This is the only Beatnigs Peel Session. The quality is ok - it is a second generation tape - and perfectly listenable to.
Surprisingly, it is less explosive than you might expect, but certainly worth listening to (in my opinion).
Regarding the personnel, this is a best guess from who plays on the show from Eindhoven a few weeks after this session (but I suspect not all the instruments are played)c.
