Groundhogs – In Session 1970 – Past Daily Soundbooth

Next to Blue Cheer, The Groundhogs may very well have been responsible for some hearing loss on my part in the late 60s/early 70s. One of the best bands to listen to under headphones, cranked up past the threshold of pain – they were a sonic feast and were the...

World Of Twist – Live At Hull University – 1991 – Past Daily Soundbooth

To say World Of Twist were a short-lived band would be not entirely true. They had their beginnings in Manchester in the late 70s, and their first incarnation got started in 1984. But it wasn’t until 1990 that they emerged as a band to be reckoned with. Breaking away from...

Pop Goes The Beatles 1963 – Past Daily Soundbooth

While we’re on the subject of The British Invasion this week . . . I have rarely run Beatles material on Past Daily. No good reason – other than, the subject is covered so thoroughly by so many other sites, that I don’t think I can add anything that hasn’t...

The Kinks – In Session – August, 1965 – Past Daily Soundbooth

The Kinks in 1965, were one of the truly influential and pivotal bands in what became known as The British Invasion which began in earnest in 1964. They were a cut above many of the bands hitting the charts at the time. The songwriting of Ray Davies was poles apart...

Gerry & The Pacemakers – Live At The 1964 NME Poll Winners Concert – Nights At The Roundtable

If you like what we do and you want to help keep it going . . . .Become a Patron! I originally posted this in 2015 – much has changed since then, and Gerry is no more. I have to keep reminding myself the British Invasion (as it was known)...

The Ramones – New Years Eve 1978 – Past Daily Soundbooth: Holiday Edition

Ending 2020 with a concert by The Ramones, recorded at The Old Waldorf in San Francisco, New Years Eve 1978. What better way to drown out an otherwise strange, perplexing and frustrating year than with The Ramones. High voltage, non-stop and relentless, it’s the perfect antidote to a year with...

Amy Winehouse – Live At Hove Festival, 2007 – Past Daily Soundbooth

Amy Winhouse in concert tonight. Recorded live at The Hove Festival in Norway from 2007. Amy Winehouse had an astonishingly short career, having arrived and peaked within a period of less than five years, with the remaining years mired in drama and tragedy; ending in death in 2011 at 27...
