Sounds Of The Seventies

by | 16th, May 2003

‘GREAT news in the Independent! Chief Reporter Terry Kirby reports that ”a lost archive of live recordings by some of the biggest names in rock music of the 1970s and 80s is to be released on CD after more than 600 forgotten tapes were uncovered at two radio stations”.

Little Jimmy Krankie must be nearly 15 by now

And what treasures have been unearthed in the vaults of Radio Clyde and Radio Forth (for it is they)? Nazareth unplugged? The Krankies live at Hampden Park?

We can hardly contain our excitement as we skim the article for details.

Shortage of space prevents us from listing these historic gems in full. Instead, we quote Richard Findlay, chief executive of Scottish Radio Holdings. ”It is a real time capsule with some great performances,” he says.

”It’s unique. We’ve got one tape which has 60,000 people singing along to Rod Stewart doing ‘Sailing’.” It doesn’t get better than that, does it?

Place your order now, to avoid disappointment.
