Sounds Of The 70's (DVD)
If the 60's was the decade that gave birth to modern pop music then it was the 70's that had it all- from bubblegum to disco to hard rock.
When else could you see Donny Osmond, Marc Bolan, David Bowie and Thin Lizzy all on the same edition of Top of the Pops?
This fabulous series has delved into the archive to dig out glam rock classics from T Rex and Roxy Music, great rock performances from the likes of Rory Gallagher, Status Quo and Tom Petty and the emerging new wave and punk sounds of The Damned, The Jam, Siouxsie and the Banshees and Dr Feelgood.
It was an era when singles and the singles chart stopped being quite so important and albums-on good old vinyl-dominated hence bands like Supertramp and Lynyrd Skinyrd with their classic Freebird and then out went the old rock dinosaurs and in came the new wave of Blondie, Talking Heads, The Stranglers, the New York Dolls and even The Knack.
Every programme includes newsreel from the time, together with facts and information about the artists and the songs!
