This review is from: The Old Grey Whistle Test 2 [DVD]  (DVD)
After some initial hesitation, curiosity finally got the better of me and being pleasantly surprised by Vol. 1, I decided to take a chance with this one too. Overall, I'm glad I did because in spite of some appalling dross (Loggins & Messina, OMD and The Pet Shop Boys), there are a few true gems here that I doubt you'd be able to find anywhere else.
For me, the performances by Argent, Montrose, Be Bop Deluxe (who's music I've never actually liked) and Siouxsie & the Banshees are the main highlights. But even these are totally eclipsed by the truly sublime performance of "Don't Believe A Word" by "Gary Moore & Friends" (the latter mainly comprising other members of Thin Lizzy). It's worth buying for this alone.
Let's just hope that Vol. 3 offers up some of the more interesting bands that others have mentioned. As is the way of these things,in the end it simply comes down to personal taste...
