A set of 5 CDs, recorded live at Zigzag magazine's fifth anniversary concert, held at The Roundhouse on Sunday afternoon and evening, 28 April 1974, complete with a 32 page booklet celebrating the occasion.
In 1974, Zigzag, the UK's first monthly rock magazine - much imitated but never surpassed - became five years old, and to celebrate this auspicious landmark the magazine's founders Pete Frame and John Tobler organised a concert at London's Roundhouse. And not just any old concert.
This momentous occasion, indelibly engraved in the memories of all who attended, featured a choice sample of Zigzag's favourite bands and artists: STARRY EYED & LAUGHING, CHILLI WILLI & THE RED HOT PEPPERS, HELP YOURSELF, JOHN STEWART with ARNIE MOORE & PETE THOMAS
and, topping the bill, MICHAEL NESMITH with RED RHODES
Not surprisingly it was a day of peerless music, which, thankfully, was all faithfully recorded. Stored away and largely forgotten for nigh on thirty-six years, those dusty and flaking tapes have now been unearthed and their sound quality transformed by a process akin to alchemy into nuggets of audio and artistic perfection.
Zigzag magazine may no longer exist in the physical sense but, in the hearts and minds of anyone who is entranced and transported by this music, its spirit lives on . . . and, although equally dusty and increasingly flaky, we, the grateful guardians of that inextinguishable flame, are extremely chuffed to be able, at long last, to make these historic recordings available in a manner that befits their status.
