Default 1968 Chicken Shack video

I found this last night and thought I'd share. It's Chicken Shack's cover of an old Freddie King song. The footage is mostly of Stan, but there are some good shots of Christine. I don't think I have seen an earlier performance--especially in color!

Wow!

As far as I know, this is the earliest live footage of Christine, and such good quality, too.

Thanks so much!!

Holy Crap! Awesome visual and sound quality. And the version they do here is better than the album version. I prefer Christine's "medium cool" organ over the piano (at least on this track) and Stan's voice is toned down a bit.

And in color too. With her red top and lavender scarf. It's like the past is alive.

Wow!!!! I love how much more active her keys are in Chicken Shack... So much more reserved in FMac.. Especially as the Rumours line-up emerged...

I was noticing this, too. In the Mac she was determined to be a rhythm player, to root her playing through the bass and drums. In this clip, and on several tracks from the first two CS records, she is much more out front, playing more aggressively, but with taste.
