John Peel Files (1980,1992,1999)

*** UPDATED 21st may 2008 ***

Some recent shares from top man Andrew at the Peel Newsgroup. Thank you very much indeed Sir.

PiL & UB40 January 2nd 1980 2hrs
“This is taken from a 16 year old copy tape of a 12 year old original tape, so be warned – it’s a bit ‘hissy’. Having said that, I’m not fussy meself and would be happy to hear something of this quality if I hadn’t heard it before.”

    Good to see you around again Gary!

    I’ve got to let my mate DJ Dave the Rave in Bournemouth have the credit for lending me the 1980 tape (amongst others.) Hopefully he’ll remember to bring the originals with him when he visits later in the year (hint hint)

    I like his introduction for that reggae song by that band, you know the one.

    “And the first coming up in just a moment from UB40 – that’s U B, as in, like, what are they called, letters, you know, 40 as in numerals, not as it says in the Music Machine ad in this week’s Melody Maker, You Be Forty in the kind of Walter Gabriel “Harr, you be forty then””

    Good man Ashley. Many thanks. I shall up the pavement/ping recording,(and others), once I’ve dragged them from their archive across this USB 1.1 connection.

    I did buy a new laptop recently with the express purpose of replacing this 7 year old Sony but then decided it was too good for the likes of the Internet. I suppose I ought to get another one. Ha, any excuse!

    I shall put up a post in a day or two to act as a a rolling re-uploads list.

    Thanks again Sir :D
