Format: Audio CD
'Peel Sessions Plus (1979-82)' is a very welcome addition to the brief oeuvre of the Teardrop Explodes, a band who only officially released two albums in their lifetime (a third, 'Everybody Wants to Shag the Teardrop Explodes' was released posthumously in 1990, while there have been several compilations: 'The Collection', 'The Greatest Hit', 'Piano', & 'Zoo-Ology'). 'Peel Sessions Plus' comprises two Peel Sessions and sessions for David Jensen, Mike Read & Richard Skinner (plus one mystery BBC Session) - the versions here are less like those on 'Kilimanjaro' (1980) or 'Wilder' (1981) and feel analogous to the Teardrops compilation via Head Heritage or parts of 'Piano' (e.g. 'Camera Camera', the original single version of 'Sleeping Gas'). For biographical information, probably best consult Julian Cope's 'Head On'...though the Arch Drude does offer brief and very positive sleevenotes on the back cover. He's right about the collection and right to never consider reforming the band!

Julian Cope lead the merry bunch that were the Teadrop Explodes, whose membership flowed somewhat, also present for the trip are Gary Dwyer, Michael Finkler, Ged Quinn, David Balfe, Alife (Alfie?) Agius, Troy Tate, Jeff Hammer, Ted Emmett, The Emotional Jungle, The Evil Wasp, The Legendary Eric Batchelor, & Luke Tunney. Being a longtime fan of Cope, I tend to buy most of his stuff old and new sooner or later, I heard about this release and thought I'd get it when it reached a suitable price - hearing it in a record shop it does sound as fresh as Cope's sleevenotes say and I had to have it there and then!

What can I add to Jason Parkes' review? As Paul Daniels would say, "Not a lot!!". The Teardrops were ahead of their time and under appreciated. These tracks/sessions show what they were about. Absolutely essential CD!

Having for years raved on at anyone who'd listen (and many who wouldn't) along the lines of "I saw them live several times - the albums don't even tell half the story about how brilliant the Teardrop Explodes were" I can now put this on the stereo & say "I told you so."

Investigate soonest.

In which the BBC producers prove rather better at bringing out the essence of Teardrop than Kilimanjaro's producers, Drummond and Balfe. This packs a real contemporary punch missing from the Teardrops' lovely but rather woolly debut elpee.

Cope's vocals are strong throughout, and his bass playing isn't bad either; the early tracks are surprisingly fruggable. If this were repackaged as the new offering from Franz Ferdinand or the Arctic Monkeys, a Mercury Prize would be assured.

Buy for the rarities if you must, but the versions of Ha-ha I'm Drowning and Went Crazy are the tracks destined for repeat play.

5.0 out of 5 stars Julian Cope 15 Feb. 2008
By Kathleen Rich - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I bought this as a gift for my son who wanted it, but I have been fortunate to hear it because we commute together and play it in the car. I love Julian Cope and I'm 65-years old!

His voice, his music, his band make me happy and bring me out of a funky mood from the office on my way home from work every evening. Thank God for Julian Cope!
