Life Story: The Very Best of the Shadows

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Bruce Eder
This double-CD set looks generous enough and it is and sounds good enough and it's better than good in the audio department, but it also has a major flaw that listeners should know about -- it does not have any of their classic -'60s or '70s sides. Rather, this CD is drawn from the Shadows' '80s output and beyond, when Hank Marvin, Bruce Welch, and Brian Bennett, as the core of the band, were producing the material themselves.

The mix is a little more pop-oriented than fans of the group's early history may like, but overall this is a good -- if not complete or comprehensive -- look at the group's complete musical history as a self-contained unit. There is no annotation, alas, and in that aspect of its packaging this does have a somewhat threadbare feel.
