I was 10 in 1979 and for 2.5 hours I was transported straight back there. That was one brilliant episode of the Rage Vault.
Thank You Rage. You can play a Nick Cave special if this is the compensation.

There are some seriously rare clips amongst that lot. Was Kelly Marie a promo or TV performance, that is one I have never seen a clip for other than the European TV performances on-line. John Stewart - never seen before, nor Exile. Robert John, Doobies and Dean Friedman as well. I think Julie Covington was shown previously, but another long-forgotten track too.
There have been a few nights this year with rare clips, I think there was some from 1978 a while back too. And the odd other thing here & there.
I certainly hope all this was recorded, as I still dont have any recording facilities since moving to the country 4 years ago.
Kelly Marie was a promo I think but could have been a studio clip. They were mostly promos although a couple were from TV shows. Motels and Judie Tzuke were Countdown performances.
I did record the entire show and decided to keep the lot so put it across two DVDs....I'm not into clouds, HDs and whatever other digital storage systems there are.
There was another 70s Vault in about August when they did the Captain + Tenille tribute.
I missed catching up with you last Summer, but we certainly will this time round. Will contact you soon. Cheers Regards Brett
I edited my recording of this VAULT on Friday (28 June). I had not read the playlist since recording it in the first place and I had not watched it previously. At the moment, I am in a music mood so I'm playing every song as it pops up before saving it. In other words, I set my start point, play the song then set my end point.
Anyway, as you can see from the playlist, I eventually got to this song:
ADRIAN MUNSEY The Lost Sheep
Now I'll bet everyone here had the same reaction of "What the f**k is this?"
I had a different reaction: "Oh! I have this on a DVD!"
Yes, you read that right.
I got a DVD from the UK called "Oh, Please Yourself: Frankie Howerd At ITV" from Network. The special features are both of Frankie's appearances on the London Weekend Television talk show hosted by Russell Harty. The DVD includes the full shows in both cases, not just the Frankie Howerd interviews.
The second one, from 14 April 1979, features Charlton Heston as his first guest, a performance by bleater Adrian Munsey and then the interview (and a song) from Frankie Howerd. They played the performance of "The Lost Sheep" which is from this episode. But the DVD uses the LWT master tape so it is in much better condition than what the ABC played - plus Russell interviews the guy after the "song" to ask what made him choose that direction.
It's all in good fun, but, seriously, what were they thinking including that?
Anyway, here is the entire episode of the Russell Harty show if you's want it
MP4 - 720x560 - 50min - 481MB
OK, it's been 18 months. I've had to clear space on my Google Drive account, so I've deleted that Russell Harty video. I've put the sheep segment on YouTube, but if anybody likes talk shows and wants the whole thing, contact me and I'll arrange something.
