David Bowie – Queen Bitch on the Old Grey Whistle Test

This is a live BBC television look from 1972 on a show Named the Old Grey Whistle Test. This was a show that had performances from all the most well-known acts of the time. Bowie looks great and sounds far better. I have much more of this show as well.

Al Stewart – The Old Grey Whistle Test – The Year Of The Cat

The performance of Al Stewart: The Year Of The Cat, It’s from the UK tv show The Old Grey Whistle Test, in 1976. Al Stewart – The Year Of The Cat (1976) On a morning from a Bogart movie In a country exactly where they turn back time You go strolling by way of the crowd like Peter Lorre Contemplating a crime She comes out of the sun in a silk dress running Like a watercolour in the rain Do not bother asking for explanations She’ll just tell you that she came In the year of the cat. She doesn’t give you time for questions As she locks up your arm in hers And you follow ’till your sense of which direction Entirely disappears By the blue tiled walls near the marketplace stalls There is a hidden door she leads you to These days, she says, I feel my life Just like a river running via The year of the cat She looks at you so cooly And her eyes shine like the moon in the sea She comes in incense and patchouli So you take her, to uncover what’s waiting inside The year of the cat. Nicely morning comes and you’re still with her And the bus and the tourists are gone And you’ve thrown away the choice and lost your ticket So you have to stay on But the drum-beat strains of the night remain In the rhythm of the new-born day You know sometime you are bound to leave her BUt for now you are going to remain In the year of the cat.
