In December 2005 we arrived at a new year’s eve which didn’t involve Luna playing live, until then Luna’s new year’s show was a tradition (sadly one I never experienced in the flesh), and part of that tradition involved pulling out a cover version of George McRae’s disco classic Rock Your Baby.
So in December 2005 I threw together the “Roll Your Own Luna New Year” page which collected new years performances of the track… this post is just a recycle of that post… with a bit of added video from Matthew Buzzell’s Tell Me Do You Miss Me the film of Luna’s last tour:
- Luna – Rock Your Baby (CBGB’s 2000)
- Luna – Rock Your Baby (The Knitting Factory 2001)
- Luna – Rock Your Baby (Maxwell’s 2002)
- Luna – Rock Your Baby (Southpaw 2004)
If anyone has any other live performances of the track please get in touch.
Here’s George performing the song on Top of The Pops in 1974:
… and of course…
Luna – Happy New Year
