(JP: 'Not absolutely their best record, it must be said, but they bought me a beer last time I was in Glasgow, and I like 'em as lads, so their records get played. That's the kind of ruthless way that I act.')
(JP: 'He's a lad, isn't he, though? Isn't he wonderful?...One hopes, of course, that Eilert is at this very moment working on a new LP: I look forward to it a great deal. Since I spoke to you last, a week ago here on BFBS, I've been contacted by no less than three different advertising agencies who are all anxious to use Eilert's music in some sort of campaign or other: I wish 'em well, I must admit, and I hope that Eilert becomes a great global star, which is obviously his wish. I'd like to see him, Dennis and I were just discussing this, I think Eilert Pilarm at the Albert Hall, I think one of those things to kind of yearn for, really.')
(JP: 'I can't remember whether last week I mentioned to you here on John Peel's Music From BFBS that Sheila, my wife, had been actually dangerously ill, but her recovery continues and she gets stronger and, I'm afraid, grumpier, but they did warn me that this was a likelihood with the medicine that she's been taking with every passing day. Frankly, I'm jolly pleased to see her being grumpy. But she's alert enough to pick one or two records anyway, so this is her choice for this week.')

  • Many thanks to Carsten from Berlin.
  1. John dubs this the title track: since there does not appear to be one, the closest to the album name was chosen. However, he adds that the label is purported to be run by Feargal Sharkey, which was indeed the case.
  2. The lyrics quite clearly appear to be that of the title track, but John insists that this is called I Don't Need To Know.
