All are BBC broadcasts unless stated otherwise

We are delighted to finally be able to confirm the songs recorded for the Radio Éireann Sessions in 1973 and 1974, and the dates they were broadcast.

The original question we asked was:

'Some confusion has arisen with the two Radio Eireann Sessions from 1973/1974. These tracks were broadcast in 1986 by Dave Fanning with incorrect dates and titles.

What tracks were recorded when, can anybody out there clarify the situation'?

The original listings are still (temporarily) in the chronological list below for comparison but the new information we have is:

The following were recorded for the BBC but due to tapes being erased they are 'lost'.

Freedom Song

It has also become apparent, that on occasion, album tracks or backing tracks were used to supplement BBC Sessions.

At the time the sessions would have been intended as one-offs, with no thought given to them being re-broadcast in the future.

It is likely this happened with the following:

Sounds Of The Seventies - Recorded: 29th August 1973 - Broadcast: 17th September 1973

Little Girl In Bloom

The Rocker

John Peel Show - Recorded: 23rd September 1976 - Broadcast: 11th October 1976
