Indeed, at their shows, audiences were usually packed in too closely to dance, and the ten pounds they made each week between them in the beginning was serious money for three amateur musicians.

In the course of their 2I's gigs over the next few weeks, they picked up one fan, John Foster, who became their first manager, and another, Ian Samwell , who joined them as a guitarist -- interestingly, they had no bassist in their lineup and didn't for quite a while, which set them apart from other bands but didn't seem to impede their progress.
The first of two name changes came up when they got an outside booking in Derbyshire -- at that point, Foster decided that "the Drifters " wasn't impressive enough as a name by itself, and wanted their vocalist to have lead billing. A little more than 40 years later, he was Sir Cliff Richard.
By that time, the group was a quintet of Richard who still played guitar as well as singing, in the early days , Mitham , Samwell , Ken Pavey on third guitar , and Terry Smart -- and still no bassist.

And fortunately for all concerned, the record was "flipped" and "Move It" became the A-side. The record, released in late August, reached number two on the charts, and as it was climbing the listings, Cliff Richard began a series of appearances on the television show Oh Boy! All of these events -- the recording contract, the single, the chart placement -- ensured Richard 's emergence to stardom, but the Drifters , at first, were another matter.
Although he was willing to use the group on Richard 's recordings, Paramor already felt compelled to use session musicians to enhance their sound in the studio; and as their audience grew along with the demand for shows in bigger and more competitive venues, it was clear that the group would have to adapt. It was John Foster who, in the summer of , went to the 2I's in search of a Liverpool guitarist-and-singer he'd heard about named Tony Sheridan -- he wasn't there, but Foster did find a pair of virtuoso guitarists named Hank Marvin and Bruce Welch ; they were already members of a top skiffle group called the Chesternuts, and had made a couple of records.
Richard also abandoned his guitar, just as Elvis Presley had, and found the experience liberating, as his stage moves became all the more intense and downright provocative, so much so that they were regarded as highly controversial in the press. And the shows filled up and the bookings and the fees skyrocketed -- their sound was still a bit raw on-stage, but even that worked to their advantage at the time, giving the music still more authenticity than was typical for the time in England.
And in early , Tony Meehan , a drummer who was already making a good living in his mid-teens as a session musician, replaced Terry Smart, the last of the original Drifters.
This was the version of the group that was finally signed in their own right to EMI. An album followed in February of , cut live before an audience of extremely fervent fans at Abbey Road's Studio No. And beyond Richard 's fame, Marvin , Welch , Harris , and Meehan all became stars in their own right, with Harris and Meehan regarded as one of the best rhythm sections in the business, with a huge fan following of their own, while Marvin and Welch were directly responsible for the sales of tens of thousands of electric guitars to teenagers.
A story out of the early history of the Beatles illustrates their dominance -- John Lennon and Paul McCartney , both in their mid-teens at the time, knew that Richard and the Shadows were to appear on television one evening, and both were watching from their respective homes to look at Hank Marvin to see exactly how the intro to "Move It" was played.
There was an effort early in to push Richard as a star in his own right, separate from the band, but it didn't come from the music side of the entertainment business -- rather, he was signed to play an important supporting role in the gritty juvenile delinquency drama Serious Charge. The band began to emerge as a recording act on their own while they were still known as the Drifters , in January of , with the single "Feelin' Fine," a group vocal effort, the B-side of which, "Don't Be a Fool with Love," even featured them doing Belmonts -style harmony singing.
All three were ignored by the public. And then, in June of , they recorded "Apache," an instrumental composed by Jerry Lordan that had previously been done by guitarist Bert Weedon -- and it topped the charts, riding the number one spot for five weeks. Over the next three years, they charted high with the singles "Man of Mystery," "F.
And "Wonderful Land" also demonstrated a special command of orchestral timbres in juxtaposition with electric instruments one must also ask how much credit producer Norrie Paramor , who had cut his share of instrumentals as a recording artist, deserves for some of these successes. The Shadows had also developed a stage presentation behind Richard in which they did little steps in unison. Other groups of the time, seeking success, emulated them -- and you can see the movie A Hard Day's Night poking fun at the band choreography, when the Beatles are clowning in the TV studio.

In the fall of , Tony Meehan left the band, owing to his unhappiness at the constant touring, and was replaced by Brian Bennett , another 2I's veteran, who had previously played with the house band on Oh Boy! These lineup changes were major events in the British music press at the time, and there was some question as to whether the Shadows could hold on to their audience -- especially when Harris and Meehan teamed together for a recording, "Diamonds," that bumped the Shadows' then current record from its chart position.
After a short transition period, however, the band found their popularity just as great as ever, and a string of hits followed across and beyond: "The Savage," "Guitar Tango," "Dance On," "Foot Tapper," "Atlantis," "Shindig," and "Geronimo.
