Roll your own Luna new year (2013 version)

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:

If anyone has any other live performances of the track please get in touch.

You can download the 2000 CBGB’s show from AHFoW on Mediafire

Here’s George performing the song on Top of The Pops in 1974:

… and of course…
Luna – Happy New Year

  1. Is a full recording of the Southpaw 2004 show available anywhere? Would love to relive that night. Thanks, and cheers!

    1. Hi Shawn, I thought I did (or assumed I did as I must have got the Rock Your Baby from somewhere) but haven’t managed to track it down as yet… I’ll keep looking. Sorry!

  2. Thanks for the reminder! I almost let New Year’s Eve pass without listening to these Luna holiday classics. It’s still December 31 in the USA, but my clock tells me you have arrived in 2013 in the UK – so Happy New Year.

  3. I can’t believe I was around for the original … and then this blistering off the wall supersonic rendition … where have the years gone?!
