  • Peel plays a track from Robert Wyatt's Peel Session EP (this consisted only of Wyatt's September 1974 session) on Strange Fruit Records, his version of Neil Diamond's I'm A Believer. The song was famously covered by the Monkees and was a big hit in 1967. Seven years later, Wyatt's version was issued on a single, was enthused over by Peel and became a UK chart hit.
  • Peel plays a couple of tracks from Bog-Shed's Brutal LP.

Tracklisting

(JP: 'Not the right thing to say I know, but they sound like The Stranglers at times on that')
(JP: 'I discovered this week's new chart and was impressed to see that two out of the top three records are records which have been played on this programme and that, a kind of happened a very long time that. At number 3, it's Wipeout, Fat Boys & The Beach Boys and I venture to suggest that I was the first person to play that on national radio from the LP as an import and at number 2, up from 11, it's MARRS or M/A/R/R/S if you rather and Pump Up The Volume. Still at number 1, Rick Astley, Never Gonna Give You Up.') [1]

  1. It seems Peel is right, as his earliest play of Wipeout was from the LP on 09 June 1987.
