Default Guitar heroes at the BBC!

Probably seen this compilation many times but it's 11. p.m on Saturday, just sent my wife to bed, and this programme (1 of 6) is of the '60s and '70s:
1. Hendrix, - Voodoo Chile,
2. (Fleetwood Mac (Peter Green)
3. Deep Purple (Ritchie Blackmore)
4. Pentangle (Bert Jansch, and John Renbourn)
5.Paco Pena (a flamenco piece - even the two hand clappers are eye wateringly good!)
6. Thin Lizzy (Whiskey in the jar) with Phil Lynott.
7. Little feat. (Lowell George) (sooo kewl!)
8. Dr Feelgood with the wonderfully weird Wilco Johnson.
9. Santana (oye como va)
10. John Martyn (with his terribly hacked up Martin D28 and an echoplex (Dealer).
11. Tom Petty on a flying V ! (American Girl)
12. BB King - (Hold on) just superb of course.
13. Rory Gallagher
14. The Police (Message In A bottle)
15. U2 . I will Follow (1981 !? ) never liked their sound.

I never saw Jimi, when he was gigging in London because we were always gigging on the same nights!
I knew Mitch Mitchell from his Saturday job at Jim Marshall's, and he actuall roadied for me a couple of times!
We met Noel Redding twice at all petrol stations after gigs.

Saw John Martyn a few times - first time was a "floor spot" at the Hanging Lamp club in Richmond.

Saw Pentangle a few times, some good, some not.

Never met Rory, but we shared a tech, and I played his almost finish free Strat and his D35 ... hellishly high action on both.

For some strange reason they edited out Dire Straits (Sultans of Swing)

A very fine 45 minutes of great music tho'
