The Fall
Following a variety of earlier incomplete releases, the 24 sessions that The Fall recorded for the John Peel show are all available in pristine audio beauty on the six-CD box set The Fall: The Complete Peel Sessions 1978-2004 (Sanctuary, 2005). This includes ‘Whizz Bang’ (recorded for session #13 but not broadcast) and ‘Job Search’ (recorded at the same time as #24 and broadcast on 31 August 2004 as one side of a special acetate presented to Peel to mark his 65th birthday).

The following list follows the recording and first broadcast dates given in The Peel Sessions by Ken Garner. These have been checked against a variety of sources, including the box set booklet, the online Fall discography and the BBC Peel minisite. Discrepancies are noted below. (Please correct any mistakes you find or add further information.)
