Top Gear with John Peel 13/4/69 with sessions by:
Glass Menagerie; Terry Reid; Blodwyn Pig and Bonzo Dog Band
Here is the first part of Top Gear 13/4/69. I rescued this from a muffled recording on one track only.
Eq'd to the best of my ability, it is still far from perfect, but is at least listenable.
Now you may be aware of other sites hosting Top Gears by the hundred, though mostly from the 80's and later, but it has quickly become apparent that these are designed for "stamp collectors", who avidly copy them and then never play them again, or those who crave copies of the "Festive 50" more than life itself.
Well each to his own, just stay away from me. OK?
For me, the magic of these early shows is the often unique sessions and the early Peel commentary, long before he became a star. There is no doubt in my mind, that the magic quickly faded after John Walters took over production from Bernie Andrews.
If you were around in the 60s and have some parts of uncirculated Top Gear from that period on tape then do get in touch.
Lastly - feel free to copy and distribute these shows as you see fit, even if it gets on my wiki!

Depending upon the interest, I will post part 2 shortly, and a whole load more uncirculated shows.
