#MC50 : 1976 Peel Session

2 May 2015

Posted by Kevin Boyd, 2 May 2015

This month’s #MC50 video features tracks from a 1976 BBC Radio 1 session for John Peel. This would have been Martin’s seventh Peel session (he would do two more) and includes a unique performance of Searching For Lambs that Martin hasn’t yet recorded officially and which hasn’t appeared on any of his recent live albums. It also includes a solo version of The Unfortunate Tailor, thirty years before Martin would record it officially with Swarb for Straws In The Wind. The remaining songs are from his then current album Crown Of Horn.
