The Old Grey Whistle Test
Old Grey Whistle Test - Anthems - Triple Cd
Please note this is a region 2 DVD and will require a region 2 (Europe) or region Free DVD Player in order to play. Celebrate the UK's seminal live music show with this fantastic 3 DVD Set. Includes Old Grey Whistle Test Volumes 1, 2 & 3. Launched in September 1971, it hosted performances from the most legendary bands and performers. Disc 1: Over 40 rarely seen performances are brought together in a four-hour film complete with memories of the show's former presenters: Richard Williams, Bob Harris, Annie Nightingale, David Hepworth, Mark Allen and Andy Kershaw.
Playing all 31 tracks on The Old Grey Whistle Test Volume 3 will make some viewers believe the producers are now beginning to scrape the bottom of the barrel; others will think that finally they're getting around to the good stuff. Given that the series somehow managed to take an enormous range of music on board while at the same time seeming entirely consistent (surely the secret of its success), there's evidence for both points of view.
