John Peel in 1976.
As before, thanks to people who have helped me complete gaps, so I thought I would share some of these with you:
First up, many thanks to Steve for this, which was actually a UK Top 20 hit single the following year, but I couldn’t find. Cheers Steve!
Racing Cars – ‘They Shoot Horses Don’t They?’ mp3 (1976 Festive Fifty no.7)
Another beautiful, sad song…maybe there WAS some good music pre-punk after all *tongue in cheek*
Matching Mole -‘O Caroline.’ mp3 (1976 Festive Fifty no.46)
Meanwhile, those three elusive tracks from 1985:
One Thousand Violins -‘Like One Thousand Violins.’ mp3 (1985 Festive Fifty no.49)
Three Johns -‘Death Of The European.’ mp3 (1985 Festive Fifty no.14)
Woodentops -‘Move Me.’ mp3 (1985 Festive Fifty no.19)
And one from 1998:
Quickspace -‘If I Were A Carpenter (session).’ mp3 (1998 Festive Fifty no.39)
Obviously, there are other mp3s I have been sent, thank you, these will appear at some point soon. And I’m also planning on having another Shop Assistants fest next week. Watch this space…
