Haven't seen this since it was first aired which must be more than 10 years ago now - surely earlier than 1995? I do remember that this series was a "must watch". Some great music, and even if you didn't like that weeks act much, really informative and insightful. I can't recall all the acts that were covered, but the Deep Purple program was just brilliant. I wasn't much of a fan, but Spinal Tap had nothing on these fellas. Surprised the Beeb didn't do a few more series, but then again with most "stars" these days even more money grabbing and with hyper-diva-like pretensions, the contract negotiations would probably take 'till the 2100's, by which time the BBC will be run out of some students back room on 5p a week. I'm sure they would get a great response for re-runs of this or DVD release - same contract issues as the Whistle Test sessions probably. Shame.
