Show Intro

"Evening all and welcome once again to The Joe Elliott Show right here on the wonderful Planet Rock. It is this week coming to you all the way from Sacramento in California. Sacramento is the capital of California as it happens. And it is the last night of the Def Leppard tour for 2019. A tour that started all the way back in June in Sweden and went all the way through Europe including Download. We had a month in Canada. We had almost a month in Vegas. And here we are finishing up in the capital of California tonight."

"We got sixty minutes of great music lined up for ya as well as the answer to last week's competition. Which I had to revamp because so many people got the answer right which surprised the hell out of me I gotta be honest. That I have actually changed to the first five correct answers win a singed by yours truly copy of This Is How We Roll the brand new Down 'n' Outz album. I'll get to that in a minute but we're gonna a start the show off with this because from out of nowhere we've got a brand new ELO album."


"The album came out on Friday. It is actually credited as Jeff Lynne's ELO these days. That is the title track of the album From Out Of Nowhere."

"OK so on to last week's competition. to win a signed copy of the brand new Down 'n' Outz album This Is How We Roll. The question was what did the first five songs of last week's show have in common. And thanks everybody that sent in an email. I literally had hundreds of them. Most people were very very close. They said 1971. They said Island Records. Correct. But the specific answer that I was looking for was they all featured on a compilation album that came out on Island Records in 1971 called El Pea."

"An album that is very closer to my heart. So congratulations to the five winners. And in reverse order if you like. In other words the fifth one was the fifth correct answer. And they're all date and time stamped. So there's no arguing here. So drum roll please. The winners are in reverse order. Andy Hibbard, Shug Lafferty. I remember you Shug. Angie Brown, Alan Haines, and the first one into my inbox was a gentleman called Paul Hebdon. So congratulations to all five of you for winning a signed copy of the new Down 'n' Outz album to celebrate the fact I'm gonna play two more tracks from that album called El Pea."

Emerson Lake And Palmer

"And before that a band that the Down 'n' Outz actually opened for nine years ago at the High Voltage festival in London with a song called Knife Edge. The band is Emerson Lake And Palmer. Both of those songs from that fantastic compilation album El Pea."

Cat Stevens

"He was born Steven Demetre Georgiou. These days he's known as Yusuf Islam. We know him as Cat Stevens. And there with a song that was a massive hit actually a few years later for Mr. Big. But one of Cat's huge hits in the early 70s a song called Wild World."

Sex Pistols

"OK so moving on from 1971 up to 1977. When the musical landscape was really starting to change. Now here's two songs from two vastly different bands, but both albums were recorded in the same studio complex and both albums were released on the same day. You couldn't make it up."

"As was the Sex Pistols. We just heard God Save The Queen."


"From the album News of The World that is Queen with the title track of their third album if you like Sheer Heart Attack. An album that was released on the 28th October 1977. 42 years ago."

"You are listening to the Joe Elliott Show, all the way from Sacramento in California this week. It is time for a little break, and when we come back, we're gonna be celebrating the music of a gentleman who we lost six years ao this week."

Lou Reed

"And before that Lou Reed who we lost this week six years ago. 2013. From the live album Rock And Roll Animal. A fantastic bit of work called Intro, which is really Dick Wagner and Steve Hunter's fantastic guitar work, and Sweet Jane."

David Bowie

" David Bowie.

"Inexplicably left off the Ziggy Stardust album back in 1972. It did eventually surface as a B-Side and is featured these days on re-releases of that album. But that is David Bowie and The Spiders From Mars with a song called Velvet Goldmine."

T. Rex

"So from one of David Bowie's old muckers to another. A compatriot and occasional collaborator. A friend, an enemy, a nemesis. This is Marc Bolan and T. Rex."

"And before that T. Rex from the album Electric Warrior in 1971. One of the first albums that I ever owned. The song The Motivator."

The Doors

"Can't get my head around the fact that song is 52 years old. It features on the first Doors in 1967. It was also the B-Side of the single Light My Fire. The song is Crystal Ship."


"Right then well to paraphrase many a rock and roller. Let there be drums."

"And before that from their debut album back in 1973 we heard Montrose with the immortal Rock Candy."

Cheap Trick

"From the 2017 deluxe version of the album We're Alright. That is Cheap Trick with a fantastic cover of the old Roy Wood/The Move classic Blackberry Way."

Show Outro

"And that my friends, all the way from Sacramento in California, is about it for this week. I'm off to do Def Leppard's last gig of 2019, but I will be back with you next week at exactly the same time from home. I can't wait for that."

"So until then I'm gonna leave you with this. It's often regarded as the first ever Punk Rock single released which would definitely make them leaders of the pack. Which is the perfect introduction for this song. This is The Damned and New Rose. Until next week see ya!."
