John Wilson continues with his new series in which he talks to leading performers and songwriters about the album that made them or changed them. Recorded in front of a live audience at the BBC's iconic Maida Vale Studios. Each edition includes two episodes, with John initially quizzing the artist about the album in question, and then, in the B-side, the audience puts the questions. Both editions feature exclusive live performances.
Programme 4, the B-side. Having discussed the making of "New Chapter", the third album from the UK reggae group, Aswad (in the A-side of the programme, broadcast on Tuesday 20th November and available online), Brinsley Forde responds to questions from the audience and performs acoustic live versions of some to the tracks from the album which was released more than three decades ago.
