  • A portion of the show, discovered by Peel Mailing List user andysmith10. It is heavily edited to highlight the session tracks, and lacks almost all of the Peel links.
  • Complete show track listing supplied by Ken Garner of Peel Mailing List, to whom many thanks. Ken adds: 'This one your mystery taper taped from quite near the beginning of the show but edited more out. He clearly did not like the Idle Race. I've done the full show track listing because this show is very much of its time and remarkably consistent in its bluesy feel, and for that reason, not one of the classics, I fear...'.
  • The Daughters of Albion and the Collectors, both relatively obscure bands, aren't particularly bluesy either, which may explain why the tracks weren't preserved by the taper. The former group had Leon Russell among their backing musicians on the album.
  • The Bread And Beer Band track, a version of the theme tune from a famous BBC radio serial of the 1940s and '50s, features the then little-known Elton John on piano. Peel revisited the single towards the end of his career; see June 2004 (FSK) for details.
  • Love Sculpture's session includes covers of both Jerry Lee Lewis's "Great Balls Of Fire" and Georges Bizet's "Farandole" from his "L'Arlesienne Suite No. 2" - the latter track an attempt to repeat the success they had with their hit single of Khachaturian's "Sabre Dance", also done first on a Top Gear session.
