Proper music indeed...!!

This review is from: The Old Grey Whistle Test Live (Audio CD)
I have really enjoyed the previous OGWT album's but really wanted an album of fully live tracks, and what do you know... here it is.. OGWT Live really captures the essence of the show... the fact that the tracks are not perfect copies of the studio versions are great, they have a real energy and excitement .Really liking the diversity of the album, you get artists you would expect with Lynyrd Skynyrd, Van Morrison etc but also great artists like George Benson and Bill Withers that sound great on this album, there is also a bit of new wave, showing that the show didn't in fact hate punk and new wave as was the feeling. CD 3 is also interesting with some great tracks, Jailbreak being a highlight for me. Well done Bob Harris. Top marks.
