Every posse get flat - paul blake, the blood fire posse
Paul Blake & The Blood Fire Posse: Every Possee Get Flat / Flat Out (Studio Work) 1984
Paul Revere & The Raiders - Him Or Me - 1967
Paul Revere & The Raiders: Him Or Me - What's It Gonna Be? /Legend Of Paul Revere (CBS) 1967. A Perfumed Garden favourite, and an example of JP going against majority taste. Revere and the Raiders, who only enjoyed chart success in the USA, were considered a "plastic", manufactured group, forerunners of the Monkees. Yet that didn't stop Peel from praising this record and featuring it alongside Love, Jefferson Airplane, The Doors and other, "hipper" US bands of the time.
Pavement - Perfect Depth
Pavement: Demolition Plot J-7: Forklift / Spizzle Trunk / Recorder Grot / Internal K-Dart / Perfect Depth / Recorder Grot (Drag City) 1990 (Possibly given to Peel by David Gedge. See 28 October 2003.)
The Leader Is Burning
Pocket Fishrmen: Yr Story / The Leader Is Burning (Noiseville) 1989
The Quads - There Must Be Thousands (UK 1979)
Quads: There Must Be Thousands / You've Gotta Jive (Big Bear Records) 1979
Ray Martin and his Orchestra - Blue Tango ( 1952 )-0
Ray Martin: Blue Tango / Bell Of The Ball (Columbia Records) 1952. As related on Peeling Back The Years, when it was used as the theme tune, this was Peel's first-ever record purchase (and he hadn't heard the song for many years). Presumably the version in the record box was a copy rather than the original 78.
