Supe, what's the call here?

Is this really a live solo and not dubbed from the album?  I say some...or possibly all....of the song is the original studio version.

Some of the Lizzy peel sessions {later on} have been the subject of controversy, did they perform live or play album tracks
I have this peel session
 
John Peel Show

Recorded: 23rd September 1976 - Broadcast: 11th October 1976

Studio: Maida Vale 4
Don't Believe A Word
Johnny The Fox Meets Jimmy The Weed
Fools Gold
Johnny

now while DBAW and Johnny sound live both FG and JTFMJTW sound like the album tracks

I was able to dig up this nugget of info on Peel sessions

 

"It has also become apparent, that on occasion, album tracks or backing tracks were used to supplement BBC Sessions.

At the time the sessions would have been intended as one-offs, with no thought given to them being re-broadcast in the future.

It is likely this happened with the following:

 

Sounds Of The Seventies - Recorded: 29th August 1973 - Broadcast: 17th September 1973

Little Girl In Bloom

The Rocker

 

John Peel Show - Recorded: 23rd September 1976 - Broadcast: 11th October 1976

Fools Gold

Johnny The Fox Meets Jimmy The Weed

 

John Peel Show - Recorded: 1st August 1977 - Broadcast: 22nd August 1977

Bad Reputation Session - Backing Tracks used






now this makes sense to me as I have the '73 peel session and both those tunes{musically} sound like the studio versions  and in those early days Eric Bell always played a variation of the albums especially on "the Rocker".
