Dark Side Of The Silverdome

Show #108 Release date: 5. April, 2008

The Silverdome, Pontiac, Michigan, 15. July, 1994.  This is perhaps the most historically significant engagement during Pink Floyd’s Division Bell Tour.  Not much else during the tour, in the grand scheme of things, could compare to the second night in Detroit when the audience was treated to a first entire performance of Dark Side Of The Moon since 1975.  We start out with a unique version of Saucerful Of Secrets recorded at the “Amsterdam Rock Circus” in Olympic Stadium, Amsterdam, Netherlands, 22. May, 1972.  It’s ALL doctored up for best possible sound.  Enjoy!

Stage of The Alps

Show #98 – Release date: 9. November, 2007

Originally featured on Brain Damage Show #32, Air date: 1. April, 2005 –  Stadio delle Alpi, Torino, Italy, 13. September 1994.  Torino was former host city of the 2006 Winter Games, It’s located in the shadows of the Italian Alps close to the French and Swiss Borders.

Taken from the soundboard, this recording could render your copy of PULSE useless had Floyd played all of Dark Side of The Moon on this one, but alas, they don’t.  So, you better keep your copy of PULSE around for good measure.

This is the only soundboard recording floating around from Floyd’s 94 Division Bell tour.  The audience as well as the band were having fun and David even gets to practice his Italian with the crowd.  During Money, David slips up on the lyrics and starts laughing.  Later, the girls on back up vocals start having their own fun when they unexpectedly started jamming on kazoos

No Drop of Waters

Show #88 Release date: 6. July, 2007

The last podcast stirred up a great thread.  I planned to feature the first Waterless Floyd gig but decided to do an experiment instead.  I have for you, Floyd’s last two albums.  Performed live (except Cluster One) all recorded off the soundboard, all arranged in the same order as each album.  This podcast was lots of fun to put together.  Hope you dig it.

Sensory Overload

Show #83 Release date: 27. April, 2007

At the end of one of my older podcasts, I quickly gave my cell phone number.   Nobody noticed and months went by until a gentleman from Philadelphia called me up.  He left a message and in the message he mentioned something that sparked the entire reason for this podcast.  He shares with us his experience “seeing” Pink Floyd play live at Veterans Stadium in Philadelphia, 2. June, 1994.  This one’s doctored up for super sound.

Foxboro 1994

Show #45, Release Date: 2. December, 2005
(Original Show #8, Air Date: 15. May, 2004)

Kicking around on a piece of ground in my hometown! Foxboro, Ma., 19. May 1994.  It was a cold, damp, drizzly “English” Thursday evening, typical Spring weather for May and perfect weather for a Pink Floyd show. It was the second night during their three night stay in the Boston area. It was Section B2, 19th Row (15 feet in front of the soundboard), Seat 19 (center stage). WOW! It was truly an incredible sensory overload.

The day after the concert, the sun was shining bright with few clouds in the sky, yet it was quite windy. Nonetheless, Pink Floyd’s airship The Division Belle made a rare appearance.
