- File comes from the summer of 1976, ahead of the 1976 Band Retrospectives shows in August. Peel mentions that Eric Clapton will be playing at Crystal Palace this Saturday. That date would have been 31st July 1976. So there is a very high chance that this show was broadcast on 28th July 1976, as there doesn't seem to be any sessions broadcast on this programme.
- Peel plays a track from Eric Clapton covering Elmore James' The Sky Is Crying.
- Peel plays a track from James Brown, not the soul/funk musician, but the reggae singer.
