Today I have a BBC tape that might be new to a lot of you.
Here we have 3 bands for this BBC event.
Lene Lovich whose birth name is Lili-Marlene Premilovich was born in Detroit, moved to England at the age of 13. She first gained attention in 1979 with the release of her hit single "Lucky Number", which peaked at number 3 on the UK Singles Chart and made her a leading figure of the new wave music scene. She released two more albums, Flex (1979) and No Man's Land (1982), on Stiff Records. In 1989, she independently released the album 'March', before her 15-year hiatus. She focused more on her family but came back in 2005 with the release of her album. Lene now at the age of 66 is touring again having recently toured Germany this year.
Wreckless Eric is best known for his 1977 single "(I'd Go The) Whole Wide World" on Stiff Records. He decided to leave Stiff and record music at his home studio. While Eric may have left the mainstream music business and the public eye, he has continued writing songs and performing consistently at underground clubs and bars. Throughout the 1980s, 1990s and 2000s Eric has released albums on numerous independent record labels
Rachel Sweet began recording commercials at the age of six, toured with Mickey Rooney, and performed in Las Vegas as the opening act for Bill Cosby at the age of twelve. (No funny pills for her, thank goodness). She began recording country music in 1974, but with little success beyond one minor Country Chart hit. Switching to rock and roll, she signed to Stiff Records label and released her first album, 'Fool Around', in 1978. Her last album was in 1982. She went on the do a variety of musical endeavors. In 1992 Sweet appeared in a minor role on a episode of Seinfeld, as George Costanza's cousin an "The Contest.", . Now at the age of 53 Rachel resides in Akron, Ohio.
Tape flip between tracks 9 and 10. No music missing.
Since this is a few gens down the line, it's not perfect fidelity, but it's complete and it might be something you'll enjoy.
Thanks to BR for the tape.
