  • Tracklisting below is from Volume 1 of the Decktician Logs. Many thanks to Decktician, Ken Garner for copying and additional information, and Rocker for acting as central HQ.
  • High Tide included Tony Hill, formerly of the Misunderstood. They never achieved any commercial success but gained a cult following and lasted into the 1990s.
  • There is also a debut session featuring the first line-up of Steeleye Span, and the title track from one of the year's best-selling LPs, James Taylor's Sweet Baby James.
  • Peel favourites include a single by the Humblebums and "Pescadores" by Los Calchakis, previously played on Night Ride. In addition to the Liverpool Scene session, he plays the title track from Andy Roberts's first solo LP.
  • A 1965 song by Rod Argent, performed by him with the Zombies, is followed by a track from his current band Argent.
  • File below begins with a couple of minutes of flute music followed by a snippet of a pathe style travelogue for the Egyptian pyramids
