Format: Audio CD
Released on CD in 1989 by Dutch East India Trading/Strange Fruit, 'The Peel Sessions' was the first album to compile recordings made by The Damned for the BBC's John Peel Show. Unlike later more expansive compilations of the band's John Peel material, this release focuses soley on the band's Punk period, with one session from November 1976 and the other from May 1977.

The recordings were made live in the BBC's studios purely for broadcast on the radio. I tend to find BBC Session recordings, even going back to the 1960's with the likes of The Who and Hendrix, seem to lose their inherent power in the hands of the BBC production team. The recordings tend to be a little clinical, thin sounding or lacking in the punch of their original counterparts, and to some extent this CD is no exception. The fidelity is a strange hybrid of messy production undertaken in a clinical recording environment, with the end result having no low-end. On a positive note, the performances do find the band going full-throttle, and the sound qualilty itself is excellent.

If you're a fan of The Damned's Punk period these early Peel Sessions may be of interest, but I doubt you'll prefer them to the original recordings.

So from me 'The Peel Sessions' gets a three star rating.

Tracklist; Stab Your Back, Neat, Neat, Neat, New Rose, So Messed Up, I Fall, Sick of Being Sick, Stretcher Case Baby, Fan Club, Feel The Pain.

PS; To whoever left the "unhelpful" vote, a very sarcastic thanks. It's people like you who sometimes leave me wondering why I bother taking the time to try and be informative with my reviews.
