John Peel (the legend)'s record collection, A through Z, is introduced by his widow. In this segment, "V is for Van der Graaf Generator", his wife talks of why VdGG were chosen to represent the letter 'V', and Peter Hammill talks about the early days of VdGG and John Peel's relationship ('68/'69), and their relationship throughout the 70's.

Hi,
 
Any chance to actually get a direct link?
 
I saw absolutely nothing that dealt with these letters and information thereof.
 
Thanks

Looks like my record collection in the old days ... before I started getting CD's to replace the albums.
 
I miss the art work though!
 
The link shows the collection ... is there something that we can do with this? ... double click is not working, but I'm at work!

Looking at the 'W's' there are 3 Rick Wakeman albums. Something of a guilty pleasure I imagine.
 
and the 'U's' includes UK's debut album.
