About this item

BBC Sessions 1982-1984 features three BBC sessions which have never been available on CD before. Two of the sessions were with admired radio broadcaster John Peel. Includes early versions of the singles ‘Walk Away’ and ‘No Time To Cry’ that would end up on their debut ‘First And Last And Always’. Includes covers of The Stooges ‘1969’, Dolly Parton’s ‘Jolene’ & Hot Chocolate’s ‘Emma’.
