  • Three partial recordings of the show are available. The second is almost complete (missing the first six minutes). File c fills in the first track, so only the show introduction is now missing.
  • A pre-recorded show featuring Blur recorded live at Peel Acres. In the interview, after their performance, John allows the band to chose some of the records played.
  • Tracklisting completed with help from Lorcan’s Playlist Archive with thanks.


  • Blur live from Peel Acres. Recorded 17 September 1999.
