DJ Shadow live in Oxford in 1997

DJ Shadow at Oxford November 1997
I don't know much about this one. It was taped off the radio in 1997, a live set by DJ Shadow. Very good. it has a lot of stuff off of Endtroducing i think, including Midnight in a Perfect World and the one about the Organ.

Probably available everywhere, but anyway, taped off the radio and tracks are as follows:

0:00 - Fixed Income
5:30 - Lost And Found
16:52 - High Noon
20:55 - Organ Donor
24:18 - Midnight In A Perfect World

Supposedly, this is the Sound City 30 Nov 1997 set. From looking at the tracks it doesn't appear to be. Still, Steve Lamacq can be heard at about 20:45 saying it is.

John Peel on Radio London 18th July 1967

Inspired by the "Final Perfumed Garden" reconstruction, I've remastered this old John Peel tape which is in John Peel Torrent 8 (i think). The original tape is okay, but by modern standards it's still unlistenable. All i've done here is splice in the the records that were on the tape along with all the links by John Peel. I've attempted to normalise the loudness too. It's split into two halves and is a few minutes longer than the original tape because i've included the full songs in places where the original tape is truncated. Enjoy, and thanks to the original taper and uploader.


Part One:
0:00 - Country Joe and the Fish - Not so Sweet Martha Lorraine
5:15 - Incredible String Band - Chinese White

John Peel on Radio London 11th august 1967 - remastered

Radio London - John Peel on Radio London 11th august 1967

Inspired by the Final Perfumed Garden reconstruction, I've done the same with this show. ie: i've got as many of the actual records (well, mp3s of the records) as i could find and edited them together to make a higher fidelity recording than had originally survived, but as close to the original tape as possible. I haven't done anything fancy, just good old fashioned splicing. I tried my best to normalise loudness too. Hope you enjoy.

There are a couple of songs i couldn't source, and one or two that i could only find in mono but by and large i think the end result is more enjoyable to listen to than the version in John Peel torrent 8 (or 7 is it?). Thanks to the original uploader though! I am very grateful.

This is slightly longer than the original recording, mainly because you get all of the Eddie Floyd song and most of the Truly Smith song, rather than just the snippets that were left on the original tape.

Dream City Film Club John Peel sessions 1996 and 1999

Again, I don't think this particular session has ever surfaced. The first one was released as a CD EP, but has been deleted by now along with all of DCFC's other stuff (on Beggar's Banquet except one single on ORG records, in case you're interested) and the second session was broadcast but never released, and it hasn't popped up that i know of in any of these John Peel session torrents, though i could be wrong. Enjoy!
