Before the J.S. Bach piece, Peel mentions that he’s been playing “a lot of baroque music” on the show, although he’s not sure how to pronounce the word “baroque".
He says he attended “an amazing concert at the Festival Hall last week in which a gentleman played a surbahar” before playing a BBC archive track featuring that instrument. This may well have been the concert on 23 March featuring Vilayat Khan on sitar and Imrat Khan on surbahar .
The final Adrian Henri and Andy Roberts session track also shows the then fashionable Indian raga influence in its form, and in Andy’s very fluent guitar playing. Henri calls it “the most complex” of their collaborations and it was included on the first Liverpool Scene LP, produced by Peel.
Before the opening track Peel mentions that Donovan sang it “in concert at the Albert Hall the other day"
Peel continues interviewing Rev. Dom Robert Petitpierre - he finds the previous track “very interesting indeed”. Peel asks him about “the Maharishi thing” and he says he finds meditation “very important” but says it also exists in the Christian tradition. Peel thanks him for coming in and the interview ends.
Peel continues interviewing Andy Roberts & Adrian Henri - they talk about playing at the Roundhouse on the same bill as CJ&TF, using the Rolling Stones’ gear (“Totally inaudible”) From his comments it seems as if Peel was present at this gig (in late 1967?)
Unknown Vietnamese Artist: Instrumental (from the BBC Archives)
Peel continues interviewing Andy Roberts & Adrian Henri (they explain who the Liverpool Scene are and what they do – “we’re the only group at the same age level as the Fugs”, says Henri. He also has an exhibition of paintings in Nottingham due to open and invites JP to attend.)
Peel continues interviewing Andy Roberts & Adrian Henri (Andy explains that the next track, an instrumental, is named after “a hamster who resides in Liverpool” and is based on Mimi and Richard Farina’s “Dandelion River Run”.)
Peel continues interviewing Andy Roberts & Adrian Henri - they discuss a hamster farm in Surrey (“We must go down there sometime”) – maybe the one celebrated in “Percy Parslow’s Hamster Farm” on the first Liverpool Scene LP - and Adrian Henri comes up with a terrible pun. Peel then praises the next track and the "ridiculous" (for JP a term of praise at the time) album it comes from
