Ivor Cutler - Peel Session 30/6/1985 (Complete)

The late great Ivor Cutler must have been one of most, if not THE most, recorded artists by the BBC. Beaten only by The Fall, Cutler recorded 22 sessions for Peel between 1969 and 1998, as well as several sessions for Andy Kershaw's programme, and the odd appearance on Radio 4 (a live on air session for Ned Sherrin-era Loose Ends springs to mind).

Recorded on June 30 1985, this was Cutler's 14th session for the Peel show and was first broadcast on 15th July, quickly followed by a repeat on the 30th of that month. The session has been circulation on youtube and in the land of blog before, but each version I've come across has two or three tracks missing. Even the Keeping It Peel site only lists six tracks as being recorded.

So here for possibly the first time ever anywhere in the world is the complete version of the session with all 13 tracks restored and fully intact. Note: tracks 7-9 were taken from a MW broadcast.
