  • Tracklisting below is from Volume 3 of the Decktician Logs. Many thanks to Decktician, Ken Garner for copying and additional information, and Rocker for acting as central HQ.
  • Decktician's log contains tracks down to 'Ibo Native Air'. The PasB suggests there were ten more tracks played after this (marked §). As this completes the session tracks, it seems reasonable. However, it does result in a higher number of tracks played than usual (32). A possible explanation could be the session tracks are short, but until they appear in the wild, it is difficult to validate.
  • The Steve Rhodes Singers seem to have been from Nigeria,[1] one of four African session debuts in the month. Debut sessions too from Irish folk band Na Filii and young Welsh singer-songwriter Maldwyn Pope.
  • Quite a lot of non-current material in the playlist; Peel follows a single by Them with a track from Van Morrison's Astral Weeks LP. and plays other 1960s recordings from Garnett Mimms, Big Al Downing, Cream, Bob Dylan, and Jimi Hendrix.
  • Peel follows Phil Everly's "Sonwflake Bombardier", which includes a Duane Eddy guitar solo, with a track by Eddy himself. Other recent album tracks include items by Jackson Heights, formed by former Nice bassist Lee Jackson, Bedlam, featuring drummer Cozy Powell, and Lindisfarne's Alan Hull.

  • Tracklisting only
  1. Originally a single issued in 1965. Decktician logs the track as coming from an LP. The Dylan discography on Wikipedia has no mention of this track on any compilation available in 1973, so Peel may have played the rare 45, at the time prized by collectors.
  2. The PasB titles the track '2138920716'.
