Hank Marvin is well-known as the lead guitarist for Britain's No. 1 instrumental group, The Shadows, who also served as the backing group for Cliff Richard.
The Shadows disbanded after the hits stopped in the late 1960s, although the group remained active off and on until what was billed as the Final Reunion Tour in 2009-10.
Marvin also had a fairly busy recording career outside The Shadows, beginning his solo output in 1969, during that first Shadows' hiatus, with the self-titled LP pictured above. It went to No. 14 on the U.K. chart.
The music on Hank Marvin is easy listening for the most part, with covers of recent hits like Aquarius, Lara's Theme and This Guy's in Love With You interspersed with a few originals. Here's Marvin's take on a familiar movie theme.
The Hank Marvin LP has received two releases on CD, both of which are out of print. The first, in 1994, came from the See For Miles label and had eight bonus tracks.
Four years later EMI came out with its own version with the original cover art and 10 bonus tracks. Both CDs are hard to come by, with the See For Miles release (shown above) commanding ridiculously high prices.
However, the EMI version is available as a download and used copies of the original vinyl LP appear to be plentiful and cheap.
This is one of the bonus tracks that's included on both CD reissues:
