The Incredible String Band on Radio 1

Two CDs have been released which contain songs performed by the Incredible String Band at the BBC and broadcast on Radio One. Fourteen "sessions" were recorded for Radio One but many of these have been lost or taped over. Details of the sessions are as follows. These are taken from the book In Session Tonight by Ken Garner and published by BBC Enterprises.

*=Included on "On Air"

The Radio One Live in Concert was recorded at the Paris Theatre in 1971 and 1972.

Note that some songs are included on "On Air" but are not mentioned in these session details. Ken Garner suggests that some songs may have been renamed.

Mike Heron also recorded two sessions for Radio One, the first of which was credited to Mike Heron's reputation.
