5.0 out of 5 stars At Last !! - but what about the other sessions ??, 28 Oct. 2006
This review is from: Voices On The Air - The Peel Sessions (Audio CD)
History is written by the victors. This is why Madonna and Annie Lennox are treated as innovative artists. Siouxsie, however, never really gets the credit for opening the door for them. Here we have them the way many of us heard them for the first time - their wonderful John Peel Sessions. The first two sessions, recorded prior to their Polydor contract, have been released several times before - initially as part of the infamous Love in a void bootleg then subsequently on official releases. What the fans have wanted for years, and now got, are an official release for the three remaining Peel sessions. Alternative versions of songs from Join Hands, JuJu and Tinderbox. All wonderful - hell, I am biased ! - it sounds fantastic.

If I have one minor gripe, it is the fact that their were four other BBC Radio One sessions - Richard Skinner (JuJu), Kid Jensen (A Kiss in the Dreamhouse), Janice Long (Through the Looking Glass) and Mark Radcliffe (The Rapture). - Instead of a one CD Peel sessions release, why not a two cd complete Radio One sessions ? - Pull your fingers out, Universal !!!
