Rod Argent and group - going from one milestone band to another.


After leaving The Zombies, Rod Argent formed another band and continued the legacy of making memorable music. Argent came about in 1969, and by the time their first album came out in 1970 they had already become something of a household name with critics as well as audiences. Fueled by the advent and expansion of FM into an album-oriented format, Argent was a perfect fit with programmers and it paved the way for a string of successful albums to come out over the next several years.

Tonight it's 3 tracks recorded at the BBC between 1972 and 1973 and it offers further proof that, not only were the band making great records, they were also a great band to hear live.

So here's what's up:

1. Hold Your Head Up - 1972
2. Liar - 1973
3. It's Only Money (Part 2) - 1973

If you aren't familiar with them, by all means check them out. If you remember these tracks, you may not be all that familiar with these versions.
