Why Did You Do It? - The Best of

At the height of the British rock boom in the Seventies, Stretch scored a surprise chart hit with their declaiming song ‘Why Did You Do It?’ It came from their 1975 album ‘Elastique’ and is included here among the 20 tracks on this definitive Stretch ‘Best Of’ compilation CD.

With lead singer Elmer Gantry of Velvet Opera fame and former Curved Air guitarist Kirby forming a dynamic front line, Stretch was always a band with great power and potential.

Here are stand out tracks from ‘Elastique’ and their other great albums ‘You Can’t Beat Your Brain For Entertainment’, ‘Lifeblood’ and the Repertoire box set ‘Stretch: The Story Of Elmer Gantry’.

Don’t miss the best of this classic rock band in full frontal attack and discover – why they did it.
