CLIFF RICHARD & THE SHADOWS ON RADIO LUXEMBOURG



#21: I'LL SEE YOU IN MY DREAMS
(Gus Kahn/ Isham Jones)
1962

Cliff sang this old standard on the 'Me And My Shadows' shows during mid 1961. He recorded the track at EMI's Abbey Road Studios on 4 May 1961 along with three other songs with a 'dream' theme for inclusion on the EP of the same name released in November that year.

ALL I DO IS DREAM OF YOU was also recorded the same day and this song featured in the Luxembourg radio shows around the same time. Both titles are given a jazzy style interpretation with Jet Harris' bass very much to the fore. The other two songs on the Dream EP Dream and When I Grow Too Old To Dream were not performed on the 'Me And My Shadows' Luxembourg shows.

The quality of the recording is only fair but is constant throughout without any interference marring the broadcast.

MC: did Hank nurse a secret desire to play in a dance band? Well, probably not, but he does an fair imitation of the type here as also on [#02] All I Do Is Dream Of You. The RL cut, adorned with assorted whistles and crackles, and going the rounds it seems reproducing at a variety of speeds, was very similar in approach to the EP track.
