Folks, here’s the mother-lode!! This is perhaps the greatest Roogalator collection ever!! Here are Roogalator’s very best BBC sessions recorded between 1976 and 1983 at the historic BBC Maida Vale Studios in London from whence many Beatles, Stones, Yardbirds and Kinks sessions were broadcast. The band is in superb form on all these cuts due to their heavy and constant touring schedule. Indeed, Danny feels that some of these versions are better than the original releases. Additionally, the wonderful comments and intros provided by John Peel including (sigh) Bank Holiday weather and traffic reports create the perfect atmosphere. Cheers!
