KIKI DEE
London 1977 [no label, 1CD]

Sight & Sound In Concert, live at the Golders Green Hippodrome, London, UK; February 26, 1977. Excellent FM recording.

For those who enjoyed Kiki Dee’s 1975 BBC show in London (click here), here is one more for your collection.

In 1973, Dee had a hit with the Véronique Sanson song, Amoureuse. But some music listeners might be more familiar with the version of the song known as Emotion, recorded by Helen Reddy in 1974.

  2. Big thanks to you Bigo,kiki dee is underrated
    but who cares if the music is good,i loved to
    hear linda ronstadt sing “amoureuse”,she’s got
    the kind of voice for that.If you don’t know
    veronique sanson,her first album “amoureuse” is
    a very nice one.

  5. Andy Dalby was playing guitar with Kiki Dee in 1977. He had previously played with Arthur Brown in KIngdom Come and was the guitarist on all three of their albums; ‘Kingdom Come’, ‘Galactic Zoo Dossier’, and ‘Journey’. These are not straightforward rock or pop albums. I don’t think Arthur Brown ever did anything straightforward.

    Andy Dalby faded from the music scene in the 80s after being a member of the revitalized lineup of Camel and appears on their ‘The Single Factor’ album one of their live outings, ‘On the Road 82′ from that period.

    Having seen him live with Arthur Brown’s Kingdom Come in the early-mid 70s I can say he was a great guitarist who just didn’t seem to get the breaks that would have gained him greater recognition and success.

  6. Teabag, nice bit of info there. That`s one hell of a journeyman to go from arthur brown to kiki dee . Sometimes the greater recognition deal isn`t all what it`s craqcked up to be, perhaps he just made a comfortable living doing something he enjoyed as well.Nothing wrong about that.
    thanks for the info.

  7. In the period 1973-1977 Kiki Dee had a knack for surrounding herself with some highly talented rock musicians. Andy Dalby’s predecessor on guitar was the equally excellent but generally unrecognized Jo Partridge and on keys and co-writing credits was Tobias (Bias) Boshell. He later worked with Barclay James Harvest and then took the keys seat in The Moody Blues for ten years after Patrick Moraz got the elbow from the band in 1991.

  8. Thanks teabag and sluggo for infos,i also think that joe partridge could be one of those
    guitarists,i had looked in youtube and found out that joe partridge played with the strawbs
    but with acoustic guitar,with good feeling.
    These kind of session guitar remind me also about andrew gold’s style with linda ronstadt.

  9. If you want to see the nearly concert in video
    with the same line up,look at youtube for kiki
    dee “on sight sound” ,1977.And now the two
    guitarists are andy dalby and brian holloway as
    the wonderful soloist :)

  10. there is another slightly different version of this concert available - includes concert intro by BBC DJ Pete Drummond / opening song “In Return” (missing from your version), also full version of “Step By Step” (yours is cut short), also “Standing Room Only” (again missing from your version), also Kiki Dee introduces each of her band members and backing singers - the other version ends with fade out intro to “Loving You Is Sweeter Than Ever” (yours is the full song) - edit both versions together and equalise the different volumes and you get a great concert, or at least 63 minutes of one - Thank You Big O
