Syd Barrett
Wondering & Dreaming
Vol.2 (1967)

1. Scene Special (Granada TV, 27-01-67)

Pink Floyd's perfomance was filmed on 27 january
and clips of "Interstellar Overdrive" and audio of "Matilda's
Mother" were used in Granada TV documentary arts programme,
which you found on this DVD.

Broadcast on the Granada ITV network on 7 february at 10.25pm.
It also included coverage of the infamous Albert Hall poetry reading in 1965,
perfomance art at the Roundhouse, a "happening" in Picadilly Circus and
interviews with various underground figures including Jim Haynes, Barry Miles,
John Hopkins & Paul McCartney.

Some Technical info:

Complete broadcast was taken from 2nd generation VHS copy,
to this day it was best quality copy in circulation.

Non-voiceover version actually comes from Granada TV archives,
unfortunately audio of early version of "Matilda.." not survived
without voiceover.

Excerpts are included here for best enjoy and for full picture of
London Underground

2. Dope movie (Jan. or Feb. 67)

Filmed by underground filmmakers Diane and Sheldon Rochlin
for their film "Dope".

Before summer of 2009, actually no one floyd collector
knows about this footage.
It was big surprise for all fans.

Short footage of UFO Club also included
(& feat. 1 second of further floyd footage!)

Date: still unknown. And music ! Some UFO regulars says:
it was Soft Machine!
3. Die Jungen Nachtwandler (24.02.1967)

24-02-67 - Late show with Brothers Grimm and film shows.
Pink Floyd's perfomance of "IO" and general scenes of UFO Club
were filmed by German TV on this night for inclusion in
one-hour documentary arts programme entitled
"Die Jungen Nachtwandler - London unter 21", that also featured
The Who. It was broadcast on the Bayerischer Rundfunk TV
network on 3 July 1967 at 11.00pm

(c) Glenn Povey

Master copy, thankfully, comes to me very recently.
It was best ever copy of this footage.

Best VHS source included here for historical interest only.

See The Who doco "Amazing Journey" i found footage
in UFO club, that NOT used in original documentary.
This is very brief excerpts of John "Hoppy" Hopkins and
John "Junior" Wood from Tomorrow band.

Unknown group in focus - actually Soft Machine

4. Arnold Layne (Promo video, late feb. 67)

A promotional film for their first single.
Filmed at Wittering Beach on the south coast
of England by Derek Nice,
this promo premiered at the UFO club on 10 March, 1967.

Source of master copy (?) is unknown, but 16:9 version are taken
from "A Tecnnicolour Dream" DVD.

Filmed - late february 67 or very early march.

5. Beach Home Movies (Spring of 67)

Interesting footage of Syd and The Pink Floyd
running along a beach and also viewing through a view-finder.
They all look happy, and the footage is merged with scenes of water.
1min. 56 sec

The footage of Syd on the beach is taken
from the Pros & Cons 1984 EPK video
(at the beginning of the documentary,
some brief scenes of Syd appear as incrustations;
they were zoomed for the montage)
and other short extracts that were broadcast by MTV
during the 1988 Over The Wall special (when Rick talks about Syd).

Filmed in spring of 67

6. Abbey Road Home Movies (April 67)



8mm home movies filmed outside of Abbey Road Studios.
Filmed probably by Nick Mason.

Date is still under the question, but it's looks like April 67.

Thanks "Harvested" Again

7. Bouton Rouge (Arnold Layne second promo, 29-04-67)

Some floyd's collectors (including me, haha)
previously thinks, that this are probably from
"Fan Club" programm, but this is not correct.

Promo was made in England at early morning of 29 april,
then move to Holland to mime the same song on "Fan Club".
Back to the UK again - 14 hour Technicolour dream appearance
in the morning of 30th!
What a crazy day !

It was broadcast on French TV - 21-05-67 in show "Bouton Rouge".

First source is non-remastered (by me),
2nd - from Harvested, thanks !

8. Look Of The Week (14-05-67) - Source 1

On 14-05-1967 Pink Floyd performed "Pow.R.Toh.H." and
"Astronomy Domine" live on arts programme "The Look Of The Week"
broadcast by BBC2 TV at 11.15pm. Barrett and Waters were also interviewed
by the classical music critic Professor Hans Keller, who considered their music
to "terribly loud" and a "regression to childhood". This appearance was
thankfully archieved and various clips have been used in Pink Floyd related
retrospectives, most notably in the "Sound of the 60's" BBC2 series in 1991.

edited from "Sound of The 60's" PAL master + unknown very good VHS source

Seeing various documentaries, i found rare bit, that deleted from film.
It's included here.

Also 1994 promo + VH1 clip you get as nice bonus :)

5. Syd's Silent Home Movies - 1966 or early 67

Don't hold your breath too high! It was widely seen & available
snippet of one of Syd's home movies
(broadcasts in two documentaries, at least!).
Where it was shot & location still a mystery.
Probably it was shot in autumn of 66,
or early 67? Need to compare Syd's photos from this dates.

Original Comments:
Not sure if this one's ever been up here before, but it's a very clear and
well-balanced audience recording from a low-gen source, and complete. I
divided this roughly in half, since it does fit on two discs, but it could
be seamlessly fused back together at the break between the 'Breathe' reprise
and 'The Great Gig in the Sky' with a sound editing program for those who
would rather have the 'DSOM' set on a single CD and 'Echoes' on a third disc.
I don't know how this compares to any of the bootleg titles that may be out
there, but I do know there's at least one other source that's inferior
sound-wise and less complete. I welcome anyone else to post artwork, although
the sound files would probably have to be re-divided to match the track listings.

RE-UP: Pink Floyd live in Paris 1974 - 2CD - June 24

Pink Floyd Palais De Sports, Paris France 1974-06-24 TheTooleMan's remastering of a fresh transfer from the original reels - major sound improvement!

First of all, I can't go any further without personally thanking TheTooleMan for his great remastering job on this torrent. This was a messy, arduous process that involved trying to separate the music from the tape hiss. To that end, I'd like to offer up the following for discussion.

There is a point in time where frequency response matters less than what sort of musical sound is available for the ear to actually hear. Both of the prior transfers show SA from 20-20000Hz, but this one does not, and to your humble seeder should not. It's purposely cut off at a very low upper frequency just above the end of the recorder's response, leaving the hiss and noise behind. This has the effect of moving the portion of the response which actually contains the music forward. What remained has been EQ'd to bring as many of the sounds out as possible.

To wit (and I'd like your impressions on it): In this particular case, it wasn't what frequencies were on the tape. It was what frequencies contained music. Actually, that's a bit of nonsense to avoid me being blunt about it. What I really mean to say is *to the ears, it sounds a whole lot better, and to hell with the frequency response*.

Dowload it, listen to it, and see if you agree...

IMO, the SQ generally gets stronger as the show progresses with the 2nd set stronger than
the 1st partly because it contains almost all stereo.

Objective was to repair the drop outs and drop downs while retaining large contiguous
stereo segments, speed correct, balanced the channel levels/gain thoughout, remove repeated
segments and splice, remove some loud pops and noises, and smooth and edit where necessary.

lineage: BASF C120 cassette copy from master (1st gen)

incomplete recording, cuts in near the end of "Time". Received in a trade in early eighties from the original taper (Uli). As far as I know this recording was never circulated before. The quality I'd rate g to vg mono. This recording also could shed some light on the correct running order of the set (listen to the transition from "Eclipse" to "Careful.."). It has "One Of These Days" as the *last* song of the regular set which explains RW saying "Good night" after that song.

This is just a straight copy of my 1st gen cassette, no cuts, no fades.

"Platinum Crackers"

This is a "matrix" of the two recorders from this show.
The "Platinum Edition" (Fireman's 5) was combined with
"Cracked Crackers" by Seige72, and his notes are below.

seige72 notes:
It was a challenge (as these always are), but I think it turned out pretty well.
I used 'Cracked Crackers' to fill the cut in Any Colour through the beginning
of BD, then again between numbers, sometimes restoring the missing first
second or two of a tune (OoTD, ASoS in particular).  I also slowed down the
Fireman's Tapes source and made sure the pitch was the same before blending
the two together at each point.  Some volume adjustment was done as well,
specifically boosting the FT source and reducing CC, although it's tough to
get such different-sounding recordings to sound the same volume-wise.

I doubt this is the complete show as the "Eclipsed" suite is missing. However, it is a stereo recording which is quite unusual for this period and sound is very good for the time.

Label: kingjollytrouser
Quality: VG+/EX-

Comments:
The setlist is unremarkable save for the rarely played (in '72) "A Saucerful of Secrets." It's an overall good performance including a great "Travel Sequence" and "Any Colour You Like," and the bonus of a edit-shortened "The Mortality Sequence." (Other edits to beware of are a fade out- fade in near the beginning of OOtD, and an Echoes cut short.)

The date of this performance has been listed in various permutations as 1972.02.17, when the actual date was reportedly 1972.02.20.

Lineage: Audience (details unknown) > Original Vinyl (TAKRL 1903) > NAD 5120 turntable + Nagaoka MP-11 Cartridge > SP-2 Stereo Phono Preamplifier > CD Spin Doctor > aiff > flac level 6 > you. Sound quality is B+ or better.

This is a popular and widely circulated bootleg album from Pink Floyd. The performance featured a musical piece referred to at the time as "The Eclipse Suite," which would later become "Dark Side of the Moon."

Note the song titles: “The Travel Sequence,” “The Mortality Sequence,” and “The Scat Sequence,” which later evolved into “On The Run,” “The Great Gig In The Sky,” and “Any Colour You Like.”

I purchased this album in the 1970’s & with little wear it has maintained its luster, although some snap, crackle & pop exist. I did no post-transfer treatments. The center hole of the vinyl is a tad bit wide, which may add the least bit of wobble.

This new Harvested release provides the first of the two Montreux 1970 concerts in the most complete form and with the best possible quality. The main source was Victor's raw master transfer already shared last year. The ending part of Green Is The Colour and the following track Careful With That Axe Eugene, not present on Victor's master, were taken from "The Good" recorder that surfaced some years ago on "The Good... The Bad" RoIO ref. FA033.

Victor's raw transfer shared in November 2009 was first thought to be from the second concert, mainly because it matched "The Good... The Bad" RoIO that was labelled from 22Nov70. However, based on Victor's recollections of the two shows and some pictures from his reels, it now appears that the present show with the two "blues" encores is actually from 21Nov70 (this show ended late, forcing the band to finish with a quiet blues). The second concert was added at the last minute for the next afternoon at 2.30pm (Roger sarcastically said "good morning" to the audience) and at this second show the encore was  Interstellar Overdrive. But that's for our next release... ;-)

Victor's master is a superb audience recording and a compilation cassette he did in the past from both concerts was copied by someone and ended up on the 1995 "Smoking Blues" bootleg ("Smoking Blues" is therefore at least 1st or 2nd gen, and even with that lineage some people thought it was from soundboard or from some EMI acetates that are most probably pure legend). Embryo, Just Another Twelve Bar and More Blues from "Smoking Blues" are from 21Nov70, but the versions presented here are upgrades, coming directly from the master and with an uncut More Blues (fading out on "Smoking Blues").

Despite its fantastic quality, Victor's master had some flaws that needed to be corrected. The speed was not consistent throughout the show: for some tracks, speed was absolutely perfect, while for others speed gradually slowed down (probably an "end of reel" effect during the play-back). Fat Old Sun, Atom Heart Mother and A Saucerful Of Secrets suffered from that slowing-down phenomenon and speed was corrected for these three songs. There were some channel loss and levels fluctuations, the most obvious being during the first verse of Fat Old Sun. These were repaired. There were also drop-outs here and there, especially during the first 2 minutes of Cymbaline (one drop-out every 862ms, thus 140 drop-outs were manually corrected one by one in order to fully restore these first minutes of Cymbaline). The right channel became slightly weaker during Set The Controls and A Saucerful Of Secrets, where more drop-outs were present on that channel. These flaws were attenuated as much as possible. Last but not least, there were several cuts on the master: the very first chord of Fat old Sun was missing and has been restored, a short cut during Mother Fore (AHM) was carefully patched, and the central part of Celestial Voices (ASOS) that was missing due to a tape flip, was restored from another show in order to save the continuity and progression to the climax of the song.

The end of Green Is The Colour, Careful With That Axe Eugene and the first 30 seconds of Set The Controls were taken from "The Good" source. A lot of work was needed in order to restore that part, because of abrupt speed fluctuations during Careful, and also because "The Good... The Bad" RoIO comes from a "tweaked" tape: the original audio capture is pure mono (there is absolutely no stereo separation between the instruments), but someone found funny to play with the faders during the analog transfer, introducing artificial panning in order to fake stereo effects (these tricks were clearly done during an analog mixing of the recording, not in the digital world). Speed was corrected segment by segment, and levels were carefully adjusted in order to restore the original music as it was on the master, i.e. in the centre of the stereo image, before the artificial panning ruining most parts of "The Good... The Bad".

So there you are. The 21Nov70 Montreux concert in all its glory !

This is a rare case where all the stars were aligned: we have the best audience recording from that era, and at the same time the Floyd performance was really magic that night. All five songs of CD1 were delivered with fire and passion (including the most powerful rendition of Funky Dung ever recorded). And on CD2, the first part of A Saucerful Of Secrets (Something Else) shows the Floyd sounding like King Crimson would sound three years later. Another highlight of CD2 is Just Another Twelve Bar: even if not too interesting from a musical point of view, this song is a true rarity in Pink Floyd live repertoire (even if it's mainly based on the bass riff from Biding My Time).


RE-UP: Pink Floyd live in Amsterdam 1969 - 1CD - August 9 - soundboard - rare recording!

Pink Floyd
Celestial Instruments
1969-08-09
The Paradiso
Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Reportedly taken from the soundboard of the gig, this is a passage from
Povey's ITF book on that performance:

"Hilversum 3 Radio were recording this show for a future broadcast, but after
a microphone failure early in the show the band were forced to perform an
instrumental set and as a result the show was never broadcast"

So we've got a short set of 4 numbers with absolutely no vocals, but the SQ
is amazing, even before you take the age of the recording into consideration.

01. Interstellar Overdrive 04:19
02. Set The Controls For The Heart of The Sun 12:25
03. Careful With That Axe, Eugene 10:10
