- Incomplete show with edits and Peel links.
- Peel plays a track from Mike Bloomfield, Al Kooper and Steve Stills' Super Session, one of the first rock jam session LPs and much praised at the time - a cover of one of Peel's favoirite Bob Dylan songs, featuring Kooper and Stills.
- Peel claims that "Everyday I Have The Blues", covered by Chicken Shack, is a Memphis Slim song, but Wikipedia credits the song to Pinetop Sparks. Other famous versions of the song are by B.B. King, and Count Basie's orchestra featuring singer Joe Williams.
- The other Chicken Shack session tracks are all cover versions; "Night Life" was composed by Willie Nelson - and sold by him for $150 , "Side Tracked" was originally recorded by Freddie King, and "Mean Old World" was made famous by T-Bone Walker. Duster Bennett guests on harmonica in Chicken Shack's version..
