  • The Peel Tapes Volume 17
Station
YYYY-MM
  • 1992
  • 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
  • The show was recorded on Hi-Fi VHS from a good FM signal then edited to cassette. The inlay card doesn't have the edit dates for each track, just that it was done between 3 Feb and 14 Apr 1992.
  • The Nightblooms, Smudge, Yo La Tengo and The Breeders were all bought on the basis of hearing them repeatedly on this tape. Did anyone else feel a bit guilty about taping records from Peel's show (thereby depriving the artist of the royalties from buying the record)? I justified the activity by buying as many as I could reasonably afford, and probably 3 or 4 from each tape was about the average.
  • And, for the record, yes I did want to be Grant McLennan.
  • TDK AR-X90
  • The Some Paradise and Verve tracks, seem to have been recorded in chronological order, could have been played on 23rd February but as they add up to more minutes than are missing from that show, it remains a mystery.
