Just posted is a newly created video celebrating the lovely, pastoral Roger Waters track Grantchester Meadows, coupled with a Pink Floyd performance of the track which appeared on BBC radio, on 12th May 1969.

The soundtrack of the video, below, features acoustic guitars and vocals from Roger Waters and David Gilmour, plus additional piano from Richard Wright and taped songbirds, evoking a summer’s day in Grantchester, a small village close to Cambridge, England. The performance footage is from the KQED TV broadcast in San Francisco, 1970. The full recording of the KQED show is on the upcoming Pink Floyd: The Early Years 1965-1972 box set, as is the BBC radio session. Full details of the 27-disc box set can be seen here.
