The Man And The Journey

Here’s the latest and this time, a revisit… a spotlight on Pink Floyd’s first conceptual piece, The Man And The Journey. It was a pivotal time for Pink Floyd and you can clearly hear the direction they’re starting to go down, so I figured I’d dust this recording off a little.

Someone released this one into the wild back in the late 90’s, but it wasn’t officially released until 2016. From the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, 17. September 1969. Here’s the playlist. Enjoy!

  1. This is the bootleg I used to give everyone who was interested in early Floyd. It usually blew their minds. In one case, my friend scared his daughter while listening in his truck. “What is THIS daddy? It’s scary!” I haven’t listened in many years. Thanks so much Doc!

  2. Wow, this was great to hear. I probably haven’t heard it for 17 years! I love the intro/outro tidbit. (“Isn’t this where…?”) Thanks again, Doc.

  3. This has always been one of my favourites and in fact one of the first bootlegs I ever bought on a CD in a record store in Prague back in 2001. It was the version with the radio speaker with a very calm voice.
    I remember listening to it on my Sony Discman on the busride at night back to Denmark. It was just perfect! 🙂
