Various - John Peel Sampler mp3 album

While John Peel: A Tribute is 40 tracks of lovely, listenable music, I can't help thinking Peel would view it with a bit of suspicion. But then, he'd probably view any kind of tribute to his humble self with a bit of suspicion. He was just a guy who played records for a living, after all.

A sampler is a type of compilation album generally offered at a reduced price to showcase a selection of artists signed to a particular record label.

Cover with artists highlighted in black instead of red (see Various - The Peel Sessions - The Sampler). Packaged in thin jewel case.

John Peel's first stint as DJ was in 1959, for a Dallas radio station's R&B show called Kats Karavan; thereafter, the work sheet for every Peel show bore that same legend in the space reserved for the programme title. Hardin, John Cale, Sandy Denny, the Damned, the Jam and the Slits – through each successive era. Of course, that was hardly Peel's fault, simply a reflection of changing times. But a strong case could be made for having separate, more thorough underground and punk discs – that shift representing the most significant change in his entire career – and squeezing the subsequent landfill indie on to the remaining two discs.

John Robert Parker Ravenscroft, OBE (30 August 1939 – 25 October 2004), known professionally as John Peel, was an English disc jockey, radio presenter, record producer and journalist. He was the longest serving of the original BBC Radio 1 DJs, broadcasting regularly from 1967 until his death in 2004.

The aim of this page is to list official various artist releases focused on aspects of Peel's career and related music. Although the DJ is known to have made the track selections for only a couple of the albums below – his personal involvement in BBC, Dandelion and Strange Fruit compilations is unclear – he did write sleevenotes for others (see Peel On Record Cover Sleevenotes).

These days, musicians often complain that major labels no longer believe in real artist development - if a debut album isn’t a big seller, chances are the artist will be dropped. But artist development is still alive and well at smaller independent labels (for the most part).
