Like the echoes of a distant past, dozens of times that have not been released before Pink Floyd The album quietly hit streaming services this week. All concerts took place from 1970 to 1972, including the band’s release date Atomic Heart Mother (1970), Meddle (1971), and Covered by clouds (1972), and began playing songs from The Dark Side of the Moon (In 1973).
One recording – a Tokyo performance in March 1972 – featuring a near-complete performance of Dark side in sequence, one year prior to release. The songs are loose and noisy in a way that can’t be heard on the studio version. Many of the record’s famous sound effects were completely different, and “Money” featured some unusual percussion.
Recordings from September and October 1971 are also notable for clipping the days in which Pink Floyd hid in the quaint Pompeii amphitheater, where they played with an audience of ghosts for a concert film. released next year. The live albums contain songs from the film, including renditions of “Echoes,” “A Saucerful of Secrets,” and “One of These Days,” all of which are featured in the film’s Pompeii sequence. .
All recordings are copyrighted by Pink Floyd Music Ltd., indicating that these are official releases by the band. Their release can be timed to extend the rights of the recordings. In 2013, a Sony representative explained Bob Dylan’s acyclic release by telling Rolling Stone, “Copyright law in Europe was recently extended from 50 to 70 years for everything recorded in 1963 and beyond. With everything before that, there is a new ‘Use it or lose it’ clause. It basically says, ‘If you don’t use the recordings for the first 50 years, you won’t get any more. “
