Mesa Verde

“Mesa Verde” is an original instrumental intended to sound similar to something the Shadows might have recorded in the early to mid 1960s. In particular it is intended to evoke the style of the Shadows playing a Jerry Lordan composition with the addition of the Norrie Paramor Strings. Like “Atlantis”, “Mesa verde” is a famous “lost city”. With more than 5,000 sites, including 600 cliff dwellings, it is the largest archaeological preserve in the United States. Mesa Verde (Spanish for “green table”) is best known for structures such as Cliff Palace, thought to be the largest cliff dwelling in North America.
