In Concerto 50

BBC Radio celebrated fifty years of the In Concert programme during November by repeating many shows from across the years as well as showing later shows which have been filmed. However only two shows from the 70s were included and Deep Purple’s excellent performances were not amongst them (Bill Withers anyone?). Meanwhile purists might argue that The Moody Blues and guests Trapeze actually began In Concert with their pioneering broadcast (produced by Jeff Griffin) in December 1969!

And is it really forty flipping years since someone not a million miles away from here sweated over a hot photocopier putting the visuals together for that first EMI double album release of this material? Apparently so.
