A few days ago Echo & The Bunnymen released a compilation of songs they played during various John Peel sessions. Peel was one of those who supported them from the beginning and Will Sergeant told once 'Without John Peel sessions, Echo & The Bunnymen in my opinion, would not exist! It's that simple. The band got so much support from him and his producer John Walters. Recording a Peel session was essential to the development of our songwriting skills while at the same time giving us amazing exposure and self-belief'. And you can listen to many of their songs in rare and stripped versions. It is every time a pleasure to me listening to one of the best bands in the early 80's again.
