The Hunters tabs
This is a new section devoted to 60s instrumental band The Hunters who, as well as being Dave Sampson's backing group(with hit record "Sweet Dreams"); occasionally backed Cliff Richard when the Shadows were unable to appear; they also toured as backing group for visiting American artists. The Hunters' instrumental singles of the time: TEEN SCENE, GOLDEN EARRINGS and THE STORM sadly didn't quite sell enough to reach the charts but nevertheless became firm favourites with guitarists and instrumental groups right up to the present time. Lead guitarist Brian Parker's sound was a Fender Jazzmaster, which made a change from the ubiquitous and much-loved Fender Stratocaster. Sadly Brian Parker(of Unit 4+2's hit "Concrete and Clay") and bassist John Rogers, died some years ago but their music lives on; this is a tribute to one of the 60s finest British instrumental groups; more will be added to this section in due course.
