In common with all the other giants of the early- to mid-'60s British hit parade, the Shadows complemented their regular LP and 45 release schedules with a string of EPs, many boasting material unavailable in other forms, at the same time as highlighting some of the group's most legendary exploits.
Their appearance in the Thunderbirds Are Go movie, for example, spun off one of the most collectible of all band releases; soundtrack and theater appearances, too, were often immortalized on four-song 7" records.
The EP Collection, Volume One is, of course, the first of a series of CDs compiling the best of these releases -- a total of three eventually appeared. Familiar themes, of course, include the movie hits "Shane" and "Giant"; Autumn - The Shadows - The EP Collection Volume Two Bernstein 's "Tonight"; and their own "Finders Keepers," but everything here Touchstone - Stargazer (File) strike some kind of chord.
Indeed, if there is any single criticism to be leveled, it is that tracks appear with little or no regard to their original release. A chronological record would have been preferable, so, perhaps, would an opportunity to pick up only the songs which were exclusive to EPs, as opposed to mixing in those which did appear on other releases.
