Station
  • BBC Radio One
YYYY-MM
  • 1990-91
  • A cassette compilation from the collection of Peel Group member mr_maudlin, recorded from the BBC Radio 1 John Peel show (plus some extra-curricular Billy Bragg from a live-to-air session on the Nicky Campbell show) but with no DJ links.
  • The show was recorded on Hi-Fi VHS then edited to cassette from a good FM signal. The inlay card has the edit dates as: track 1-4 11Nov90; 5-7 11Mar91; 8-11 31Jan91; 12-15 30Mar91; 16-17 30Oct91; 18 2Nov91; 19-20 4Nov91; 21 10Nov91. The edits were usually done within a couple of weeks of broadcast.
  • I played the Wedding Present session to death at the time. I think it was broadcast well before the Seamonsters LP was released, and so the version of Dalliance from this session has always been the definitive one to my mind. Great sessions also by The Fall and Galaxie 500; and I particularly liked Slags and Angels by Robert Lloyd and the Billy Bragg live version of The Warmest Room.
