ISO: Elvis Costello bootleg

I'm trying to find a copy of either 'Raised on Radio' or 'Radio Sweet Hearts' by Elvis Costello (both have the same tracks - BBC radio recordings). Does anyone have a copy they could download?

If you do bitorrent d/l the goody speed corrected version is still on dimeadozen.
It doesn't include all the songs on the bootleg as some have been officially released and dime rules don't allow that.

This is a straight reseed of a short compilation recently gone from the tracker, originally shared by 'chrispoor' with my thanks. Enjoy!

This is a compilation of master FM recordings of BBC Radio 1 John Peel session unreleased tracks by Elvis Costello.

Note that, where song titles are shown in brackets followed by an asterisk, thus: (Xxxxxx)*, this indicates a track that has been left out of this compilation because it has been officially released in one form and another, these ones have been removed in order to comply with DIME rules regarding non-inclusion of released material.

Don't know if this will be of any help, but this website has links to hundreds of Peel Sessions: []
It has youtube links to Costello's complete Peel sessions for 25.7.77, 13.3.78, 23.10.78 and 25.2.80.
This is a really useful website for anyone looking for a particular Peel session.

Thanks for the replies, really appreciated. I have the Goody version and am looking for something more complete, and preferably lossless. So I don't want to use that JP blog for this - though it has some really interesting material on it and I didn't know about it, so thanks.
