The Old Grey Whistle Test

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
To longtime fans of the legendary BBC music series Old Grey Whistle Test, do not raise your hopes for this 2010 compilation: it does not feature live performances from the show, it rounds up 38 album cuts and hits from artists that appeared on the show during the '70s and early '80s. To be sure, this includes plenty of great music from everybody from the Faces to Television, Judee Sill to Warren Zevon, so anybody looking for a far-ranging sampler of the album-rock era will find this engaging.
