EC played a Whistle Test Special for BBC's magnificent 'Old Grey Whistle Test' series on 'Jubilee Tuesday 1977' (HRH The Queen's 25th year at the helm) and (one hour of) the concert was broadcast live. I watched it as a teenager and it was - at the time - some of the best live music I'd ever seen & heard. Magical.
In recent years I'd always hoped it might be released as a DVD from the archives. Some tracks have appeared on various BBC compilations but not (AFAIK) the whole show. Imagine my surprise, therefore, to find this unwanted gem in a local charity shop for the princely sum of 50p (*) !
I just knew it was a good idea to hang on to that steam-powered hunk of junk that is our VHS
It's been posted many times before and is probably the best known of the performances from this concert but for anyone new to this gig here's EC's classic live version of 'I Shot The Sheriff';
