JWB asked me to up this new composite remaster here.
Not sure why this is so small but the md5 checks out fine and the tunes sound good!
Must be the compression level on the flac conversion.

enjoy,

Regarding the second session...

The re-broadcast CDR and the boot CD have a very "grainy" sound to them, but they must come from different sources, since one has Peel's old intros and the other has re-broadcast intros. The boot LP is much smoother and better sounding than the two digital sources, but it's only 2 and a half songs, so the two digital sources were still neccessary to complete the session. The "Re-broadcast" CDR has slightly better quality than the boot CD, so that was used for "Beatle Bones" and the conclusion of "Trust Us". However, the first few beats of "Safe As Milk" are superimposed over the end of "Beatle Bones" on that source, so I had to use the boot CD for the last few seconds of "Beatle Bones". I was able to match the EQ very closely. The boot CD is also the only source that includes Peel's intros, which have been used and edited for flow here.

I did my best to restore these two sessions and I hope you all like it. If anyone thinks they can do better, then by all means go for it!

I'm still hoping that someone will upload the Clear Spot and Shiny Beast outtakes. Here's to that. Wink

I don't quite understand what you're saying here.

'Beatle Bones' was recorded for the BBC session ... or are you implying it wasn't?

Yes, that's what I'm saying. It's the "Mirror Man Sessions" version and not a new recording. It has always been said that they brought some studio acetates for Peel to play on air, and I believe this is the song in question.

Yes, you're right. It was suggested that all the tracks from that second session were, in fact, acetates. But then it was thought that they were all recorded especially for the BBC. So, you seem to have cleared that mystery up ... presuming that the other three tracks weren't acetates too?

I'm pretty sure they're unique recordings.

Maybe you could clear up another mystery ... I've often wondered whether the version of 'Kandy Korn' that's listed as part of the Kidderminster 1968 show is actually the same as one on the Top Gear session.

In other words I think John Peel recorded three tracks from the live show and managed to get a recording of one from his show. Just speculation on my part although I do recall an interview with him where he said he'd got a recording of three songs from a live show (of course, he could have forgotten exactly how many...)

I certainly do not claim that I could do any better, but have just started going through my old audio cassette collection and came across (some of?) this.

It contains Peel's intro and is the re-broadcast.
My recording is straight from FM onto a BASF CEII Chrome Extra C120 with Dolby 'on'.

Is this likely to add or upgrade anything that we already have?
