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!

  1. This one is incredible!! Don’t believe I’ve actually really heard it before.
    The quality is amazing and it’s a killer performance! You really get a sense of actually being there.
    Thanks 🙂

  2. This might be my favourite of this period. Never heard a better Embryo or Careful With That Axe. The perfect bridge between the two eras of Floyd.

      • Hi Doc,
        First listen, it is glorious! I still really like the MVQ ‘Since We Were Teenagers’. You have a wider soundscape, at times chorus vocals were clearer with lovely echo. I loved it as one file because the transitions between songs ( particularly between GM and AD) are beautiful. I should be able to do this on my CD player skipping track gaps somehow.
        Will keep listening.
        Respect, Keith.
