Things Found on my Local's Jukebox # 150 Cliff Richard & The Shadows

'and the silver stream, is a poor man's wine...'

Cliff, despite spending most of his long career sailing straight down the middle of the road in terms of his records had a few, definite golden moments. This was one of them, giving a great impression of what it must have felt like to be young and happy in Britain in 1966, (though it actually sounds as if it should have come out a few years earlier, perhaps an indication that Cliff and The Shadows had become stranded by the incoming tide of beat groups). Still, it sounds just great. A slice of '63 in '66!
