Stunning Triple Disc Set Of Early Floyd Radio Broadcasts
  • Description

    Formed in London in 1965 by Syd Barrett (guitar, lead vocals), Nick Mason (drums), Roger Waters (bass guitar, vocals) and Richard Wright (keyboards, vocals), Pink Floyd had previously undergone previous incarnations and names before officially operating under the Pink Floyd moniker. Under Barrett's leadership, they released two charting singles and the successful debut album The Piper at the Gates of Dawn (1967). Guitarist and vocalist David Gilmour joined in December 1967, following which Barrett left in April 1968 due to deteriorating mental health. Waters became the primary lyricist and thematic leader, devising the concepts behind the band's peak success.

    This new 3CD Boxed set celebrates and documents Floyd’s early, post-Barret era, the time the band released such legendary albums as A Saucerful of Secrets, Ummagumma, Atom Heart Mother and Meddle, and during which they produced a number of stunning sessions and live shows for FM radio broadcast.

    DISC ONE here, features Pink Floyd’s July 1970 concert, recorded at London’s Paris Theatre in front of an invited audience and broadcast live as ‘John Peel’s Sunday Concert’ on 16th July ’70. Bonus Cuts on Disc One comprise the group’s session recorded for and transmitted by Radio One’s Top Gear programme on 2nd December 1968.

    DISC TWO, includes another ‘Peel Sunday Concert’, recorded in the same venue, but this one a year later on 30th September 1971, and with bonus tracks from a second Top Gear session, this one from 12th May 1969

    DISC THREE here, concludes this enticing set with a concert the band played at the Altes Casino in Switzerland on 21st November 1970, also recorded for live FM broadcast, and transmitted across most of mainland Europe.
