The Cravats ‘The Complete John Peel Sessions’ 2xLP

All four John Peel sessions on 2xLPs


Categories: , Tag:



The Cravats were one of John Peel’s favourite bands and he invited them into Maida Vale Studios to record four sessions for him for his Radio 1 show between 1979 and 1982.

The beauty of these sessions was the challenge that each had to be recorded and mixed in one day so there was always an energy about the tracks and the versions were always raw as there was no times for overdubs, post-production changes etc.

These four sessions all get one session per side.

The first from 31/7/79 features five tracks: Welcome / Pressure Sellers / Who’s In Here With Me? / Live For Now / Precinct

The second recorded 23/9/80 is: Still / In Your Eyes / You’re Driving Me / Triplex Zone

The third was recorded 10/8/91 the tracks are: Terminus / Ice-Cubists / Firemen / Rub Me Out

And lastly, recorded 6/11/82: There Is No International Rescue / The Station / Daddy’s Shoes / Working Down Underground

The artwork features pictures of The Cravats recording in a studio.

Released by a Cravats fan (no label is credited) as a limited edition double album of 300 copies, we have managed to acquire a few copies.
