IN the 90s i played in a tribute band that was used often as a backing band for brit rock and roll stars of the 60's. I met and worked with many and at 25 it was great experiance. I was lucky enough to work along side Jet harries who played bass on all those huge shadows hits. he was playing guitar in the 90s. He was a great guy, and a sad loss to the bass world, but his playing will be heard for many decades to come. RIP Jet harries.
The original recording was done at the EMI Abbey Road Studio in London. Singer-guitarist Joe Brown had bought an Italian-built guitar echo chamber that he didn't like and gave it to Hank Marvin who developed a distinctive sound using it and the tremolo arm of his Fender Stratocaster. Bruce Welch borrowed an acoustic Gibson J200 guitar from Cliff Richard, the heavy melodic bass was by Jet Harris, percussion was by Tony Meehan and Cliff Richard, who played a Chinese drum at the beginning and end to provide an atmosphere of stereotypically Native American music.
