This review is from: The Old Grey Whistle Test 2 [DVD]  (DVD)
More from the OGWT archives. Some good - stand up be Bop Deluxe ("Maid in Heaven"), Hall & Oates ("She's Gone"), Tom Verlaine ("Days on the mountain pt 1"), Prefab Sprout ("When love breaks down"), Joan Armatrading ("Love & Affection"), Patti Smith Group ("Because the Night"). Some exceptional stuff too: the Who with Keith Moon, one of the biggest bands to make it into the OGWT studio, mime along to "Relay" (Roger Daltry has some interesting things to say about those much-vaunted OGWT live performances). 1972 Roxy Music doing "Ladytron", all fake leopardskin and Bryan Ferry doing his best Rita Haywarth impression. Shane McGowan and the Pogues ("Dirty old town"). A glimpse of one of the best early 70s American hard rock bands, Montrose, with Sammy Hagar on vocals for "Bad motor scooter", long before he was tempted to join Van Halen. But some dreadful rubbish too (Loggins and Messina, Judee Sill, OMD, Heads Hand & Feet, the English whimsy of Kevin Ayres).
The menu is easier to negotiate this time, but the sound quality is a little dull at times. Some good interviews with performers from the OGWT era too - Bill Nelson, Roger Daltry, the ever-amusing Rick Wakeman.
