Description:

The UK's Legendary Live Music Show From 1971 to 1987, Tuesday nights in the UK meant The Old Grey Whistle Test, the live music program that ended the broadcast day for the BBC. The list of performances from The Old Grey Whistle Test is a treasure trove from across the musical spectrum, rock, blues, R&B, punk. You name the genre, it was represented on The Old Grey Whistle Test.

Volume three raids the BBC archives for more vintage performances from the top acts of the day, including Jackson Browne, Roger Daltrey, Joe Jackson, King Crimson, Supertramp, B.B. King, Simple Minds, Humble Pie and many more. Roger Daltrey himself introduces his performance of "Giving It All Away," and presenters Mark Ellen and David Hepworth provide hilarious and insightful commentary on all the performances, looking back on the history of one of the most remarkable franchises in the history of music.

Features:

  • Commentary From Whistle Test Presenters Mark Ellen, David Hepworth And Andy Kershaw.
  • Reminiscences On Their Whistle Test Performances By Roger Daltrey, Jools Holland, Rick Wakeman, Bob Geldorf, Roddy Frame And Others
