respected by amazing musicians and an inspiration to many, it was a great cause of sadness when john peel passed away two years ago. as with the many legendary peel sessions, john was a british master of finding undiscovered talent and casually letting each performer share an originality that truly profiled how emotionally intense they were live.
in the studios of the bbc on-air journalist, pj harvey was recorded on many occasions. they created a special bond from the very early beginning of pj’s career and along the way, john proved to be one of her greatest mentors. as a tribute in memory of him, a personally selected collection of twelve rare live performances were mastered and recently released.
win! thanks to the good people at filter magazine, musicisart will be giving away extra copies of pj harvey – the peel sessions (1991-2004). to win a copy, please leave a thoughtful comment (with yr email or myspace address) or send an email as the winner will be randomly selected by november 19.
