This comes directly from the 2 cd set I purchased in a used record store some
10 or so years ago.I'm not sure if this is a soundboard recording or not I'm
no expert when it comes to audio,so perhaps someone can shed some light on that
matter.Either way it is an excellent recording and quite enjoyable to listen to.
I've seen that there were a few other releases of this show,I've never heard
them so I can't say how this one would stack up against the others.


NEW: Pink Floyd live in Montreux 1970 - 2CD - November 22

Pink Floyd
Altes Casino
Montreux, Switzerland
November 22nd 1970

Source: audience recording / recorder 1* + recorder 2

Disc 1 - Recorder 1 (62:50m)
1. Announcer (0:10m)
3. FAT OLD SUN (12:36m)
4. CYMBALINE (10:54m)

Disc 2 - Recorder 2 (41:23m)
2. THE EMBRYO (12:07m)

The 2nd night at Montreux unearthed, though not in fantastic shape, this is
all we could find. This came to me as a mix of 2 recorders, what i call
recorder 1 sounding really nice, a nice EX (and it sounds as being an old
soundboard recording... but who knows, for now, let's call it recorder 1)
and recorder 2, which sounds inferior but decent really.

Both recordings are incomplete, and they were kindly given to me by Piggy,
from his own Reel he got from an 'old hippy' some years ago, which he
brought to a professional studio to transfer to DAT (which cost him $75!).

Was hard to compare to what we have from the night before, but after an
extensive comparison of the announcements before Green is the Colour from
recorder 1, and even some drum fills and patterns, we came to the conclusion
that this is indeed a genuine recording from the 2nd night.

The story with recorder 1 is that it sounds as an old soundboard recording,
more than an audience one, besides, from some info that Piggy gathered, it
says that this recorder 1 was broadcasted on the radio, so this 'recorder 1'
could be a recording from the radio, or it could be even from the EMI acetates,
since both nights were professionally taped for a future release, and also,
this rec1 includes an announcer, but i cant pinpoint if this announcer is right
on the stage or if it's some kind of Radio introduction. Also, one of the
recorders is said to be recorded on an AKAI recorder with 2 mono microphones,
6m in front of the stage, but i cant tell which one of the 2. So for now, till
some info appears, we would call this 'recorder 1'.

No processing was done to the recording, only pitch and speed correction which
was really needed (recorder 1 ran slow and recorder 2 ran fast, with the final
portion of CwtAE being damaged and running very fast, as the reel was ending,
if you know what i mean). Also, recorder 1 suffers of some channel dropping,
but we decided to leave the source as we received it. There some hiss on
recorder 1 too, but this is how we obtained it. Also, even though this was
speed corrected, some speed fluctuations still occur. Seems this reel wasnt in
the best conditions but hey, does that matter?

The performance is nice, i like it better than the one from the previous night,
great versions of Fat Old Sun and Cymbaline.

I hope you enjoy this show as much as i did.

RE-UPLOAD: Pink Floyd live in Amsterdam 1969 - 2CD - September 17 - soundboard

Pink Floyd
Complete Concertgebouw 1969
September 17, 1969
Concertgebouw, Amsterdam, Netherlands

Very cool, very eclectic show. Some awesome psychedelia here. An excellent recording that lent itself well to the remastering process. Some of the audience passages were really loud compared to the show material and that was evened out.The low end on the orignal was a bit out of control and the high-end was dull. Now the whole thing is much more accurate in range, and digitally maximized. It's almost as if you were there.
