I heard 'Silly Girl' which sounded amazing! Did Mr. Riley play anymore TVP's after that?

In fact, can anyone tell me which other songs were recorded at the Peel session?

After extracting the tracks and posting the download link, I noticed that the sound quality was rather bass-heavy and muddy... I then realised that I'd inadvertently pressed a button on the Minidisc to change the sound quality on playback that added bass and treble. :oops: I've ripped the tracks again with a clean sound and created a new download link. Apologies for the cock-up. Please do download them again; you'll notice a big difference.

**NEW** download link:

I gather than Mac users may encounter problems with the zip format, so here's individual download links:

Silly Girl

A Picture of Dorian Gray

La Grande Illusion

Look Back in Anger

A Picture of Dorian Gray + Paul Groovy intro
