Twenty-three minutes of a two-hour show, recently discovered on a reel-to-reel tape by Peel Mailing List user andysmith10.
Dating of this show was possible using a combination of The Peel Sessions and JP's mention of seeing Pink Floyd 'in the park' the day before.
Savoy Brown Blues Band, #1. Recorded 1968-05-20. No known commercial release. Only 'Mr. Down Child' present on this recording.
David Bowie, #2 (repeat). Recorded 1968-05-13. 'When I'm Five' available on the 40th anniversary edition of "David Bowie" (Deram - 531792-5). Rest of the session available on "Bowie At The Beeb" (2xCD, EMI, 2000). Only 'When I'm Five' present on this recording.
Traffic, #4. Recorded 1968-06-24. No known commercial release. Only 'Feelin' Alright' present on this recording.
(JP: 'Now, both the Nice and myself, actually, during the past few weeks, have been in a certain amount of trouble with various unhappy and bewildered people for having the effrontery to have opinions of our own, you see, and actually having the temerity to mention them in front of other people, which is a very daring concept. So, here's the Nice's current single, which I think is a very very important record, and I'd like to see it in the charts, obviously. This appears to be the only programme that's playing it at the moment, because it is a bit long: six minutes and fifteen seconds.')

(JP: 'Yesterday in the park, Pink Floyd played better than I've ever heard them play before. I don't know what it was, it must have been the people there, the feelings that everyone was generating, becasue they played superbly. It was nice to hear them play that well, because they've been through a lot of very sad things in the past year. Anyway, they've got a new LP out called 'A Saucerful Of Secrets', and yesterday they finished their set with 'A Saucerful Of Secrets', which at the time sounded like a sort of hymn to the open air.')
