John Peel of the BBC is one of the greatest enthusiast for music and he's done so many sessions over the years with many different ranging bands. Which sessions are your favorite ?

Also does anyone have a total list of bands he's done sessions with? Who was the last band to record with him ?

Some of my favs:
lightning bolt
melt banana
white stripes
mudhoney
j and m chain
the fall

Yeah, the Smiths sessions were always something special.

The Fall session 11 is the pinnacle, in my opinion (Athlete Cured/Australians in Europe/Twister/Guest Informant).

Also, I fondly remember Three Wise Men, Bogshed ("Tried and tested Public Speaker", oh yes...), Aphex Twin of course, Sonic Youth, Great Leap Forward, The Stupids, and I Ludicrous.

You can hear that session here.

You may be surprised to know - stunned, even- that they did two normal sessions, plus three shows counted as sessions at the Peel website. Here's the Sonic Youth page there.

Here's the homepage for the excellent KEEPING IT PEEL part of the BBC's website. My advice - go to the Peel Day bit and listen to the sets by The Fall, Venetian Snares and Misty in Roots.

There's also bits about every session band that Peel had, with tracklists etc.

God, there are so many good Peel Sessions. I like the Only One's, New Order's, Magazine's, and Buzzcocks a lot, and I'm not really into any of those bands.

Syd Barret's Peel Sessions is great, and so is T. Rex's.

Of course I love Joy Division's, Gang of Four's, JAMC's--but they are not ones that stand out to me.

The Fall's is great too, and isn't 4 tunna brix by SY a peel session?

Joy Division
Echo and the Bunnymen (late 70s w/drum machine)
Loop (3 sessions documented in the "Wolf Flow" album)

I have an Xmal Deutschland Peel session that I like better than any of their albums.
The vinyl they used for those was super heavy and NICE.

when john peel died i hadn't listened to his show in about 7 or 8 years. i had a tape of one of the live shows SY did for peel, it was from about 93, i taped a live performance by the boredoms from 95 too, but it came out really bad so i taped some drum n bass over it.
the thing i remember enjoying most on peel was listening to all the glasgow bands circa 95/96, groups like the delgados, belle & sebastian, urusei yatsura, yummy fur, secret goldfish, eska... just when they were all starting out.
oh youth.

It's not exactly a Peel session though...

I'd been trying to hear her version of "Old Age" for a while, thanks for that. Don't know that it holds up to the original, but it was interesting.

WARNING! This post contains material of a very sad nature.

Ahem. If you're a fan of both The Fall and Sir John of Peel, you may be interested to know that a couple of very nice people have collected together 45 minutes from over many years. It's Sir John's intros and outros to Fall tracks, recorded from his broadcasts. Nice nostalgia, and some excellent bits of wit. And listen out for his reaction to the session version of 'Athlete Cured'.

Peel/Fall intros and outros

I do take a lot of points away from him for ignoring the Legendary Pink Dots.
They have a FAR more consistent record and a far more favorable good:bad ratio in their back catalogue than The Fall, who he had such a hard-on for.
Aside from that glaring oversight, decades of huge service acknowledged.
