Well that was a Proustian rush! Watching Ready Steady Go in my teens was a formative experience. I watched a lot of the shows in the school holidays (I was away at school during term-time). Some great clips included in this programme, such as that of the Stones miming to ‘I Got You Babe’, complete with Andrew Loog Oldham. And the Motown and Otis Redding Specials. Wonderful stuff with Dusty performing with the Marvelettes, Eric Burdon and Chris Farlowe with Otis. Sadly, I believe that the James Brown special was wiped. I’m not sure how the BBC managed to sort the issue with the rights to RSG. I thought that Dave Clark owned the rights but has been very protective of them.
