10cc and Russell Morris Deliver Zoo Twilights Most Hit Driven Show Of the Season

10cc and Russell Morris played Melbourne Zoo Twilights on Friday 21 February and delivered more hits than any other Zoo show is capable of this season.

This show wasn’t just about quantity of hits. I was very much about quality.

This condensed set from Russell spanned from his 1967 Somebody’s Image cover of Dylan’s ‘Its All Over Now Baby Blue’ through to his 1969 no 1 ‘The Real Thing’ and kicked off with the most recent ‘Ain’t No Angel’ from his exception 2019 release ‘Black and Blue Heart’.

Songwriting legend Graham Gouldman didn’t even scrape the sides of his hits and still delivered a dozen songs you know plus a few deeper cuts including global classics ‘I’m Not In Love’, ‘The Things We Do For Love’ and ‘Dreadlock Holiday’.

While Gouldman is the last man standing from the original line-up featuring Eric Stewart, Kevin Godley and Lol Crème, drummer Paul Burgess has worked with 10cc since 1973 and guitarist Rick Fenn has been a member of 10cc since the 1977 live album ‘Live and Let Live.

Iain Hornal is one of the new recruited for Gouldman’s 10cc sharing most of the lead vocals. The setlist included the song ‘Say The Word’ from Hornal’s album ‘The Game Begins With The Lights Out’. Hornal wanted to write a 10cc sounding song and it turns out Graham was the man to teach him.

While 10cc have a bona fide Greatest Hits album the centrepiece of their show is the epic 10+ minute ‘Feel The Benefit’.
