Joy Division were really picking up steam by the beginning of 1979; all the key relationships between Tony Wilson, Martin Hannett, and The Factory had been made and "A Factory Sample" was on its way to release. At the same time, John Peel was frequently playing the new 12" version of "An Ideal for Living" over the airwaves. He invited Joy Division into the studio for their first session.
Joy Division recorded its first John Peel Session in January and second in November of 1979. The group's first full-length release, Unknown Pleasures, would hit the streets between the two - around the same time Manchester's sewage system collapsed (at least the city had something to celebrate in its hometown band's brilliant debut). They were rendered somewhat redundant once combined into this recording.
