Argent - they Helds Their Heads High

Argent - In Deep.  Argent is an English band, I really thought they were American.  Also did not know Rod Argent was in The Zombies.  Their hit was the somewhat droning Hold Your Head Up.  But this record we show today is called In Deep, it was released in 1973 and it features the original full length recording of "God Gave Rock and Roll to You", which reached No.18 in the UK charts (U.S. #114).  When released as a single in edited form later the same year, before being remade by Kiss as "God Gave Rock 'n' Roll to You II" for the film Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey in 1991, when it was a massive worldwide hit.  The original Argent lineup reunited at the High Voltage Festival in Victoria Park, London in July 2010, and undertook a short five-date concert tour in December 2010, with gigs in Frome, Southampton, Wolverhampton, Leamington Spa and London.  Speaking of Wolverhampton - I will be at the Arsenal match at Emirates Stadium.
