a lasting effect on other musicians. But to directly compare other styles and playing is nuts.
