BBC Sessions 1970-1972
Four songs long, and readily superceded by the official BBC package, this set nevertheless captivates as a stand-alone reminder of Argent at their most progressive peak.
The set opens with a piano and emotion-packed "Uranus," recorded for DJ Mike Hardings show in June 1971, then folds into a radically rearranged "Hold Your Head Up," from the Bob Harris show, the following year - faster and fussier than the familiar version, it demonstrates how swiftly Argent must have tired of playing their "greatest hit" the same way every night.
A heartfelt "Rejoice,"
from the bands first John Peel session (April 1972) captures Russ
Ballard at his most captivating, before a funky "Liar" (from
the same broadcast) wraps things up, with a reminder that Argent really
could rock out when they wanted to. -
