So, , according to the wonderful site Keepin' it Peel, Billy Bragg's The Peel Sessions album (MRML's inaugural post) doesn't even scratch the surface of Bragg's visits to Peely. When I found this sesion it was labelled as Christmas Spectacular and was identified as occurring on December December 12th 1996. I can't find that date on the aforementioned Peel site (the interview is left in here, so there can be no doubt whose show this is)but it's a great solo Bragg session circa the album, "William Bloke".
All I can say is enjoy this and if anyone can help hook me up with more of Bragg's legion of BBC recordings (really, a third box set - "The Bard of the BBC"!)I would be a most appreciative blogger!
Don't forget to leave us a COMMENT (which is where you will find the link for 1996 Peel Session).
MRML is a blog about the devestating effects of culture: music, politics, comics plus etc. blah blah blah. At times MRML will post fine, unpurchasable three-chord obscurica (punk, pop-punk, new wave, mod, power-pop, gospel, reggae, hardcore, rockabilly, folk, country...whatever.) - - - - - - "The otherwise unavailable files in this blog are posted for a limited time and are intended for educational, non-commercial use.
