Totally British: 70s Rock ‘n’ RollEpisode 1 of 2
Trawled from the depths of the BBC Archive and classic BBC shows of the day – Old Grey Whistle Test, Top of the Pops and Full House – a collection of performance gems from a totally rock ‘n’ roll early 1970s.
This was a golden era for British rock ‘n’ roll as everyone moved on from the whimsical 60s and looked around for something with a bit more oomph! In a pre-heavy metal world bands were experimenting with influences that dated back to 50s rock ‘n’ roll, whilst taking their groove from old-school rhythm and blues. It was also a time when men grew their hair long!
In a celebration of this era, we kick off with an early 1970s Badfinger number direct from the BBC library and continue the groove from the BBC vaults with classic rock ‘n’ roll heroes like Free, Status Quo, the Faces, Humble Pie and Mott the Hoople. Plus from deep within the BBC archives we dig out some rarities from the likes of Babe Ruth, Stone the Crows, The Sensational Alex Harvey Band, Man, Heavy Metal Kids and original rockers Thin Lizzy… to name but a few.
Sit back and enjoy a 60 minute nonstop ride of unadulterated Totally British 70s Rock ‘n’ Roll!
