One of the regrets in my life is that I never had the opportunity to speak to, let alone meet, John Robert Parker Ravenscroft, OBE. However, despite this oversight, I spent countless hours of my teenage years and early twenties, which correspond neatly with the time period encapsulated by this album, in the (indirect) company of this humble man.

Peel showed, by the records that he played, that the range covered by 'popular' music could be far greater than not only that imagined by parents, authority figures, siblings, friends etc. but even by yourself. Just when you had reached the point that you thought that you had heard examples of everything that could possibly be 'out there', he would stretch the envelope just a little bit further, expanding your mind and horizons inch by inch. The extraordinary contradiction was that this cult show (and it was such, as it did little to attract or retain the casual listener) was actually responsible for playing the most diverse range of musical styles and tastes that I have ever heard in a single radio programme.

Not all of the music was to my taste - looking back it is unlikely if more than a fraction of it cut though to the heart - but when it got there it stayed for life. How else would I have heard the music of the 'here today, gone tomorrow' bands being lauded in the music papers of the time, let alone the likes of everything from Prince Far I to Pere Ubu to the Psychedelic Furs? There were certain musicians that Peel seldom played - I always considered that he had an unreasonable prejudice against the likes of Bruce Springsteen, for instance - but these were usually bands that had other BBC programmes that would play their work.

My first memory of the great man was one night back in 1982 when I dared to leave the radio on after listening to the David Jensen show. I was only 12 at the time and didn't know what to expect - I thought he looked scary from a picture in Radio Times and expected him to be really agressive. How wrong I was. From that point onwards I felt like I'd made a new friend in him, although I never had the opportunity to meet him. Over the years, I was able to impress people at school with my knowledge of obscure bands like The Farmer's Boys, The Higsons, APB and Southern Death Cult. I, like so many others, was devastated when I heard the terrible news on that day in 2004 and was lost for musical inspiration for nearly 3 years after his death. Thankfully I found Marc Riley's show on 6 Music, but there'll never be another Peel. He was relied on by so many, especially as the 80's progressed when the mainstream was in a similar state to what it was prior to punk.

To the kids who've been brought up on Pop Idol and X Factor, this compilation must be a revelation, but to those of us brought up hiding under the covers listening to the latest session by The Fall it's just a bit too safe. Yes, there are some absolute classics on here (Party Fears Two, Atmosphere, A Forest), but this isn't what Peel was about. Far too much of this compilation is devoted to pre-1983, but what about the likes of The Bodines, Microdisney, Bogshed, A Witness, Stump, Electro Hippies, Extreme Noise Terror and so many more.
