The Official Japanese Edition GB1533OBI 12” 45rpm EP STEREO Liner notes by Ariake Tosa Release date: 10 February, 2021 Shipping from Japan; limited quantities available from the US and UK
Previously only available as a vinyl release on John Peel and Clive Selwood’s Strange Fruit label during a brief period in 1988, this four track vinyl EP was the first of two sessions Nico performed for John Peel (the second was in 1974.) The music was recorded live for BBC Radio One’s Top Gear on 2nd February 1971 and broadcast the following week. This haunting session is Nico at the height of her creative powers as testified by those who saw her solo concerts in this period.
