About 15-18 yrs ago I had a tape which was copied for me from vinyl in an obscure record shop in Budapest. (I didn't have the money to buy the original). The owner said it was a "pirate" recording or compilation, I can't quite remember.

It had a version of Body Electric, on which, by way of introduction, Andrew says: "This song is not Electric Body, it's actually called Body Electric". I think it contained Emma and Jolene too, among many other songs of course. Does anybody know the title of the album/LP? And where I can find it?

Aww, how disappointing. :? So is that a tv-recording then?

Nope, it's a recording from Peel's radio show on the BBC. He plays the Body Electric 7" and introduces the song like that.

I got that version on 2 bootleg vinyl compilations:

this one: http://www.sistersbootlegs.de/lps/demos.htm
that one: http://www.sistersbootlegs.de/lps/histo ... sters1.htm

It might be on other LP's too though...

I remember comparing it with the 7" and it's not the same recording. Most noticeable was a small bit of feedback somewhere in the track that's not in the 7" version, so presumably Peel was sent an acetate of an earlier mix or something.

Further information. The "Electric Body" version of Body Electric from the John Peel show is the same version as track 6 on the Kenny Giles CD.
Presumably Peel was sent an acetate.

Don't we already have that, unless you mean yours has more Peel talking (or the segue into the next song) after the record ends?
