  • Show details below are courtesy of Mailing List member Mick. Many thanks indeed to him! (Mick's mailing list message, November 2009): "Following on from the Jan 1970 playlist I posted last week (see 10 January 1970), I have 5 more from 1968-69 shows (see also 22 September 1968, 24 November 1968, 22 December 1968, 01 November 1969), all from the Psych Fanzine 117."
  • Playlist includes Elton John's second single, "Lady Samantha", the first record by him to attract audience attention, although it was only a "turntable hit", gaining radio airplay but not entering the charts.
  • There are two covers of rock'n'roll classics; Creedence Clearwater Revival's "Good Golly Miss Molly" (Little Richard) and Love Sculpture's session version of "Great Balls of Fire" (Jerry Lee Lewis). The latter band also do a rock adaptation of Georges Bizet's "Farandole (L'Arlésienne Suite No 2, Movement 4)", after their version of Khachaturian's "Sabre Dance" had become a hit and a Peel favourite in the previous year - but this track wasn't so successful.
