WIN an A3 print of this image from RockArchive.com! Here’s an excellent DAT master recording from block 3, row X, at Earl’s Court, 29 October, 1994. Its an amazing recording with a little grit all EQ’d, doctored up and whatnot. It was the last show of the Division Bell Tour and would be the last Pink Floyd concert until 2005 when the band reunited for their appearance at Live8. Enjoy!  Here’s the playlist.

The Night

It’s not just about the time of day, its also about the mood. Much like Sunrise and Sundown, except this podcast goes through the night. Each track mentions the night and some others just feel like it. Perfect listening anytime or the night, of course. Enjoy! Here’s the playlist and please donate!

Floyd PVD 1987

PVD is the airport code for Providence, Rhode Island. For this podcast, we go back to the 17th of October, 1987. Its the second of two nights about a month into the A Momentary Lapse of Reason Tour. Its the bands first time back to the New England area since 1977 and Floyd first time in Providence since 1973. The southern New England crowd is understandably very excited. I explain more in the podcast but I spent three months doctoring this up and the results have far surpassed my expectations. The podcast starts off with a newly surfaced demo of Yet Another Movie! I hope you enjoy! Please comment and if you’d like, donate! Thank you! Here’s the playlist. Be sure to look for a free lossless version on Yeeshkul, TDD and Dime shortly. Big thank you to the taper, Barry Rogoff (Balrog). Tapers ticket. Ticket (thanks Terry)

The Wall L.A. Premiere!

It’s been a while since I’ve featured a Wall gig and I’ve passed over this one long enough. This is an interesting concert from Pink Floyd’s opening night of The Wall Tour in Los Angeles, California, 7. February, 1980. A few years ago, a new transfer was made from the master tapes but it still had some flaws. Some that were fixed and some that weren’t or went overlooked, anyway, not anymore. If you have this recording already in your collection, you’ll still want to check this out because it will be the best version of this recording you’ve heard. I gave it the doctored treatment! Here’s the playlist. Enjoy!

Rotterdam 1994

Nothing is better than a big outdoor concert in the summertime! I’m sure Ive said it before but it makes me happy. This is one show I wish I had been to because its got such a cool vibe. Live from Rotterdam, Netherlands, Stadion Feijenoord, affectionately called De Kuip, 4. September, 1994! The band sounds great and everyone is having a good time. The sound quality is excellent to begin with but it had some flaws that needed to be addressed. Its all fixed up and doctored! Here’s the playlist but you really don’t need it. Interestingly, the band played only three songs from The Division Bell. Enjoy! Donate! Thank you!

Singles

Brain Damaged listener Diego of Argentina asked if I’d make a podcast focusing on Pink Floyd’s singles. Well, funny he should ask. Before Brain Damage – The definitive Pink Floyd radio show was a podcast, it was on terrestrial radio in the Boston area out of Tufts University’s WMFO. I managed to get 38 shows over the air but never recorded them for posterity. So, over the years, I’ve recreated some of those missing episodes. Singles was one of those shows. Enjoy!  Here’s the playlist!

Montreal 1977 (revisited)

It’s perhaps the most famous Pink Floyd concert. I’ve featured it way back in 2006 but since then, recorder 2 was painstakingly remastered by a guy called ‘Hippopotamus’ in 2013. Just recently, the same, was speed corrected our friend by MOB in 2021. The result is A-MAZE-ING!  Hope you like it and be sure to play it loud!  Here’s the playlist. Enjoy!

Roger In Newport

When Roger announced via Facebook on May 21, 2015 that he would be participating in the 2015 Newport Folk Festival and promised “an intimate appearance specifically crafted set for Newport Folk,” the ambiguity of his declaration had Floyd-heads reeling at the possibilities. Here is a great sounding FoH mix of Roger Waters live at the Newport Folk Festival on July 24th 2015. Here’s the playlist! Doctored for super-sound. Enjoy!

This podcast is dedicated in memory of “Bluenose Matt” Amore.

 

Sheffield 1970

I love a good upgrade to well known audience recordings! Who doesn’t? They rarely come around, but when they do, rest assured it will be here, and here it is. From City Hall, Sheffield, England, 22. December, 1970. It features a rare performance of Alan’s Psychedelic Breakfast! The sound is amazing to begin with but it’s still doctored up, detailed, if you will. Hope you like and if you do, please help support the podcast! Thank you! Here’s the playlist.

Live At Leeds

For this podcast, it’s “Live At Leeds” University’s Refectory Hall, 28th February 1970. Just two weeks after The Who’s famous concert recording there. I’ve been meaning to feature this for a while. The sound quality is excellent so  I didn’t need to do much to it but I did boost the level in some places and tweaked it just a little more, added some sweetness. here’s the playlist. Enjoy it loud and let me know what you think!

Just A Mix

Here it is, the first podcast of 2021. Nothing over the top and crazy about this one. It’s just a mix I put together off the cuff. It was my mood at the time but a loosely knit theme did start to form out of it. Hope you like the selections. Here’s the Playlist!

Alternate Versions

I spent most of all my Christmas Eve (fifteen hours, start to end) wrapping this one up for you. This podcast includes as much alternate versions of songs as I could squeeze in an almost a 2.5 hour podcast! It’s a fun listen! Check out the playlist after, so you don’t spoil the ride. Enjoy and thank you!
