Useless information:

The instrumental Hit "Apache" was written by  Jerry Lordan and recorded by Hank Marvin and the Shadows in the U.K.  their biggest hit.

BUT the Danish guitarist Jorgen Ingmann had the U.S. hit due to low market penetration by the shadows in the U.S. and a dubious lawsuit from another band named the Shadows.

Apache has been recorded by most all Surf type instrumental bands, and by the Ventures (prior to the Surf Thing)  You can hear it EVERYDAY on a current TV commercial!
