- Peel's Esoterica
- BBC Radio One
- A cassette compilation from the collection of Peel Group member mr_maudlin, recorded from the BBC Radio 1 John Peel show but with no DJ links.
- These are tape-to-edits but from a good FM signal
- A bit of a marathon effort this one, I kept adding to this tape over a 4 year period. It was going to be for odd uncategorisable tunes (ones that didn't fall into the indie, reggae or world music categories, hence Esoterica) but quickly became a repository for the old jazz and big band tunes he played.
- The edit dates are as follows (I would usually make the edits a few days after broadcast): Track 1 22Mar93; 2 18Apr93; 3 8Aug93; 6Apr94; 5 23May94; 6 19Sep94; 7 5Mar95; 8 20Mar96; 9 22Jun96; 10 17Apr97. Some tracks have a year noted next to them on the inlay card so Peely must have mentioned the original recording date for the track.
