    Obviously not the same Shadows that most of us know. Bob Luman had a great hit record called Let’s Talk About Livin’. One of my favorite songs.

  2. But that is James Burton playing lead guitar….

      Correct. From Wikipedia:
      For the Hayride, Luman formed a backup band called the Shadows, including James Burton on guitar, James Kirkland on bass and Butch White on drums. In 1957, the band signed with Imperial Records, where they recorded “All Night Long” and “Amarillo Blues.”[1]

      That same year, the band appeared on the Town Hall Party in Los Angeles, and appeared in the movie Carnival Rock, where they backed up David Houston.[1]
