  • Ken Garner's The Peel Sessions lists Bob Harris (then a journalist making his first radio appearance to promote the new magazine Time Out, which he co-founded and had just published its first issue) and John Marshall (record producer, graphic designer, film-maker and husband of Shirley Collins) as studio guests.

Sessions

Tracklisting

(JP: 'Uhm earlier in the week last Sunday actually, I had a wondrous evening in Sunbury at the Jazz Blues Pop And Folk Festival, whatever it's full name is, and Gordon Smith played there')
(edit)
(JP: 'Time for the second number from Gordon Smith, which is a Fred McDowell number this time, it's Worried Life Blues')
(JP: 'Worried Life Blues from Gordon Smith and the night air is suddenly become hideous, full of Pete Drummond's who is in the other room stealing LP's from people and so forth')
(JP: 'Gordon Smith and Highway 51')
(JP: 'Gordon Smith and that was of course Walkin' Blues')

  1. Marshall was producing a documentary film for BBC TV's Omnibus arts series on the Incredible String Band, which was scheduled to be shown later in the year. But the BBC judged it too weird for broadcast and it eventually surfaced in 1970 as a film, Be Glad For The Song Has No Ending. It only had a limited cinema release at the time but has since been reissued on video and DVD
