I have the double dvd and its utterly marvellous - lots of beautifully shot great performances, also I just love Bob Harris' conspiratorial whisper.

This is a little silly, but it gives a good idea of the vaguely spooky, very 70's British tv atmosphere in the studio: the bits from 6.33 look straight out of a sci-fi movie!

one year passes...

Found the first two volumes of this in a 2/$10 bin today. I've been skipping around a bit, and recognize Bob Harris and Richard Williams from that old Paul Gambaccini Top 200 book.

That Beefheart clip is always on Whistle Test comps. Kind of sticks out like a sore thumb in a sea of badfinger boogie and prog in shiny lapels.
