Stitched Up

lapseIf you loved the Raw Sound of Thunder or any of the other Momentary Lapse soundboard podcasts, then you’re going love this!  Its an early Momentary Lapse of Reason tour, soundboard recording (post “Echoes”, but don’t worry, I got you covered).  Live at the Brendan Byrne Meadowlands Arena, East Longmeadow, New Jersey, 11 October 1987.  Here’s the playlist! 

Animals aux Abattoirs

paris77We are long overdue for a gig from The Animals Tour (as it was called in Europe).  This excellent recording is from the last of four consecutive nights from a rather fitting location that used to be a slaughterhouse.  Pavillon De Paris, 25th Febuary, 1977.  Another Harvested gem!  Here’s the playlist and here’s a ticket scan.

 

My Favorite Things

BD219I often get asked, “What’s your favorite Floyd song”?   That’s easy but I was recently asked, “If you had to pick one favorite song from each of Pink Floyd’s fifteen albums, what would they be”?  Not so easy.  I pondered over many tracks from each album and it was difficult to narrow it to just one but I did it and this podcast is the result.  See if you agree.  Here’s the playlist.

Intermission

bd218It’s been a long time since I featured one of Roger’s Wall gigs.  This one is special.  I explain in the podcast but you can look at the playlist if you’re that curious.

When I attend concerts, I enjoy the pre-show and intermission house music as much as the show itself.  Usually its just whatever the production crew feels like playing but with Roger it’s different.  Roger’s crew uses every opportunity to throw subtle hints and references found deep in the wall.  Here’s the playlist.  Please enjoy the “full show”.

Go With The Flow

bd217Here is it, the first podcast of 2015 as floydpodcast.com enters its 10th year!  I never thought I’d be making these podcasts for as long as I have but I have you to thank for it’s continuing success!

No special theme for this one… I just went with the flow.  Hope you enjoy and please leave a comment!  Here’s the playlist.

Time Machine

timeLive from The Rainbow Theater in Finsbury Park, London.  This was the second of two shows on the 4th of November 1973.  This particular gig started at 9pm and was done to benefit former Soft Machine front-man Robert Wyatt who had broken his spine after falling from a third floor window during a party.

This was the last time Pink Floyd performed the same night with their friends, Soft Machine apart from Nick Mason who occasionally played drums for Robert Wyatt in solo projects, including Nick Mason’s Fictitious Sports. This was also the last concert of 1973, before Pink Floyd’s 1974 French Tour and it was the last time material from Obscured By Clouds would be performed live.  It’s a great performance! Here’s the setlist.

Long Cold Rest

pompeii skull.siteThe doctor takes a backseat as special guest host, Satan returns for another dark podcast from beyond.  This is a nice companion to last years podcast “All Hallows Eve”  For this, all the songs relate to death, dead, dying, died, kill and murder!  Mmwwhahaa!  Here’s the playlist.

On The Rocks

BD214The idea of this edition of Brain Damage comes to us from Brett in Tampa Florida.  The concept is Floyd songs that rock. He came up with a pretty good selection of  songs that rock, in his opinion (and mine), in no specific order.  Here’s Brett’s playlist. Enjoy!

If you have any suggestions for a themed playlist, email them to me at thedoctor@floydpodcast.com

English Summer

BD213This edition of Brain Damage is the perfect soundtrack to your lazy summer day.  It’s very similar to an older, popular themed podcast, SundownGrab an iced tea, or lemonade, kick your feet up and relax.  You deserve it!  Here’s the playlist.  Enjoy!

Sweet July

Pink+FloydI did it.  Somehow I managed to find what very little spare time I had to work on this month’s edition of Brain Damage.  I’m relieved because I didn’t want to skip a month.  There’s no theme for this one but its got a nice collection of recordings with a few I’ve never featured before. Its mostly early material book ended with more contemporary solo material.  I hope you enjoy it.  Here’s the playlist.  Please comment and if you can, donate.  Thank you!
