From the 2016 European Capital of Culture, Wroclaw Poland, live from Freedom Square, in front of the National Forum of Music, Mr. Gilmour kicks off the 4th leg of his Rattle That Lock Tour, 25th June 2016. Joined by Polish jazz pianist Leszek Możdżer, and the NFM Filharmonia Wrocławska Orchestra conducted by Zbigniew Preisner. Here’s the playlist Enjoy!
For this podcast, practice makes perfect! It’s very similar to a previous podcast I did 10 years ago called “Soundcheck” (which makes for a great companion to this edition of brain damage) anyway… this time, its a complete 1994 soundcheck! When I was going through stuff, I was surprised that I never featured this entire rehearsal before. I’ve only played a few bits and pieces. So… why not. All doctored up for your ears! A rare glimpse into very laid back Pink Floyd rehearsal. Here’s the playlist.
FoH is for Front of House. This podcast is chuck full of goodies. Roger breaks out three new songs and David adds a guitar solo! For this episode, we go back to the desert for a crystal clear, front of house recording of Roger’s first weekend performance at Desert Trip, Empire Polo Grounds Indio, California 9. October 2016. It’s a long one. Here’s the playlist
This is not a new podcast but its a podcast I’ve had hidden since 2011 just for fun. On occasion I would post it to Floydpodcast’s Facebook Fan Page and that was probably only two or three times over the years. So if you have it already, cool and if not…here you go! I decided it was time to include this on the website for easy access and for all to see. Recorded at Wembley Arena, in London, between the 15th and 17th of November 1974. Here’s the playlist
Most of this is from the “David Gilmour In Concert” video that was recorded and broadcast by MTV and released onto VHS in 1984 (now out of print). All three nights at Hammersmith Odeon, London, were filmed. This is the last night, 30. April, 1984 with special guests Roy Harper and Nick Mason. Some tracks had to be sourced elsewhere to make this a complete concert. I explain in the podcast. Here’s the playlist. Hope you enjoy! Please consider a small donation, if you do. Thank you.
Ever since Roger released his Wall soundtrack, I’ve been playing around with recreating the entire evening’s experience, much like what I originally wanted to do for the Intermission podcast back in February. This time I used the the film soundtrack but discovered that Roger removed several bits from the original live performance so I, very carefully, put them back using material from the June 2011 Duesseldorf gig. Here’s the playlist. Enjoy this little Christmas gift!
If 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!
There’s nothing cooler than having a raw, unedited version of an officially released concert. This gem of a soundboard recording surfaced not to long ago. I believe its recorded off a close FM radio frequency so people with hearing problems can hear a nice and clear feed from the board. I could be wrong. It was originally missing a little segment of “Sorrow” and “Money” due to tape flips but I patched those both up, remastered and doctored for supersound. Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum, Long Island, N.Y., 20 August 1988. A couple of other unrelated goodies are thrown in for good measure. Enjoy! Please donate and comment. Thank you. Here’s the playlist.
It’s more like the Pros And Cons of Floydpodcasting. After two months of editing, I have to admit, all the work was worth it. Please forgive me if I do say so myself, this sounds fucking incredible. Roger Water’s “The Pros & Cons of Hitchhiking – North American Tour” featuring Eric Clapton. From the Rosemont Horizon, Chicago, Illinois, twenty nine years ago today, 26, July, 1984. Enjoy and please don’t forget to comment here or on facebook. Oh and also please consider a small donation. Even if its just one dollar, every bit helps afford licensing and hosting costs. Thank you!

It feels like its been a while since a full Floyd concert’cast. I’ve been meaning to feature this one for a long time but kept putting it off. It’s Pink Floyd’s first visit to Atlanta Georgia in ten years. Over a three day period, they filmed and recorded in what was supposed to be a precursor to ‘delicate’. Doctored up and whatnot… Enjoy and thanks for leaving comments! I love them. Don’t stop!
