UNRELEASED OLD GREY
WHISTLE TEST - 9 DVD SET
The Old Grey Whistle
Test first went on air in September 1971 and became one of the most influential music shows for a generation. When the Old Grey Whistle Test went on air in 1971 it was unique. In a world accustomed to Top of the Pops, here was a show on which the bands performed album tracks and were interviewed after they had played. This was before the days of miming. The music was live and, since the idea was to air new sounds, many of the bands were making their first
television appearance. Here we have a set of 9 DVDs featuring rare performances from the show's 16 year run.
