Babe Ruth - BBC Sessions 1973 - 74

This is a compilation of Babe Ruth session material recorded for the BBC  in 1973 & 1974 and subsequently presented by legendary British radio DJ Alan Freeman as part of his weekly 'rock show' sometime after, as the material was featured as one of his 'archive sessions'. Babe Ruth were actually banned from the BBC by producer Bernie Andrews whilst recording for the John Peel Show in 1974. Their official site does not explain why, however the ban was lifted in 1975, not that surprising when you consider the quality of their music. The band also appeared on the BBC's Old Grey Whistle Test weekly television programme both in 1973 and 1974 however I believe this material originated from radio sessions. The band have also been on a reunion tour this year with gigs this month in Canada. Source: BBC FM Radio Sound Quality: Very Good stereo mp3@192kbps. Genre: Prog Rock, Blues Rock. Session:   Taken from BBC studio sessions 1973 - 19
