Rick Wakeman "GasTank" Polish review translated

Artur Chachlowski , Wakeman, Rick & Ashton, Tony - Gas Tank
Can you imagine a program in one of the Polish television stations (and it does not matter whether public or private) that would result in, say, Józef Skrzek of SBB and its guests, which would carry out interviews and with them improwizowałby live and played their greatest hits were the greatest Polish Rockers?
Such a program in 1982-83 in the Channel 4 were British. It was called 'Gas Tank', and the hosts were Rick Wakeman - fresh after leaving the Yes and Tony Ashton - the leader of the formation of Ashton, Gardner & Dyke and then frequent collaborator George Harrison, and Mr Ian Paice'a and Jon Lord with Deep Purple. In a relaxed atmosphere in the studio with built bar with a small audience sitting at tables, talking with their invited guests, and then they play them live impromptu mini-concerts. On television, it appeared 6 episodes cycle 'Gas Tank', which was attended by Ian Paice, Rick Partiff, Andy Fairweather Low, John Entwistle, Godley and Creme, Roy Wood, Eric Burdon, Suzy Quatro, Phil Lynott and Steve Hackett. Our favorite Steve even appeared in two sections: in the sixth, when he performed with Rick Wakeman his famous "Camino Royale" and impromptu jam entitled "Hackett's Bogie" and the fourth, in which the harmonica accompanied by Suzie Quatro in its two songs "My Babe" and "CC Rider".
Why would you even write about the television series, the Polish viewers never got a chance to see? Well, recently released a publication entitled "Rick Wakeman & Tony Ashton present: Gas Tank," which is a record the audio of this cycle. It completely omitted from the verbal part, the interviews with invited musicians, and three silver discs pomieszczono a total of about three hours of music, which is a physical trace of the unique, and in some circles, considered today the cult music show on Channel 4.
The album will surely be a nice souvenir, especially for British viewers and listeners, detained during a fragment of history, where the stars of the stage and gave great artists of rock to get to know a slightly different, more 'private' side. Turned out to be not only unattainable rock stars, but equal wykonywującymi guests in casual and laid back, its flagship club atmosphere works, which, inevitably, then took on a whole new dimension. Many of them, unfortunately, no longer in this world (he died in 2001, also co-host of the program, Tony Ashton). They left behind them a unique recordings, which, thanks to the album "Gas Tank" is not only a reminder of the great figures in the history of British rock, but - in a more general sense - a fragment of the great rock heritage, which left behind.
It is a pity that this is not my album comes with a richer and more detailed booklet. It could be - especially for customers like us who have never had the possibility of watching the television series - a wonderful guide and source of information about invited to 'Gas Tank' guests. And so, with only a few random photographs and a list posted on wylistowanym three silver discs tracks, it makes an impression as if the matter participants 'Gas Tank' Dirty treated. Bit of a shame. But it should reach for this historic release.

What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.
