As far as I can see the only Strawbs session track available off-air is 
from the show of 16 February 1969 which included a repeat of that first 
1968 session (see wiki). Funnily enough the only session track available 
on that recording is the one that didn't make it onto the BBC album, 
I'll Show You Where To Sleep, and it might be the only recording 
available of that session track.

There are Reel to reel tapes which have been documented on the wiki 
which include the later sessions, but have not yet been shared.
