  • Tracklisting below is from Volume 2(ii) of the Decktician Logs. Many thanks to Decktician, Ken Garner for copying and additional information, and Rocker for acting as central HQ.
  • The Midnight Movers track (a cover version of a Beatles song from their "White Album") is not on PasB. The Mick Softley session track ‘If Wishes Were Horses’ seems to have been dropped to make way for it.
  • ‘Stranger In Blue Suede Shoes’ (on PasB) appears as ‘Clarence’ [In Wonderland?] on Decktician’s Log.
  • The Johnstons were thought of as more middle-of the-road than many of the folk and folk-rock artists who did sessions for Peel. But on their session they sing contemporary material from their current album, If I Sang My Song, including the title track - and even do a version of Little Richard's "Ready Teddy". Not standard material for an Irish folk band, although singer Paul Brady would go on to record rockier material during his solo career.
  • Little Richard himself appears in the playlist, along with rock'n'roll cover versions by Foghat ("Maybelline" by Chuck Berry) and Humble Pie (Eddie Cochran's "C'mon Everybody").
