The Jesus and Mary Chain “Never Understand” (Peel Session) – Record of the Day

The essential Jesus and Mary Chain albums are Pyschocandy, Darklands, Automatic, and the compilation albums Barbed Wire Kisses, and The Complete John Peel Sessions. The definitive versions of some of their LP classics are found on The Complete John Peel Sessions, and this is one of them. From their first ever Peel session in 1984. The comments on the page are spot on and reflect my feelings too:

“Makes the Psychocandy version seem rather watered down…”

“Wish I could re-create the feeling of first hearing this.”
