John Peel's Record Collection Goes Online

Posted by: Kyle Huntington (05/01/12)
The late and legendary John Peel's record collection has started to be released online today via a project called "The Space". The first 100 of 2,600 albums have been released in alphabetical order today and include a streaming link plus notes from Peel's personal records.
About "The Space"The names of 2,600 albums of the broadcaster's cherished record collection are being released as part of a project called 'The Space', run by The John Peel Centre in Stowmarket, which aims to recreate Peel's home studio and library online.

Peel, who died in 2004, had a collection of about 25,000 vinyl albums. Every week, the museum will expand its virtual museum by adding the names of another 100 albums in alphabetical order. Although copyright prevents the website streaming the albums online, there will be links to listen elsewhere. There will also be detailed information about each record, taken from Peel's personal notes.

John Peel's widow Sheila Ravenscroft said: "There'll be information about the record sleeve, front and back, all the information about the record itself, as well as whether John rated the album or not," she said. "I think people are going to be very interested as to what's in the collection. They will be amused and intrigued by it."
