Hole. E. Crap.

Where's that from? Sounds like a BBC broadcast or something of that ilk.

Exactly that. A BBC session.

By the by, from the sound of that, it's the four-piece incarnation of The Move, with original singer Carl Wayne -- the guys who did SHAZAM.

Everything I've heard from that bunch -- including some of the TV stuff on YouTube -- is pretty staggering.

They do Rock & Roll Woman on that same session. And man, do I LOVE Shazam!

Hiya Sal,

There is actually still some BBC stuff to come.

I've unearthed two more lost sessions.

As Steve says, most of the BBC stuff was Shazam era, they appeared regularly across the BBC via Radio 1, local radio and the World Service.

Live they were bizarre, for a band that were providing so many hit singles, they concentrated their set on mainly covers, but they were inspired covers.

They were amazing live and although Looking On is one of my favourite albums ever, once Jeff Lynne had joined, they became primarily a studio band.

Great post.
