3.0 out of 5 stars Bit Of A Misnomer
There is some good stuff on here,that cannot be denied,but and it's a big but;none of these tracks are performances taken from TOGWT.So where is the connection to the show?There is any number of similar compilations around so there is nothing special about this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bob gets it right again.., 3 Jun 2013
This review is from: The Old Grey Whistle Test: The Anthems (Audio CD)
Now in it its 4th release Bob Harris's latest Old grey Whistle Test album is not called The Anthems for nothing. it's full of Anthems of the biggest OGWT artists , Queen, Tom Petty,Bob Dylan ,Fleetwood Mac. they are all on there as well as some acts from a litttle later in the shows life such as the Police, There are not that many live tracks on there but those that are on there are of the highest standard, the Who, The Kinks, Squeeze and the mighty Smiths all make live appearances.It seems that Bob has taken real care in coming up with the tracklisting with some real gems on there from Atlanta Rhythm Section,Santata and Boz Scaggs.. all artists which you wouldnt expect to find on any other compilation album.
Bob keeps rocking after all these years..

Just what I expected really but nice to have them all on one collection. Some of the tracks are louder than others.

A fab collection of songs by amazing artists, some tracks I'd never heard before and some strong favourites. If you're an ageing 70s rocker or hippy chick you'll love this

1.0 out of 5 stars WARNING!! NOT LIVE !! AVOID!!, 8 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Old Grey Whistle Test: The Anthems (Audio CD)
I should have read the fine print i suppose but i just assumed that
any collection with "the Old Grey Whistle Test" as its title would contain
LIVE PERFORMANCES from the television show of the same name.
Not so as this is simply the OGWT taking advantage of contractual provisions that allow
them to release a certain number of tracks from every OGWT performer (live or otherwise)..
Since most basic recording contracts allow the record company to license tracks to compilation
lps etc without compensation (this all under the guise of promotion)..

This collection is a small example of the slimy goo that passes for "business as usual" in the industry…
This release is to be avoided, its disappointing that such an excellent show would sully their name
with this sludge…

3.0 out of 5 stars Prog Rock, 19 Jun 2014

This review is from: The Old Grey Whistle Test: The Anthems (Audio CD)
Not a bad album for all of those who enjoy prog rock . Some of the tracks however would challenge that concept . It looks like it is bands of varied genre that appeared on TOGWT . Still worth listening to .
