Wreckless Eric - Jubilee - 25 Years At the BBC (with gaps)

Wreckless Eric recorded his first Peel session in 1977, when his band included Ian Dury on drums and Davey Payne on sax. 25 years later, Eric made a solo, acoustic appearance live on the Jonathan Ross show on Radio 2.

This album features both of these performances, plus the best of Eric's BBC sessions recorded in between. That includes a second appearance on the Peel show, plus sessions recorded for the Saturday Live programme, Mark Radcliffe & Andy Kershaw's Radio 3 show.

Eric appears here under a variety of guises, and the 'Len Bright Combo' tracks may be of particular interest to collectors. Records by this band are highly sought after and, as Eric says in his liner notes, this session was recorded while they were at their peak.

This album was compiled by Eric himself, from the dozen or so available BBC sessions. He also wrote the extensive liner notes and contributed all the photographs for the booklet.
