Bump. If something's worth saying, it's worth saying twice.
Yes, Sandy, I'm very envious. That sounds like my kind of show. I give Filmore East a frequent play; you can't beat it. I think I played the vinyl version to death all those years ago.
Sweet Home Alabama: The Southern Rock Saga with contributions from the survivors of those crazy times, including Gregg Allman, REM's Mike Mills, Doug Gray, Al Kooper, Bonnie Bramlett, Charlie Daniels etc. @ 9.pm
Southern Rock at the BBC featuring performances from Ozark Mountain Daredevils, Delaney & Bonnie with Eric Clapton, Dickey Betts from the Allman Brothers Band, the Marshall Tucker Band, Black Oak Arkansas, the Charlie Daniels Band, Greg Allman with then-wife Cher, Edgar Winter and, of course, Lynyrd Skynyrd
OGWT: Lynyrd Skynyrd in Concert. I remember watching the original broadcast of this and it’s a classic and not to be missed. Freebird seemed to go on forever.
Macon Whoopee (very droll ) featuring Wet Willie, Marshall Tucker Band, Dickey Betts, Bonnie Bramlett and Stillwater. It will be great to see some footage of Wet Willie. I have a couple of their live albums, but have never seen them play. This will probably be a first in the UK.
