Product Details

The British are way ahead of us when it comes to release vintage performances on DVD. The Old Grey Whistle Test got its name from a Tin Pan Alley test; it was said that agents would have the doormen for the building come in, listen to a song and see if it was worthwhile. The test was whether the "old grey" folks could whistle the tune. The Old Grey Whistle Test had a variety of different types of performers over the years. While rock did dominate it wasn't the only type of music presented. This DVD presents the following performances and performers: Alice Cooper-Under My Wheels Elton John-Tiny Dancer (solo) Curtis Mayfield- We Gotta Have Peace Randy Newman - Political Science Bill Whithers - Ain't No Sunshine Rory Gallagher - Hands Off Bob Marley & the Wailers - Stir It Up Roxy Music - Do The Strand (with Eno but lipsynched) The Edgar Winter Group - Frankenstein Captain Beefheart-Upon the My O My Little Feat- Rock 'n' Roll Doctor John Lennon - Stand By Me Lynyrd Skynyrd - Freebird Emmylou Harris - Amarillo Bonnie Raitt - Too Long At The Fair Tom Waits - Tom Traubert's Blues Talking Heads - Psycho Killer XTC - Statue of Liberty Blondie - I'm Always Touched By Your Presence, Dear Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers - American Girl The Police - Can't Stand Losing You Bruce Springsteen - Rosalita (filmed concert performance) Iggy Pop - I'm Bored The Specials - Message to Rudi The Damned - Smash It Up/I Just Can't Be Happy Today The Ramones - Rock 'n' Roll High School U2 - I Will Follow REM - Moon River/Pretty Persuasion
