Amsterdamse Bos 71

Here’s a nice gem from nearly 51 years ago and its never sounded better! Amstel Free Concert at Amsterdamse Bos, a beautiful park in the heart of the city. It seems the promoters from Paradiso worked very hard to get Pink Floyd on the bill and were added at the last minute. Its an “out of the ordinary” set for Pink Floyd, 26th June 1971. Here’s the playlist.

  1. Hi, I was at the concert in Amsterdamse bos in 1971. The forest is not in the center of the city, but between Amsterdam and Schiphol Airport. It rained that day and the concert was delayed due to earth fault, electrical problems due to the rain. They played late noon/early evening. I have been Pink Floyd fan since Umma Gumma, the Music is creating otherwordly emotions.

  2. Doctor, is this the same concert as ‘Celestial Instruments’? I’ve had that download in my playlist for a long time; I always return to it for the uniqueness of Floyd jamming with no vocals. Glad to listen to a redux / updated version of course.

    Fun to see “Humble Pie” listed on that poster. I hope they arranged the order of all those bands and the various setlists, for best audience effect. Hard to imagine America’s “Horse with No Name” being followed by ‘Careful With That Axe, Eugene’
