I used to have the older CD issue of this, but it rotted(!) so I bought this as a replacement, although I also have downloads of the John Peel shows that the sessions appeared in. The tracklisting is interesting, because it spans two eras; three eras really. The first three tracks were broadcast in January 1979, and date from the Tubeway Army period. The band were complete nobodies at that point. They played "Me! I Disconnect From You", "Down in the Park", and "I Nearly Married a Human", all of which ended up on the band's second and final album, Replicas.
The next four songs were broadcast in June 1979, at which point the band were at number two in the charts with "Are Friends Electric", on the verge of hitting number one. They played "Cars", "Airline", "Films", and "Conversation". A couple of months later "Cars" got to number one as well, although Numan had ditched the Tubeway Army name by that time.
Then we skip a century to 2001, and the rest of the album has a mixture of tracks from his then-current album Pure, and some oldies (including "Cars" again). Sadly it doesn't have the really good live version of "Are Friends Electric" that was recorded for a John Peel show in December 2000.
The original CD only had the 1979 tracks. It's all good, although the 1979 recordings sound very thin and a bit weedy. "Conversation" has a simpler arrangement than the later album version and overall the sound is similar to the Living Ornaments '79 recordings. The 21st century tracks sound very similar to the studio recordings, but nonetheless the recording as a whole is a fascinating history lesson. It's more entertaining with John Peel narrating, though, and the oddness of having electronic synth-pop played in between Roger Chapman and The Ruts.
