I will try to cut the show into pieces, just the interviews.
'Watching The River Flow' is part of my soundtrack as my dad had Dylan's Greatest hits vol 2 in 1971. He used to nod his head to that track. Infectious rhythm as I picked up on it and knew I liked it. Which probably then led me to Quo!
Nutbush City Limits I presume was Rick's. I think he paid homage to the style of the track with 'Falling In Falling Out' on NTL.
Cheers for that. Good to hear something that has been off the radar for a long time. Possibly on my own with this link but Rick's/ Quo's possible homage to 'Nutbush City Limits' in the guise of 'Falling In Falling Out' is more Tina Turn-ups than Bob Seger's down n' dirty version. Still have a soft spot (where?) though for 'Fallling In Falling Out' for some reason. Good to hear them chatting about 'Watching The River Flow'. Different ball game way back then and no iTunes etc etc and love how my 'heroes' somehow found the same obscure track that I heard as an 11- 12 year old through my dad's interest in Dylan at the time. Dad only listens to classical music now, the silly sausage.
I had this on tape and it's my favourite Rossi/Parfitt interview with Brian Matthew demonstrating how to interview properly.Parfitts lapse into a Henry Cooper impersonation is hysterically funny and his natural banter with Rossi when talking about Barbara Streisand is great stuff.If this somehow available it is by far and away the best Quo interview and is a must listen.
