Ivor Cutler - Peel Sessions 1977-78

 

At the risk of turning this blog into the Ivor Cutler Appreciation Society (which would be no bad thing, mind) here are another two sessions from the great man.
 
 
Of the nine sessions Ivor cut (see what I did there) for Peel during the 70s, only the 1979 set has surfaced so far, courtesy of the indefatigable Fruitier Than Thou. This session from August 1977 - his eighth for the programme - is the only one to have been made available commercially, appearing as a Strange Fruit 12" in 1989, copies of which will now set you back £25 minimum, assuming you're lucky enough to track down a copy.
 
In addition to that we have three pieces from a follow up session in April 1978. A total of 14 pieces were taped at this session - including three episodes of Life In A Scotch Sitting Room. I edited the files from a partial recording of a repeat broadcast on 5 May 1978 that I found on the John Peel Wiki. Thanks and superlatives go out to the unknown tapist/uploader
