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!

It’s the 1974 British Winter. Plink Floyd has added three new songs taking up the entire first set and revamped and improved their production for The Dark Side of The Moon set. From Empire Pool, 15. November 1974.  Listen to this podcast to find out how you can WIN a very cool A3 print of the image shown from Rockarchive.com!  Click the playlist for more details! Good luck!

 

Fillmore West 2.0

Sometimes better versions of concert recordings or more complete versions pop up over time. This podcast is an upgrade to a recording I featured 13 years ago. A much better version recently surfaced so I figured why not pay a revisit. It’s slightly doctored for supersound but credit goes to Buffalofloyd of Yeeshkul for fixing this up. It’s an epic gig from Fillmore West, San Francisco, CA. 29, April. 1970.  Here’s the playlist!

Down In A Pig Mine

I hope this finds you well. Here’s the latest podcast, finally. This is taken from a RoIO called California Stockyard, recorded on 7th of May 1977, at Anaheim Stadium in Anaheim, California. 

A ton of doctoring when into this. Heres the playlist. Dig it!

Live In Brussels

For this installment, we go back to 5th of December 1972, Brussels Belgium. The recording was produced by a taper named “OPUS 5”, it is a very good to borderline excellent stereo recording but it needed some help. I explain more in the podcast but its all doctored up for supersound! We also close the podcast with a new track by Jon Carin!  Here’s the playlist!  Please consider a small donation?  Thank you for your support!

Santa Monica 1970

I figured it’s time for a good old fashioned Pink Floyd concert from the spring of 1970. How about something from the west coast, like Santa Monica, California at the The Civic Auditorium. Its a fantastic gig! A lot of careful work went into this recording which I can appreciate. I explain more in the podcast. I’m surprised this has flown under my radar for so long as it has but here it is and here’s the playlist!  Enjoy!

In Perfect Isolation

All done!  From my audio laboratory deep down in a bunker away from COVID19, riots, and what seems like the end of the world, here is the latest edition of Brain Damage!  For this we check out what Roger, Guy Pratt and David and his Von Trapped family have been doing to keep busy.  Here’s the playlist. Enjoy!
