- (Duff Paddy) This first show in the bunch features sessions from, as stated above, Principal Edwards Magic Theatre, Eclection and (The) Family. There's only a slight glitch in Mr. Apollo, as indicated below, but otherwise this is a full two-hour show in very reasonable nick for its age. Manna for Peeliacs.
- The show was pre-recorded, since John was attending a Pink Floyd gig at the time it was due to go out.
- While recording the show on Friday, Peel doesn't know the result of the following day's FA Cup final - he has promised to play the Family album in full if Leicester beat Manchester City. As revealed in the news, Man City won 1-0.
- Eclection, #4. Recorded 1969-04-21. No known commercial release.
- Principal Edwards Magic Theatre, #2 (rpt). Recorded 1969-02-24. No known commercial release.
- Family, #5 (rpt). Recorded 1969-03-11. All except 'Bring It On Home' available on BBC Radio Volume 1 1968 - 69 (Hux).

- (Duff Paddy) This torrent is a re-upload of the 8 classic Top Gear shows that appeared on my Peel blog Kat's Karavan and have now expired. Most of them are full (or nearly full) shows, encoded as 320K MP3s from 7-inch reel-to-reel tapes.
- Many thanks to hills1902 for supplying the tapes, to John for ripping and encoding them and to Phil for originally hosting the MP3s on his server.
