Originally released in 2006, PJ Harvey’s The Peel Sessions 1991-2004 have an upcoming vinyl reissue. The Peel Sessions 1991-2004 are a compilation of live recordings from Harvey’s BBC Radio 1 DJ John Peel’s radio show. With Peel having passed in 2004, the collection is being remastered by John Parish, a collaborator of Harvey.
As a tribute to Peel, Harvey wrote, “More than I would ever care to admit for fear of embarrassment to both sides, but I sought his approval always. It mattered. Every Peel Session I did, I did for him. It is which much love that I chose these songs, in his memory. A way of saying ‘Thank You,’ once more. Thank You, John.”
On May 28th the vinyl reissue will be released via UMe/Island – so keep your eyes peeled! In the meantime, check out the original release here.
