Billy Thorpe & The Aztecs 1972 Long Live Rock & Roll (Long May It Move Me So)

The Moomba Festival on Sunday the 12th. of March 1972 culminated in a massive live concert at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl. The line-up was Friends, La De Das , Gerry and the Joy Band and headliners the Aztecs.

As noted in TV and Newspaper reports, an enormous crowd of 200,000 (yes, you read right: Two Hundred Thousand!) turned up. The following GoSet edition featured a detailed report on the concert and noted the debut of a new track entitled "Long Live Rock And Roll And Long May It Move Me So" (predicted, following the success of "most People I Know Think That I'm Crazy", to be another number one smash - though it was never recorded).

We have taken the Aztecs' barnstorming performance and added another from late 1972 at Melbourne's Festival Hall (their farewell show before travelling to the UK) to create a never before released Aztecs' CD - one that captures the band at the peak of their live power (this is the same year and line-up of the classic Aztecs Live! at Sunbury performance, i.e. the "Sunbury Aztecs" - Billy Thorpe, Gil Matthews, Paul Wheeler and Bruce Howard).

The Festival Hall show features a lost classic: "Let Yourself Go" - a song in a similar vein to "Time To Live" and "Momma" - monster riffing, powerful vocals, relentless beat (with obligatory drum solo) with a running time of over 10 minutes!!

There's also a rare live version of their single "Believe it Just Like Me". (
