Saisons & épisodes Les résumés de tous les épisodes de Sounds of the 70s 2

S01E01 Arthouse Glam - Get in the Swing 16/04/2012 This new series kicks off with performances from The Kinks, Roxy Music, Elton John, New York Dolls, Queen, Sparks, Rod Stewart and the rediscovered David Bowie performance of The Jean Genie from January 1973. Welcome to gender-bending, boys getting in the swing and girls who would be boys and boys who would be girls in this mixed-up, shook-up 70s world.
S01E02 Reggae - Stir it up 23/04/2012 By the start of the 70s, the Windrush generation of immigrants who came to the UK from the Caribbean and West Indies were an established part of the British population and their influence and culture permeated UK society. This second programme rejoices and revels in the reggae music exported from Jamaica and the home-grown reggae-influenced sounds that sprouted from the cities of England. Reggae's dominance of the UK charts is celebrated with performances from Ken Boothe, Dave and Ansel Collins, Steel Pulse, Althea and Donna, Bob Marley and the Wailers, Janet Kay, Susan Cadogan and The Specials.
S01E03 Troubadours - Peaceful Easy Feeling 30/04/2012 In the early 70s as the UK got to grips with the new coinage and decimalisation and braced itself for strike after strike, a group of young troubadours were hanging out in Laurel Canyon and the environs of California USA having a ball and creating music that would define a generation. In this third programme from the Sounds of 70s series it's time to kick back and relax and enjoy performances from the long hairs: Crosby and Nash, Neil Young, America, Joni Mitchell, James Taylor, Carole King, Eagles and Seals and Crofts.
S01E04 Guilty Pleasures - Love Will Keep Us Together 14/05/2012 This fourth programme from the Sounds of the 70s is an unashamed celebration of the instantly recognisable classics from the decade of love. A half hour of 'our tune' anthems and the soundtrack to many a love affair and wedding party, including performances from the Carpenters, Bread, Charles Aznavour, John Denver, 10cc, Bellamy Brothers, Exile, Captain and Tenneille and Dr Hook.
S01E05 Rock - The Boys are Back in Town 21/05/2012 Sounds of the 70s 2 series continues, and this programme features the boys with their guitars turned all the way up to eleven! It is time to don your double denim, let your hair down and headbang your way through half an hour of rock anthems including performances from Alice Cooper, The Faces, Nazareth, Bad Company, AC/DC, Thin Lizzy, Whitesnake and Black Sabbath.
S01E06 Soul - Keep On Keeping On 28/05/2012 Imported American soul was big news in the UK in the 1970s. Before the Brits developed their own brand of soul, the Americans were over here showing us how it was done and being appreciated by all and sundry. The series continues with classic performances from the kings and queens of soul, including Aretha Franklin, Billy Preston, The Tams, Curtis Mayfield, Bill Withers, The Stylistics, Gil Scott-Heron and The Jacksons.
S01E07 Disco - Ain't No Stopping Us Now 06/06/2012 Musical documentary series. Disco was all pervasive in the mid and early 70s. And while towards the end of the decade punk stole the headlines, disco still had the high street. Everyone was into it and getting down on it at the local discotheque. Join us in a celebration of all things disco including performances by The Jacksons, Thelma Houston, Sylvester, Carl Douglas, George McCrae, Sister Sledge, McFadden and Whitehead, Eruption and Gloria Gaynor.
S01E08 Rock 'n' Roll Revisited - Get It On 13/06/2012 A love of 50s rock 'n' roll runs through the pop of the 70s like a stripe through a stick of rock. This episode celebrates the rock 'n' roll revivalism and 50s retro leanings that characterise the decade from glam to AOR and all points in between. Revisiting the theatrical performances and fashions you'd be talking about in the playground the next day, from the likes of E.L.O, T-Rex, 10cc, Alvin Stardust, Mott the Hoople and Meatloaf's epic 1978 performance of 'Paradise by the Dashboard Light'.
S01E09 Punk - Anarchy on the BBC 18/06/2012 The late 70s had parents from all over the UK fearing one particular four letter word... punk. With anarchy spreading across the nation, the BBC managed to capture and sometimes contain some of the chaotic energy of these iconic moments in its studios. This episode provides another chance to jump up and down on the couch and pogo to performances from the Stranglers, the Damned, the Sex Pistols, the Jam, Undertones, the Rezillos, Buzzcocks, the Clash, X-Ray Spex and Joy Division.
S01E10 New Wave - Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick 25/06/2012 By the end of the 70s the world had changed and so had music. In America, it was all about memorable melodies, great guitar rhythms, a little bit of post-punk angst and looking really cool. In the UK it was about Brit style cheekiness, social commentary, a melody and a hook, a lot of attitude - and looking really cool. This episode goes beyond punk and looks into the dawning of a new decade and the phenomenon of New Wave including performances from Elvis Costello, The Police, Ian Dury and the Blockheads, Squeeze, Blondie, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, The Cars, Patti Smith and Iggy Pop.
