SAS Band: California Man ft. Roy Wood

#83: Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! I was having a bit of a sift through the bargain bin at my local Morrisons (or 'Dorisons' as I call it!) the other week and I came across a rather interesting DVD priced at just £2! "Spike's All Star SAS Band" (ILC Music #DVD2418, 2003) features a great line up of British musicians and well known singers including our very own Roy Wood.
Yours Truly KJS  has (at the "Time" of writing) absolutely no post-ELO live footage of Roy Wood on DVD so it was no hard decision to buy this live concert recording and have a blast. It features Roy doing a great live rendition of "California Man" - one of the biggest and best hits of The Move. There is indeed nothing like having a good rummage and finding a gem. I do remember finding a "Xanadu" as well as a great live China Crisis DVD in the same place last year for just a couple of quid. Hopefully, there are still a few more copies of this DVD out there.

It's a great live DVD recording and includes not a few 'extras'. It's been a while since I went to a record fair and uncovered one of my legendary scoops! Those were the days ...

Until next "Time" in the ELO (and related) Universe ... KJS ... 27-Jan-2010


  1. Keith 'Super Scoop' Sinclair strikes again!.

  2. There are at least two audience videos of the Roy Wood Army show (with the luscious Naylor Twins) at the Village Underground, NYC in 2003(?), both pretty good quality, several clips of one are on YouTube - "Blackberry Way" and "Christmas" etc. Great shows, 'cept Roy was a little under the weather (I got him so hot lemonade which is always good for a cold and sore throat) Really drew out the old faithfull... It was his first NYC since a horrible Wizzard show in the 70's.
