John Peel Session Recordings - Cover (front)

One of the first 10" bootlegs from Greek production centres featuring the BBC Radio One Sessions

An endless range of bootlegs with these tracks have been produced over the years.

For the most recent one, which was formerly featured on this page and comes as a box set,

John Peel Session Recordings - Cover (back)


  • Two versions of this bootleg do basically exist. Both are limited editions.
  • The cover art of all these issues is very similar and shows the same band photo
on the front of the cover as the Australian A Fire In The Hull bootleg, although,
the latter was released later and features the Hull concert of 1st July 1983.
  • The layout of the covers does differ, however.
In addtion, for the second edition (the so-called die-hard edition),
the material chosen for the cover varies, see more details below.
  • The first edition consists of only one 10" record and has a shorter track list.
It also features Burn, which is not on the second edition and was not recorded
during a Radio One Session with John Peel,
but in 1983, rather, during the Kid Jensen Show.
  • This edition is limited to 10 hand-numbered copies.
  • Apart from the track list and the slightly changed title "John Peel Sessions 1982/1983/1984"
the back cover also shows a photo of band from the early days. But not the same as on the cover front.

This page is Work in Progress and going to be extended as soon as ever possible

  • The second and so-called die-hard edition consists of three different issues
and is limited to 33 numbered copies (each, we guess)
  • It appears in the following varieties:
- blue cloth cover
- red leather cover
- black velvet cover
  • All of these covers are gatefold with the vinyls coming in additional sleeves.
