(Alan, message to Peel Mailing List: Here are two shows (this one and 07 March 2001) where John played Captain Beefheart sessions from 1968 which had apparently been lost/erased by the BBC and subsequently rescued from a listener recording. There's a couple of mentions of Ken Garner's first book, and an expressed desire that he gets on and updates it.
Beefheart session from 4/2/68. Recording starts part-way through first session track (Yellow Brick Rd).
Last 80 mins of 2-hour show, from 10:40 - midnight, then some Mary Anne Hobbs.

I Am Kloot: To You (b-side 'Dark Star' single) We Love You Records

That is 'To You' by I Am Kloot, the b-side of 'Dark Star' and I was going to follow that you see, by playing the Grateful Dead's 'Dark Star' which, when they played live, would sometimes go on for hours, even days. But there is a single version of it and somehow I'm going to have to play you that now really, because although it doesn't make a great deal of sense, I've got no other record ready to play you.
