Rare Floyd live recording on Belgian radio Print E-mail

Last night saw an unusual, vintage recording of Pink Floyd, broadcast on Belgian radio.

As part of Radio 1 Belgium's Cucamonga show, excerpts from the band's 5th December 1972 concert at the Sport Palais Vorst Nationaal in Brussels were aired.

Whilst the sound quality wasn't fantastic, it was great to hear. Starting with a version of Time, that was typical of the 1972 performances (with a nice guitar solo), one also heard Breathe Reprise (slightly strained vocals from David Gilmour on this one). An excerpt from the hilarious 1969 interview they undertook in Blackpool, England for a university publication follows, and things are concluded with a well-paced version of Careful With That Axe, Eugene (which features a short passage of Roger's Scottish ranting!).

The show was streamed on their website, and if you wish to hear the recording for yourself, go to Radio 1's Cucamonga page, click on "Behister de jongste uitzending", and on the radio player that launches, select your chosen quality based on your bandwidth/connection speed. The Floyd segment comes just after an hour into the show. The show will be available for one week.

Our thanks to Bart Azare and Pol Van Acoleyen for letting us know about this rather unusual airing!
