Their July 1982 Peel appearance was, by my estimation, one of the very first sessions that I stayed up to tape (& on a school night too!). A stripped back 4-song preview of the imminent Upstairs At Eric's album, debate continues to rage as to whether these radio versions are superior to the officially released ones or not. Personally, I'd profer that, yes, they're certainly quite different & leave it at that. Curiously, all trace of Yazoo's set has been wiped from the BBC's usually reliable Keeping It Peel database. Odder yet, EMI also overlooked it when compiling 2008's otherwise complete retrospective In My Room box set, despite the inclusion of an entire DVD's worth of period television appearances for the Beeb, so perhaps Alf & Vince would prefer it to remain tucked away in their archive?
It's long term unavailability means that all 4 songs have been sourced from a 30 year old, (& rather fragile, by the sounds of it) Scotch c90, so apologies if it sounds slightly shaky in places, or if the authentic 1980s Medium Wave interference is a little intrusive. Sadly, until Mute issue it as a deluxe 12" (hint) this is as good as it gets.
