I listened to the Levellers so much back in the early 1980s! So cool. My favourite is their version of the Devil went down to Georgia.
Believe it or not, I don’t know them except for this song, which I heard a long time ago and made a real impression on me – I think it was a televised live concert of theirs. I will see whether I can’t find The Devil Went Down to Georgia online. Which of their albums would you recommend?
Oh they’re all good but I think their first few albums were the best: ‘Levelling the Land’ is the absolute masterpiece. The first album ‘A weapon called the word’ is fun too. The third album ‘The Levellers’ had some good tracks too but I love the energy and passion of their early work most of all. Ah this takes me back…
Thank, Alastair. I’ll give Levelling the Land a listening to.
Hell, Tom I just wanted to get up and dance,
I just got introduced to another great band! Thanks, Tom; this song has been added to my ever-growing list. Lovely tune.
My pleasure. It really is – it has stayed with me since I first heard it.
Nice. I’ve never heard of the Levellers. Are they Irish? They sound Irish. That is to say, not altogether sober.
They’re actually English. They have quite the spirit, no?
The Irish will never live down their fondness for drink…
