Bob Harris Compilations...

Bob Harris Presents...

The ‘Old Grey Whistle Test’ was first broadcast in September 1971, at the height of the Progressive Rock boom. It was fabulous. Musicians were pushing out the boundaries, stretching the technology of studio recording and stage presentation. The music had colour and invention and was great for television...lights, dry ice and massive solos.

This collection of album tracks and singles is mostly, but not exclusively, rooted in that ground-breaking time.

There are big hits from Free, Mott the Hoople and Argent and a totally underrated gem from Crazy Horse, alongside a couple of massive records from the early 80’s. There’s ‘Locomotive Breath’ from the mighty ‘Aqualung’ album and a track from Porcupine Tree, one of mine and Ian Anderson’s favourite bands. And, of course, there’s Yes and ELP.

A lot of the tracks are long...but then you would not expect anything else.
