  • Tracklisting below is from Volume 1 of the Decktician Logs. Many thanks to Decktician, Ken Garner for copying and additional information, and Rocker for acting as central HQ.
  • A couple of covers of early 1960s hits by contemporary artists; the Bonzos' "Monster Mash" was originally a hit for Bobby "Boris" Pickett in 1962, while Pentangle's version of "Sally Go Round The Roses", a US hit by New York girl group the Jaynetts in 1963, became one of their more popular tracks.
  • The first and only session by Fat Mattress, the band formed by former Jimi Hendrix Experience bass player Noel Redding after the Experience split up. Mark Ellen, in his tribute to Peel for Word magazine (reprinted in an edited version in the booklet of the 2005 CD compiation John Peel - A Tribute, notes that the Peel show was "the first - possibly only - place you would have heard Fat Mattress or Bogshed or Foreheads In A Fishtank". While Fat Mattress did pick up some airplay elsewhere and lasted long enough to produce two albums, the band were only moderately successful and split up in 1970.
