PJ HARVEY’S THE PEEL SESSIONS 1991-2004, ANNOUNCED FOR RELEASE ON MAY 28 ON VINYL

BACK CATALOGUE AVAILABLE ON VINYL IN 2020/2021

 

 

01 APRIL 2021 (TORONTO, ON) - May 28 sees the reissue on vinyl of the 2006 collection of PJ Harvey sessions with the late BBC Radio 1 DJ John Peel, spanning recordings from the start of her career in 1991 up to 2004.

 

Originally released two years after Peel’s death in 2004, the record came with a tribute message from Harvey in the liner notes which read, "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 with much love that I chose these songs, in his memory. A way of saying 'Thank You', once more. Thank You, John.

 

The release was cut by Jason Mitchell at Loud Mastering under the guidance of John Parish.

Praise for THE PEEL SESSIONS 1991- 2004

 

“It serves as a most welcome and convincing re-reminder of exactly how good PJ Harvey is; it's a record which has simple enjoyment merit as well as being of sound development/ obsessive collectors item interest”9/10, Drowned in Sound

 

“Stark, often stunning” – 9/10, Uncut

 

“A vibrant, living record…none of these performances ever feels like a throwaway, and each veritably ripples with spontaneous, one-take-only passion” - Pitchfork
