  • Start of show: "Well, hello dearly beloved. A miserable drive out of London, miserable weather, but a warm-hearted and loving programme."
  • Show comes from Peel Acres and contains a début play for Bearsuit.
  • JP mentions when playing the Trans Am track that he had a version by Arthur K. Adams years ago but that it was stolen, and begs listeners to buy it for him if they see one. A copy was eventually sent to him by a friend of a friend in the US (see 08 March 2000). The record was later found in John Peel's Record Box.
  • The first three songs of the Peelenium for 1974 were also discovered among the singles in John Peel's Record Box. The fourth track, by Richard & Linda Thompson, came from an LP that JP listed among his Top 20 Albums.

Sessions

Tracklisting

(JP: 'We'll continue trying to get them to do a session if they ever come to the Greater Europe because we rather like them, particularly when they sing in whatever ancient language it is, they believe they sing in and I do like the idea of that. I wish there was more of it.') [1]

Peelenium 1974

  1. Status Quo: 'Down Down (7")' (Vertigo)
  2. Don Covay: 'It's Better To Have (And Don't Need) (LP-Hot Blood)' (Mercury)
  3. Ann Peebles: 'I Can't Stand The Rain (LP-I Can't Stand The Rain)' (London)
  4. Richard & Linda Thompson: 'I Want To See The Bright Lights Tonight (LP-I Want To See The Bright Lights Tonight)' (Island)
(JP: 'Let me tell you, Status Quo actually recorded three sessions for this programme, and I did play the whole of a Status Quo LP upon its release and interviewed the band as well, so I've got nothing to be ashamed of there.')

Footnotes
  1. Peel ultimately failed to get the band to do the session after the BBC couldn't guarantee that there would be free parking space outside the studio for their tour bus.
