Does anyone here know what songs the band GEORDIE performed on 'The Geordie Scene'? I believe they appeared on the show twice, on 02-11-74 and 27-03-75.
Looking on youtube, the 1975 appearance featured (or at least included) 'She’s A Lady', 'You’ve Gotta Help Me' and 'Medley: Blue Suede Shoes – Long Tall Sally' [with Fogg]. Still looking for details on the 1974 appearance though!

Hello all - I bought a non-official looking Dr Feelgood DVD at a record fair last month. It included an episode of the Tyne Tees music show Geordie Scene taped at the time of the first Dr Feelgood LP (early 1975). I always loved Dr Feelgood but this was even better than I had expected, with a TOTP style crowd dancing all over the studio and the band really going for it - 100 % live!
I've since come across parts of another Geordie Scene show on a Sweet compilation DVD, and a rather poor quality DVD of the episode with the Glitter Band.
I was so excited by the Feelgood show I got in touch with Tyne Tees to ask if the series has been archived and if there are any plans for a rerun (even though I wouldn't be able to watch it in my country). The good news is that all the shows seem to be safe in the archives. The bad news is that there aren't any reruns planned.
Does anybody know if the other Geordie Scene shows have at least made it to the collectors' circuit? Check the link below for a list of shows and the featured artists. A very interesting mix if you're into 70s UK pop/rock.
