  • Full tracklisting from the PasB of the BBC Written Archives Centre.
  • Ken Garner's The Peel Sessions book has not listed the repeat session of the Four Brothers in this show.
  • Peel plays a 1966 pro-Vietnam war song from Jan Berry, taken from a New Musical Express compilation album of songs inspired by the Vietnam war. In late 1965 Berry penned The Universal Coward, an angry response to Buffy Sainte-Marie's anti-war song Universal Soldier, a hit single for Donovan. Berry recorded and released it solo after his singing partner, Dean Torrence, refused to participate. The Universal Coward is a vitriolic attack on those who opposed the Vietnam War, describing them as “scroungers”, “twisted”, “fanatic” and “thick skulled”. It received little radio airplay and did not reach the charts.
  • Peel plays a track from Finnish band Radiopuhelimet, which in Finnish translates as Mobile Phones. Their song and album titles translate as South of Vetelät and Rock Explosion respectively.
  • Peel plays traditional Serbian music from southern Hungary by Vujicsics.
  • Peel plays the original Child Of The Moon by the Rolling Stones, followed by Band Of Susans' session version of the same track.
