Fanny - Godmothers of women who rock

My discovery in 2020. 50 years late!

Beat-Club video from 1971. Outstanding sound and video quality.

0:06 Charity Ball
2:38 A Place In The Country
6:16 Hey Bulldog (Beatles cover)
10:52 Thinking Of You
19:40 Ain't That Peculiar (Marvin Gaye cover)
26:10 Blind Alley
31:25 Special Care (Stephen Stills cover)


Quote:
Fanny was an American rock band, active in the early 1970s. They were one of the first all-female rock groups to achieve critical and commercial success, The group has continued to attract critical acclaim for rejecting typical girl group styles and expectations of women in the rock industry generally, and emphasizing their musical skills. Later groups such as the Go-Go's, the Bangles and the Runaways cited Fanny as a key influence.

June Millington - guitar, vocals
Jean Millington - bass, vocals
Alice de Buhr - drums, vocals
Nickey Barclay - keyboards, vocals

Wow! I was only 10 years old in 1971. I am quite "into" music, but had never heard of this band. They were quite popular in the UK, I read.

2 Belgen - "Lena"

A nice Belgian classic The band name "2 Belgen" (literally "2 Belgians") was chosen as, according to the band, "the only thing we had in common was our citizenship".

Not a fan of Justin Bieber but I'm listening to his new song " Anyone "

Not a bad song and easy to singalong ( if you want )

This is the 4th time I've heard it, lines like...

"That you are the only one I'll ever love" &
"Lookin' back on my life, you're the only good I've ever done"

I'm sure his fans will love it
