The Peel Sessions 1991 - 2004 (US Release)

PJ Harvey first recorded with BBC One broadcaster and legendary new music champion John Peel in 1991, six months before she released her debut album. It was a friendship that resulted in some of Harvey’s finest live takes, the intimate, stripped-down vibe of Peel’s sessions meticulously showcasing Harvey’s precocious vocals (from whisper to wail on “Water,” all hysterical and shrieking on Willie Dixon cover “Wang Dang Doodle”) and transcendental songwriting talent—“You Come Through,” recorded after Peel’s death, is particularly poignant here.
