2007 digitally remastered 2CD set of complete tapes recorded for the BBC between 1976-78: a phenomenal debut for "It’s Rock’n’Roll", 3 memorable John Peel Sessions and a great trio of "In Concerts". Following the premature demise of legendary Rock’n’Roller Johnny Kidd in a 1966 auto smash, The Pirates’ were silent for a decade. In late 1976, the trio of Mick Green, Johnny Spence & Frank Farley regrouped for a one-off gig "for old time’s sake" and found that all the old magic was intact. They tried it out before a paying audience at Dingwalls, and within weeks were being hailed by NME’s Roy Carr as the best live band on the planet, a reputation they spent the next few years justifying. Regularly namechecked by Dr. Feelgoods’ Wilko Johnson as his major influence, they carved out a massive live following. Indeed, they were at their best onstage. Includes a booklet annotated by It's Rock N Roll host Geoff Barker with plenty of rare pics, memorabilia and exclusive interview material.
