A standalone group in their own right, The Shadows have always been closely associated with Cliff Richard from the early days when they were called The Drifters.
In this pop art print inspired by the film musical “Wonderful Life”, The Shadows line-up features the core members Hank Marvin and Bruce Welch along with Brian Bennett and John Rostill.
The Shadows appeared with Cliff in “The Young Ones”, “Summer Holiday”, and “Wonderful Life”, as well as the earlier film “Expresso Bongo”, and later as puppets, or rather supermarionation figures, in Gerry Anderson’s “Thunderbirds Are Go” film.
The Shadows wrote the iconic theme music for the British film noir “The Frightened City” starring Herbert Lom, John Gregson, and Sean Connery the year before his first appearance as James Bond. The main theme from the Brit Noir film was a chart hit for The Shadows.
