Poppa Joe
by The Sweet
#BestSeventiesPop #SweetChannel #BeachBums

In the early 70s I did watch Top of The Pops, and there was lots to enjoy. Pop was bright and cheerful. It was colourful and fun! What to play next, what to play?? Well I thought I'd better play a tune or two that I liked back then as a child.

There are several videos for Poppa Joe, but I chose this promo video, not because I remember it from back then (I don't), but because i think it is delightful! Filmed on the unglamorous, windswept beach at Weston-Super-Mare on Sunday 5th December 1971, after a gig at the Winter Gardens in W-S-M the night before. It looks distinctly chilly! Note the guys (all except Steve) wear sideburns under their long hair.

Misc thoughts on TOTP and the 70s as the come to me. Pans People were boring, I much preferred watching the bands. I didn't like David Cassidy and that kind of stuff.

Avatar is me in 1974 with our rescue dog Penny. just love all the avatars that are appearing this week, so nice to meet your early selves!!

Bonus video of Poppa Joe filmed for Belgian/Dutch? TV in B&W in a picturesque old town. It's rather cute as they sing out of windows, dance around, muck about a little and smile a lot :-D
