Taken from Glenn Hauser's DX LISTENING DIGEST 5-204, November 28, 2005, link at bottom:

"pirate radio historians will be interested in a restoration
project using tapes of the final transmissions by Radio London from
their last day Aug 14, 1967. John Peel's last pirate show, aka "The
Perfumed Garden," all 5 1/2 hours worth, has been painstakingly
rebuilt. Some UK collectors located 90% of all of Peel's original
low-fi (and very quaint hippie-esque) intros and outros from various
reel to reel home-recorded sources. Then over time they located clean
copies of every song he played that night. This new and old material
was then seamlessly cut together, and a 5-CD set has been making the
trading rounds. Info on the restoration project can be found at

Now a Peel tribute site has the whole thing available for download in
5 parts at "
