Billy Bragg: Peel Session (1996)
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).
Support the artist!
