Hi, I just finished watching Magic Years volume 1
and there are very interesting interviews with Bob Harris and the band.

The interviews are black and white, Freddie's sitting on a sofa, Roger in an kitchen, John in a car and Brian in some room.

From their haircuts I think it comes from an era between 1976-1979.
Does anybody know some more info about this ?
Is it available somewhere on the bootleg market ?

Also on Magic Years 2 during the Hyde Park segment you can see Bob's interview with Brian. If you look closely, you can see the Old Grey Whistle Test logo behind Brian, so I guess it comes from OGWT :-) Any info about that one ?

The black and white clips were shot when Bob met up with the band on the NOTW tour. They were shot in Texas at the time of the Houston gig and he hung around with them for a few days doing the interviews. The one with Freddie was not shot in Texas but most likely at his flat in London. He was in the process of making a documentary on the band but it never aired or was never finished. I've been a fan for 30 years and have yet to see the documentary.

The footage of Brian with Bob was shot after Hyde Park and during the ADATR sessions so that puts the footage at the latter half of '76. No idea where the entire interview is but other fans here may have some info on all this. Hope this helps a little.

BTW is it the same documentary which Bob talked about during the WATC video shoot as heard on the audio bootleg ?

Bob was at the WATC video shoot and may have had some of his cameras there because he introduced the band and spoke to the fans prior to the band coming out to do their bit about how the video was going to go and what was expected of the fans while they were miming to the backing track.

I was there too... and believe me, nobody "cried" for any FLAC-recording at the shoot.
Anyway, remember... that girl called "Sir GH" was still in the making !!!


PS: Correct me if I´m wrong "Pop" aka Bob...
...otherwise just find yourself a boyfriend with a real big dick!

Please, stay away from the keyboard when you're stoned

I am already telling my three year old nephew to keep himself in good shape, as I expect these to be released in the latter part of HIS lifetime, and not mine.

Though by the guesstimate you have submitted there, pittrek, I think this may become a generational issue... ;-)
