K's John Peel SPECIAL - The Soundtrack of Our Lives - 444 Classic Peely Prime Cuts (2022 Remastered Expanded Edition) (20x CD' + Bonus)

I don't think you'll find a better Punk, New Wave, Mod, Ska, Reggae, Electronic, etc. collection than this anywhere.

Here is my own 20CD John Peel box set, which I've slowly compiled over the past 18 years since his death in 2004 which includes 444 classic tracks, many of which are incredibly rare and very hard to find, plus others you just never see on compilations.

All the great bands and records he championed in the 70s, 80s, 90s and 00s: The Undertones, Buzzcocks, Sex Pistols, The Clash, Stiff Little Fingers, The Stranglers, The Cure, Siouxsie & the Banshees, Altered Images, Madness, The Specials, The Beat, Dexys Midnight Runners, The Jam, Joy Division, New Order, Cocteau Twins, The Fall, The Smiths, and many many more.

An incredible amount of time was spent doing the research for this mammoth 20CD collection, going through pages and pages of his show playlists online, plus listening to old tapes of his shows and the records played, the comments he made about certain acts and why to him they were so important and groundbreaking, plus my own recollections and fond memories of the records I first heard on his show and rushed out to buy in the days and weeks following!

John Peel's 444 Classic Peely Prime Cuts has been a real labour of love. It wasn't just gathering all the tracks together and throwing them down anywhere in a haphazard fashion - it was placing them in an order where they sound good running next to each other, with a similar sound or genre that make them work in the running order. Also, like a good book, I made sure each disc had a beginning, a middle and an end.

Since this collection began with John Peel's favourite record of all time: The Undertones 'Teenage Kicks' some 18 years ago, I thought it appropriate to end with a song from The Undertones too. 'Listening In' (in reference to his loyal listeners 'listening in' each night) turned out to be the perfect choice for a great finale to his memory and the set.

As a very special 2022 bonus, I've added a two track 12" single of two classic John Peel faves as disc 21 making 446 tracks in all.  Marlene Webber 'Right Track' (Original 1977 Rattie Soul 12" Single Version) which came in at #7 on John Peel's Festive Fifty of 1977, and The Smiths 'How Soon Is Now?' (Original 1984 Rough Trade 12" Single Version) which came in at #1 on the Festive Fifty of 1984.

Hope you have as much enjoyment listening to this set as I've had making it.

    2. Attributed to John Peel wherein Peel defends vinyl's imperfections against the flawless sound of CDs, telling an acquaintance,
      "Listen mate, life has surface noise."

      "Surface noise, on vinyl or in real life, is the gnarly stuff that grounds each of us in reality and gives us a shared point of human commiseration."
      This was from some other source?......and one I wish I had said!

  6. Just looking at the track listing has brought back so many memories from that period of my life. How I'd rush down to the import shops and track down singles that I'd heard on a delayed broadcast of the Peel shows, picking up copies of NME and Sounds to read the latest reviews . I'll always be a music fanatic, but this period, when you're in your late teens, early twenties, was truly special. Thank you to K for bringing this flood of memories back.

  21. Massive! Just what John Peel deserved, music (and diversity) educator of whole generations, including myself, in BFBS-Germany, since the middle and late 1970's ... K: you're a master, a champion of this whole compilation genre. So many thanks! Best, TC

  22. K, many thanks for compiling this, it is absolutely fantastic and a very good representative of what music loving jonny plee was playing in the late '70s and early '80s when I would tune in every night. I put together a few Peel related compilations and posted them on the Twilight zone last year, with a fair few duplications of what you have here, but this knocks mine out of the water, terrific stuff.

  23. Oh man, this is epic! My wife and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts. One of my big regrets is that living in the States we did not have John Peel. I've since heard some tapes of his shows and just love them. Wish there was a John Peel Youtube station or an equivalent. Just fantastic!

    1. All you need to do is go to the John Peel wiki, where people upload their recordings, it is a fascinating resource. The link to the calendar, where you can select a date is : https://peel.fandom.com/wiki/Calendar, but explore the rest of the site too. My favourite show is 30th August 1979 which was his 40th birthday, there used to be a complete version on there, but it seems to be missing now. If you are interested I can post a link to my copy.
