Hi. Years ago, I would tape the songs I liked from these shows and now my old cassette recordings are FLAC files. I didn't always write down the song titles and artists but with Shazam etc I've identified the vast majority. However, thirteen remain unknown to me and I'd be delighted if anyone here could shed some light.

The titles I've given the songs may not all be correct and some of the performances may be 'sessions' (hence the failure of Shazam). So here they are - grateful thanks to anyone with an answer. Cheers!

What I could find....
Its A 'Boogie Thing' could be James Cotton Band
Careless Love might be Odetta
'Hector' is 'Garbage Man' ...original by Muddy Waters...no idea who did that version
'You got me hidin' is an old Jimmy Reed song called 'Baby what you want me to do'
the others are old songs done by many.....

A lot have me stumped!
I recall both shows Very well.
Travellin' Mood sounds like Paul Jones himself.
I only know a few Hector songs... and one is about a garbage collecter (but not the one you posted.)
I'll have another go later.
Sorry.
