Show #146 Release date: 11. January, 2010
Welcome back! During the holiday break Harvested Records gave a select few a sneak peak at an upcoming project with a set of master recordings from Floyd’s 1971 Montreux gig. These are the raw files as received and Harvested will be creating a definitive version in the near future.
“I had my UHER ‘custom unbuilt’ in multiple parts, so I could sneak it in more discretely. Then I built a whole ‘neck-holder’ (like the one Bob Dylan’s used to hold the harp), a heavy construction sewed in a tough-tissued jacket (often way to hot to bear at concerts) and the two mics were placed niftily beside each ear hidden by my long hair…”
He also went on to say that he’s never released this recording directly from the master tapes… that is until now. The Pavillion, Montreux, Switzerland, 18. September 1971.
