Pink Floyd offers a nice gift for Christmas. Last year, the members of the group had already published a dozen unpublished concerts dating from 1971. This time, they reveal 18 recordings captured during their 1972 tour.
Silent since their last album The Endless Riverexclusively instrumental, Pink Floyd are back in the same way as a year ago, when they discreetly unveiled the recordings of twelve unreleased concerts from 1971.
This time, Pink Floyd reveals 18 live – recorded by amateurs – dating from 1972, after the release of the albums Meddle (1971) and Obscured by Clouds (1972), and before the legendary Dark Side Of the Moon (1973).
These mysterious publications highlight 18 dates. In the lot, we find their memorable visit to the Osaka festival in Japan on March 8, 1972, their concert at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles on September 22, 1972, that of Carnegie Hall in New York, but also forgotten dates such as that of the Palais des Sports of Poitiers.
If these recordings are not all of very high quality – like that of the concert in Saint-Ouen on December 1, 1972 –, they are a pleasure to hear. This bit of nostalgia is available on the Spotify of the group.
