Live from Opry Hotel 1989
Did you know that later this month Willie Nelson will turn 80 years old? It’s even more incredible to think that he is the youngest member of his band! Surly this proves that the older generation have still got it. Willie has been making classic Country Music for years now, and his new album, Let’s Face The Music And Dance, stands testament to his enduring musical prowess.
For your pleasure and enjoyment today, we have Willie’s first hit in the UK. It charted at number 49 back in 1982, it only took 20 years to get recognised in the UK! Always On My Mind is forever a classic track, and a bit of a tearjerker, and this performance at the Opry Hotel in 1989 is a fantastic example of Willie Nelson at his best.
Live at Glastonbury Festival 2000
Having thoroughly enjoyed the Big Reunion these past few weeks, its hard not to feel somewhat nostalgic about the glorious 1990’s, and the incredible Pop Music that came from it. Today’s Press Rewind is a fantastic example of Brit-Pop, and a modern day guilty pleasure. I assure you, when this song comes on in the club, everyone is throwing some shapes.
Dancing In The Moonlight was Toploader’s biggest hit, and went on to feature in the Sainbury’s TV ad. Following the recent release of the Glastonbury 2013 festival line-up, we’ve been reviewing our favourite performances. And this Brit-pop cult classic ranks up there, somewhere near Jay-Z performing Wonderwall.
Hey there music fans! Not sure if you’re aware or not, but we here at Legacy are big Country Music fans. These past few weeks we’ve been busy with our Spotify Playlists, Facebook Page and Twitter account, check em out and subscribe! Recently we attended the Country2Country music festival at the O2 Greenwich, and enjoyed some stellar performances from Carrie Underwood.
Out this week is Brad Paisley’s new album Wheelhouse, so we decided to bring you one of his absolute classics. Listening through the expansive catalogue we decided there could only be one song that you should here, Brad calls it his ‘favourite song’ he has written. So enjoy this truly heartfelt performance of He Didn’t Have To Be.
Live at the Royal Albert Hall 24/2/1969
Celebrating the Physical release of the latest Jimi Hendrix Album, People, Hell & Angels, we’ve opened up a Pop-Up Store in 8 Ganton Street, London (just off of Carnaby Street). It’s full of wonderful merch, some you can’t get anywhere else, the entire Jimi Hendrix catalogue and even features a Fender plug and play area in the basement!!! Aren’t we good to you! The store closes this week on the 12th April, so we thought it was time for a reminder of how incredible Jimi was.
Here is Voodoo Child live from the Royal Albert Hall, arguable one of his best songs ever taken from an incredible London gig. Apologies for the Hippie-esque visual effects layered on the video while Jimi is laying down his epic Guitar Solo Powers, but it wouldn’t be Hendrix without it. Joe Satriani says the opening riff is one of his favourite Jimi riffs of all time, and you can see him speaking and playing here.
You’ve probably watched many videos of Jefferson Airplane performing live before, but you need to watch this.
This video of Grace Slick performing White Rabbit is perfection and well worth a watch. We’ve had it on repeat all afternoon, it’s that brilliant.
So, go on, treat yourself to this live performance of the band’s classic track, as performed live at none other than Woodstock, on 17th August 1969.
Oh, and here’s a pretty cool photo of the band chilling out on stage, that makes us want to be part of their gang too…
Here’s a performance from The Clash for no real reason, other than it’s brilliant.
