The Old Grey Whistle Test

 

The Old Grey Whistle Test DVD coverGet Hooked

A friend of mine from London recently introduced me to The Old Grey Whistle Test (“OGWT”), a live music performance show that was broadcast from 1971 to 1987. This British show featured a variety of major and lesser-known performers representing various genres of music.

It’s easy to spend hours entranced by a variety of performances. Lucky for us, highlights from the show are collected in three DVD volumes, all owned by SMCL and available for checkout.

Big Stars

OGWT featured exciting performances from huge stars like John Lennon, Bob Marley & The Wailers, The Who, B. B. King, Bruce Springsteen, Elton John, Curtis Mayfield, Lynyrd Skynrd, and many more!

Cult Classics

Some of my absolute favorite OGWT performances feature “cult classic” groups such as the Jesus and Mary Chain, Roxy Music, the New York Dolls, Orange Juice, PIL, the Adverts, Tubeway Army, and Judas Priest.
