“Apache” is an instrumental written by English composer Jerry Lordan. The original version was by guitarist Bert Weedon, but Lordan did not like the version. The Shadows recorded “Apache” in June 1960; when it was released the next month, their version topped the UK Singles Chart for five weeks. Bert Weedon’s original recording was released at the same time and reached number 24. What did you think? Please tell us in the comment section below and remember to sign up for our free newsletter.
