#020: Galaxie 500 Peel Sessions CDR

Galaxie 500 Peel Sessions bootleg CDR

The glaring ommission in the otherwise wonderful Galaxie 500 box set was the two sessions the band recorded for the John Peel Show - the first of which was recorded exactly 30 years ago this week.

To repair this error I took advantage of being employed in the BBC library to acquire myself a copy of the sessions which I designed a sleeve and label for and slipped into my collection as if it were real! I can’t remember where I pinched the graphics for it from.

Mine is better than the official release because it is chronologically correct!

I thought I’d just go through some of the stuff I’ve acquired over the years and post about it here… how interesting the posts (and artefacts) are will undoubtedly vary!
