Pan’s People – Green River

Top of the Pops 1st January 1970. A marvellous start to the seventies, as Pan’s People dance to Creedence Clearwater Revival’s Green River.

Pan’s People dance to Creedence Clearwater Revival’s Green River. I posted a low-quality version of this performance last year, and hoped against hope that someone somewhere would come forward with a better version. Well, hallelujah! Someone just posted this much better version on YouTube. Thanks gibb1962, whoever you are!

It’s clearly a rehearsal performance, not the broadcast one. But who cares: and check out those silver gogo boots! Woohoo!

As I intimated on my Louise Compilation comment, this is my favourite of Flick’s early ‘Go-go’ routines. It is just wonderful – combining a great song with some real movement. Also, the girls really put some effort in, despite it being (I think) a rehearsal take? Great to see Andi get it wrong on a couple of occasions yet pick it up instantly.

…what a powerhouse performance this is. Louise is just a wild woman. When Andi stops it’s like she can’t take any more G-force and has to take a break. Great stuff
