The Bottom Line

Radio Broadcast of Glastonbury 1986 performance. Put on vinyl by the BBC.

Vinyl registration of Pete Drummond radio broadcast, issued in the BBC In Concert series. John played Stage One of the Glastonbury Festival on Saturday June 21st 1986.
On the cue sheets, Outside In is misspelled Inside Out and Lookin' On comes out Looking In. The same tracks made up the best part of the BBC Radio 1 Live In Concert CD, but Richard Skinners introduction was left out there. ("This is Richard Skinner in London with the BBC 'In Concert' programme...")

21st Cambridge Folk Festival - 9

22 Feb 1986
BBC Transcription Services

The Bottom Line:

Unknown number of tracks from the Cambridge Folk Festival.

John performed the 21st Cambridge Folk Festival on 27 July 1985. The material was broadcast a few months later, 22 February 1986.
The A-side contains material by Loudon Wainwright III from the same line-up.
The B-side lasts half an hour, so half of John's set was left out.

There were more transcriptions of the festival, at least twelve records must have been made.
