That makes me wish I went to that gig even more. Ouch
 
but that's awesome. I hope we get some sort of live CD from all this.

I'm running still, I shall until, one day, I hope that I'll arrive

Great pics, thanks for posting them.
It is fantastic to see these pieces being played, especially Atom Heart Mother. Gary Kemp was a revelation.

A work colleague has offered me a spare ticket for the Roundhouse show in May. Really looking forward to seeing them again.

Has anyone here had the chance to see him yet on the N. American tour? I was just wondering how it was going.

It's great when old music can be reinvigorated.   

Hmmm, Boston?   That means they'll prob be in the Bay Area at some point.

I think of lot of 'prog' folks are very excited about this recreation of early Floyd with Nick and some fine musicians - I'm just hoping they can make their way up to the North of the UK to immerse myself in all of this. The development of early prog clearly owes a debt to this period of Pink Floyd.

Hi,

Weird how the "prog" folks are kinda ignoring this ... it's like they don't "get it" and wonder what all that mishmashing was about, since it did not have lyrics!

This is where almost all of it came from, and folks don't seem to understand where things like Yes, Genesis and so many others actually came from and learned from.

Just plain strange and weird!

Hi,

A few observations on the Nick Mason's video on the blooptube.

SPOILED! NO CLOSE UPS!

The video business for the past 40 years has been about the closeups up to and including the half nekkid veeman, and on this particular one, it was just very far with one zoom that would embarrass grandma 50 years ago because it showed that the dress was old! Oh, btw, the closeups in MTV were always overdone, and the "sexy-ness" stopped there. You know how that goes ... familiarity .... 

I would have liked a bit more work on tightening the idea of the video, but honestly? I kinda think that this was just a sort of Nick's birthday party ... or drinking party ... or more chips and beans!

FABULOUS!

There are no bands today (2018 or something like that!) that even come close to the ability and freedom of that time when it came to the music, and you can hear it in the versions of all the pieces in this concert. Not quite the Syd Barrett songs, but his two long pieces stood out. 

If there is one thing that was clear about the music at that time, that helped make PF so big and famous in concert BEFORE their DSOTM thing, it was that they were an amazingly strong band and that the tripping was far out, and when they went "quadraphonic", which was sometime in early 1972 or thereabouts, they blasted everyone out with sound effects and music moving all over and around you which was as close to a TRIP as you could possibly imagine. 

One thing that you can see here is that there was (at the time) a certain freedom to doing things, and very few of the pieces were defined/designed to be a song, but a musical journey that you followed and loved going along with.

You might find something like it today, but you can not get the feeling of the control and "song" side of things that (for me!) bring things down from the strength and value of the music itself.  Today, people rely on LYRICS to tell them about the trip and you figure you don't need the "meandering" to fly around anymore ... a horrible and lousy substitute for the real thing.

Watching this, I had a few thoughts and cries ... of a time, that has gone by and is largely forgotten in the music "business", that continually refuses to allow for music to be free, and this intimidates bands from getting away from a song ... everything is just a song, by people afraid of tripping with the music, figuring that it is as bad as the dope in those days, when they really have no real necessary connection for their existence. 

It's nice to see Nick Mason do this, and for once do something that has more value in the definition of what became PF, that both RW and DG took on, but really forgot their ability to have fun and fly and play things in a manner that was not mechanic, and controlled as much as the later shows were. You knew the songs, at that time, but in the old days, you did not need exactly to "know" many things and many times, you had never heard that thing before ... but you sat there and watched and enjoyed it ... and this video shows that there is a lot in that time, that we still do not know, enjoy and appreciate ... and until the day that we take a good look at it, we will never really understand or appreciate an incredible period of music and arts ... that the media would rather forget, and make you think that it never existed!

Some fairly good recordings of a number of full shows are on youtube. Not as good as a proper DVD of course, but of bearable up to enjoyable quality.
