Elmer Gantry's Velvet Opera BBC Radio 1, UK January 27, 1968

"This session predates the first album by six months, and finds the band still relying on some excellent cover versions, as well as group originals. The line up was changeable. Colin Forster would be replaced for the second album by Paul Brett. Hudson and Ford spent a little time in the Strawbs before becoming very successful and commercial with their 'Hudson-Ford' collaboration."
Taken from the back cover of a bootleg LP.

If you haven't had a chance to listen to their first album. You can check it out HERE. I posted it awhile back, and it's definitely worth checking out. After doing that, or if you already have, this BBC session is the next place to take your head. I'd like to give a big Thank You to humanoidboogie, who took the time to share this with us. Humanoidboogie did a great job transferring and fixing it up for us.
