  • In 1965 The Stones picked up NME awards for Best New GroupBest British R’n’B Group and Best New Disc Or TV Singer. They celebrated with a gig at the Wembley Empire Pool where their live prowess could clearly be heard, despite the screams of 10,000 highly-energized fans. Everybody Needs Somebody To Love was performed at a slower pace than usual and formed a medley with Pain In My Heart. Around and Around featured a pair of densely interwoven guitars whilst The Last Time benefited from distinctive Keith Richards backing vocals.
  • The NME called it “the greatest pop show in the world” and who are we to argue. The 3 ½ hour show was witnessed by 10,000 fans at Wembley’s Empire Pool who saw The Animals, The Bachelors, Cilla Black, Georgie Fame & The Blue Flames, Wayne Fontana & The Mindbenders, Freddie & The Dreamers, Herman's Hermits, The Ivy League, Tom Jones, The Kinks, The Moody Blues, The Rockin' Berries, The Rolling Stones, The Searchers, The Seekers, Sounds Incorporated, Dusty Springfield, Them & Twinkle. The Beatles performed just five songs.

    All tracks recorded at Congresgebouw, The Hague on 28.02.69 for Dutch TV except side two tracks 3-6 recorded at Njardhallet, Oslo on 3.11.69 for Norwegian TV. Sound quality: Despite careful remastering, the tracks from The Hague tend towards the trebly; the Oslo tracks are of better quality but are not soundboard recordings. Peter Green - guitar, vocals Jeremy Spencer - guitar, maracas, vocals Danny Kirwan - guitar, vocals, lead vocals* John McVie - bass Mick Fleetwood – drums Sleevenotes: Milton Schlitz The first part of this record is devoted to Fleetwood Mac in concert at The Hague on the evening of February 28th 1969. By starting at the unusually early time of 7.15 the band were also able to fit in a second performance at midnight in Amsterdam, 66 km away. Opener One Sided Love is a cautiously paced Danny Kirwan original that was not recorded in the studio. Stop Messin’ Around is a co-write between Peter Green and manager Clifford Davis, here using his C.G Adams pseudonym. Taken at a fast shuffle the song showcases some wildly exciting guitar interplay between Green and Kirwan. San Ho-Zay is a Freddie King instrumental from 1961 which never appeared on a Fleetwood Mac LP. Albatross is enthusiastically received: released as a single the previous November it reached Number Two in the Norwegian singles chart. The pounding cover of Freddy Cannon’s Tallahassie Lassie gives the Flamin’ Groovies 1972 version some serious competition. A raucous Blue Suede Shoes puts Jeremy Spencer in the spotlight: some very authentic backing vocals fail to completely mask some dodgy Spencer vocal improvisation. The broadcast ends with a snippet of Twist and Shout that sounds more like the Clash than the Beatles. The four songs included here were recorded in front of an all-seated and somewhat sedate audience for Norwegian TV during November 1969. I’m Worried is an Elmore James number, otherwise unrecorded by the band. Like It This Way never featured on a Fleetwood Mac studio LP but here showcases the ability of Danny Kirwan and Peter Green to trade call-and-response guitar riffs in a way that would be copied (badly) by many other bands. When Kirwan breaks a string Green plays a solo electric version of The World Keep On Turning originally recorded on the band’s self-titled debut LP. Rattlesnake Shake was the first single released from third album Then Play On but it did badly on both sides of the Atlantic, causing Oh Well to be released as a much more successful follow up. Rattlesnake Shake proved to be a very popular live number with a powerful riff, an undulating rhythm and risqué lyrics. Whilst this is a relatively compact version, the song could be open-ended as Mick Fleetwood explained. "It incorporated the freedom to go off on a tangent, to jam. We learned that as players. You hear that alive and well in the double-time structure that I put in at the end, which on stage could last half an hour. It was our way of being in The Grateful Dead.” The breadth of material - both covers and originals - is truly remarkable. We are delighted to finally bring some of these more obscure tracks to public attention: they are every bit as enjoyable as their better known siblings.

    Today, The Lovin’ Spoonful do not receive the same degree of attention or respect as Love, The Byrds or The Buffalo Springfield – no lengthy magazine retrospectives, no weighty box sets or ponderous TV documentaries. But during John Sebastian’s golden streak from 1965-1966, all seven of the Spoonful’s singles went top ten in the Billboard charts, an unprecedented achievement. Listening to these eighteen live TV recordings, the excitement they exude is contagious. The interview with Dick Clark does little to illuminate the band’s appeal, but then he was “trying to tell a stranger about rock’n’roll”.
