  • (Introduction to show, mood of Peel, interesting comments, etc. If possible, please add mentions of gigs attended, football matches, TV appearances, stories of past/current activities, etc, for use elsewhere on John Peel Wiki.)
  • Edited tracks, with just a tiny bit of faded out Peel audible between tracks
  • Pentangle's session includes their version of Anne Briggs' "The Time Has Come".
  • Ken Garner's The Peel Sessions lists Mike Horowitz as guest poet
  • JP plays a track from an LP recorded live in Oslo, Norway by Charles Lloyd, a jazz musician who built up a wider audience by playing at rock venues like the Fillmores East and West. Strangely, although the musicians listed on the album sleeve are his regular quartet (including future jazz star Keith Jarrett) both record and group are called "Charles Lloyd in Europe".
