A more recently available recording consisting of 45 minutes replaced the previous, edited, poor quality 25 minutes of what is the penultimate Top Gear Show, though subsequently is not available online. It contained all of the previously available tracks plus a few more.
Even more recently a longer recording was made available by Leicesterjim. Weirdly this managed to contain all previously available tracks plus a few more, taking the total length to 72 minutes.

(JP: (Start of show) "Indeed he is and it's the penultimate Top Gear tonight and we have for you some amazing things. In fact, we have no records at all on this program, or indeed on Thursday's program, and if you listen on Thursday, then you'll be able to hear some of the classic Top Gear sessions of the past by such people as Led Zeppelin, Joe Cocker, Fairport Convention, the Bonzos, the Pink Floyd and The Wailers. Tonight we have from the Top Gear archives going right back to 1969, music from Steeleye Span, Lindisfarne, Richie Havens, David Bowie, The Chieftans, Family, Roxy Music, Loudon Wainwright and Syd Barrett, but now if you turn your radios up and listen carefully, you'll hear some of our best chums.")
(JP: "Back in about 1967, 1968, somebody had the bright idea of having me record an LP, which would have me reading out poems and songs written by various rockaboogie artistes. Fortunately we had one session only, so embarrassingly bad they decided not to go ahead with the project, and I'm quite pleased about it really. This is, this was the Syd Barrrett piece I was supposed to read for that LP.")
