The Fall - Radio Sessions (Vol 1)

I suppose when you think of The Fall's radio sessions the first thing you think about are The Peel Sessions. Between 1978 and 2004 Peelies favorite band recorded no less than twenty four Peel Sessions and all of them are avaliable on the six CD set "The Complete Peel Sessions" a copy of which I'm sure nestles neatly in the corner of everyones living room. But It wasn't just BBC Radio One which revered Manchester's finest enough to have them in for a session. I think I'm right in saying that these sessions have never been issued commercially and are to my ears every bit as good as any of The Peel Sessions. Volume two should follow at some point next week....
