Small Faces, The - Beat,Beat,Beat

Beat Beat Beat was a German music programme that ran during the sixties. Not to be confused with the other well known German pop programme Beat Club, Beat Beat Beat was broadcast out of Frankfurt commencing in 1966. The programme ran to 26 episodes between its launch in 1966 and the final programme in January 1969, all of which are still in the German television archives. The shows were eclectic affairs and included performances by artists as diverse as Eric Burdon and The New Animals, The Move, Sam and Dave, Cat Stevens and Barry Ryan to name just a few.

Volume Eight in the Beat Beat Beat series of DVD releases features just one band. The band is The Small Faces, four mods from the East End of London. During this performance taped in October 1966 the band run through four of their greatest hits, which include here Watcha Gonna Do About It, Sha La La La Lee, Hey Girl and All Or Nothing.

'And now, live from Frankfurt...Shot in front of a live studio audience these vintage individual artists DVDs are superb, high quality documents of their era but with the running time on each DVD clocking in at around the 15 minute mark the question has to be asked - why not feature the material on further
volumes of The Best Of Beat Beat Beat ? Whatever. Taped in November 1965, the Kinks five song performance includes versions of their then contemporary hits Til The End Of The Day and You Really Got Me. Recorded 11 months later in October 1966 the Small Faces explosive four song set includes perennial audience favourites All Or Nothing, Whatcha Gonna Do About It and Shalalalalee. With Jimmy Page excelling on guitar the Yardbirds appearance from March 1967 sees them performing four titles including Over Under Sidweays Down, Shapes Of Things and Happenings Ten Years Time Ago. Also from '67 come rootsy takes on Tobacco Road, Roadrunner and CC Rider from Eric Burdon & the
New Animals who share their DVD with two tracks from Episode Six who counted future Deep Purple vocalist and bassist Ian Gillan and Roger Glover in their ranks. Other DVDs in the series feature the Hollies, the Spencer Davis Group and Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick & Tich and the
Troggs.' Grahame Bent (Record Collector)
