The Peel Sessions - Bootleg CD

The Sisters of Mercy recorded three sessions for BBC Radio One,

the first and the third one with John Peel and the second one with David "Kid" Jenson.

All of these sessions are featured on various Studio Bootlegs,

see for example the pictures left and rigtht.

Beyond these live recording sessions with The Sisters of Mercy,

various songs from the band's early releases got played by John Peel

in his Radio Show on Radio One, on BFBS, or on other occasions.

In that regard, we recommend the John Peel page in this wiki and

even more so the wonderful John Peel Wiki ...

for some further interesting and entertaining read.

- of course - in free circulation among the fanbase.
