Art & The 60s

This is a very, very highly recommended documentary. It fills in a lot of history of The Underground Scene that is typically not reported in other documentaries. For example, we learn loads of great stuff about the Indica Gallery and various artists that have shows there. I should warn you, however, that some of the "art" is... very ugly and should not be viewed by young people, old people, people with gentle constitutions, or, well, anybody else. The chapter is called "Skip This Bit" - and you almost certainly should. The rest is absolutely aces!!

A Saucerfull Of Videos

A wonderful collection of do-it-yourself Early Floyd videos created by a night-shift worker at a Home Shopping Channel. He was bored. Thanks!

The Art Of Tripping - Rev A

Here is another of Storm Thorgerson's documentaries. In it, he tries to answer another intractable question. Do mind-altering drugs help or hinder the artistic process? There are those who would say that drugs provide inspiration or allow different types of thought. But, others may suggest that drugs do all sorts of things (depending upon the drug) - mood swings, addiction, severe alteration of thought, which would prevent (or at least slow down) the artistic process. Mr. Thorgerson interviews loads of artists and historians and biographers to try to get the best possible answer. This is a 2 part documentary. The first part covers all of history up to about 1955. The second part covers 1955-1994. Read more here. David Gilmour provides soundtrack music.

Elliot's Blimp

A wonderful collection of local news clips, EPKs, and other strangeness from Elliot's tapes.

Routes Of Rock

These are two documentaries broadcast on the BBC back in 1999. One is focused on the London Underground. They discuss the 14 Hour Technicolour Dream rather extensively. The other documentary presents the stories of a number of influential musicians who did not survive the 1960s. They included Mr. Barrett. Of course, he survived physically, but perhaps not mentally. Both documentaries feature loads of new interviews and archival films. They are absolutely wonderful.

Ruby Takes A Trip

I have a microbiologist friend who generously allowed me to borrow his video masters for a number of really, really cool items. One was the Rubber Universe documentary. This is another.

It's a pseudo-documentary by an interesting young woman named Ruby Wax. (She's better known in the UK than in the States.) David Gilmour provides the soundtrack music. Ruby has a mid-life crisis & decides to try to track down her hippie roots and explore her inner being. She visits all manner of religious weirdo, New-Age Loonie, and crunchy out-of-this-world freak that you could imagine. In the end, of course, she finds it all to be unsatisfying.

Come on... Take a Trip with Ruby! You'll have some good laughs & and she'll have you back the same day.

Time Shift - The History of Prog

This is a wonderful documentary - loads of groovy prog moments. (Prog = progressive rock ie: bands like Genesis, Yes, ELP, and ... well... probably Pink Floyd as well.)

Rubber Universe

This is a documentary Written & Directed by Storm Thorgerson. You can read all about it here. This is a wonderful film for anyone who likes science or nature films. The soundtrack music is by Alan Parsons. Apart from a few glimpses at material from the High Hopes video, there is no Floyd content.

Eight Miles High - promo VHS

The "broadcast" version of the documentary was issued on VHS in the States, but only sold to music educators, not the general public. Happily, I was able to arrange to purchase a copy. The advantages of this edition are that there is no Japanese narration or subtitles. But, it is also a bit shorter and the picture quality is not as sharp as the DVD source. When I built the DVD project, I added some bonus footage from a different documentary, "Have A Nice Decade", which also came out in 1994. Eight Miles High contains Roger's comments. Have A Nice Decade contains Dave's views. I wonder if they planned it that way ? B-)

Eight Miles High - Japanese

Probably the best documentary that you've never heard of... Made back in 1994 as a joint project between PBS and the BBC, this is one of the best documentaries on the subject of psychedelic music I have ever seen. There are loads of archival films and new interviews. This insanely obscure DVD contains about 15 minutes of unbroadcast material. Additionally, this remains the ONLY official DVD that contains portions of Syd's American Bandstand appearance. Sadly, there is a fair amount of Japanese narration and subtitles. But, I'll take that any day compared with overdubs! The interview of Peter Jenner speaking about the earliest version of the Floyd's lighting equipment is worth the price of admission all by itself.

Roger Waters - 2007-05-05 - 3 Sides Of The Moon - multi angle DVD (HOP 014)

I don't know if this is the "real" cover or not... Haven't found a better copy in any case. This is a brilliant multi-cam DVD of Mr. Waters performing his classic album. Live fan-produced DVDs just don't get much better than this...

Upcoming Weirdness

Howdy... I have another pile of David Gilmour related material uploading now... Each recording will have it's own .md5 in the archive that you can use to verify the unpacked tracks. However, in the event that you would also like to verify the .rar files prior to unpacking, I have placed one huge .md5 file here. Of course, you can always use Wordpad or similar to edit out the files that you may not have downloaded, so you can verify just those of interest. All of the upcoming .rar files together come to about 6.87 GB. Hopefully, you have a spare week or so to listen to them all!

Also of interest ... I have just located the proper art files of a previous post, "On Manhattan Island". I put the link on the old post here.

Richard Wright - Wet Dream

Cover Lay Down


Those folks know how to do things right.... Loads of groovy silliness in the archives as well...

Adam, Mike, and Tim - You're The Reason Why

This is the earliest confirmed Floyd-related recording. It was tracked down by those frisky folks over at Pigs On The Wing - many thanks! I wish I had some scans or other information to share. It sounds nothing like the Floyd. It's Rick Wright with a bunch of his school friends.


Broken China Interview & .mp3s

I'd just like to remind everyone that buried deeply in the archives is one of my personal favorite obscurities from the Broken China album - an interview taken from a promotional CD . You can find it here.

Also, if anyone wants any Rick Wright related .mp3 files, you should be able to get your fill over at Zinhof. (scroll down a bit)

Broken China Promo EP (The Orb Remixes)

This is a fan-produced re-release of some obscurities from Mr. Wright's Broken China.

Zee - Identity (Pigs On The Wing)

The earliest of all of the Pigs On The Wing releases, this beauty contains the original album as well as all of the alternate mixes. You'll find yourself listening to this one more often than you'd think.

Zee - Identity (official)

The good news is that the sound quality is quite nice. The bad news is that it doesn't contain *any* of the alternate mixes from the various singles. WTF?!?

Would You Buy A Ticket To This Show

I posted the audio version of this show previously. This 2 DVD set is probably the "ultimate" version of the '87 Atlanta Omni show. For everyone who hates Delicate Sound Of Thunder, please consider this alternative & wonder, quietly, why DSoThunder ever was released...

Future Posts - FYI

I recently found a large number of Gilmour concerts & have begun to post them. There are many more in the works. Also, I have posted a Kate Bush item or two in the past, rather casually, not thinking much about them. Even though it's been months, people keep writing very nice helpful comments and keep downloading the files. Many, many more people have downloaded Kate-related audio than the typical Floyd post. I am wondering whether or not there is simply a lot more Floyd out there to be had or pitifully little KB or both.

I'm planning to throw caution to the wind and post a Kate Bush DVD project that I created some time ago. If it is well received, I'll increase the ratio of Kate:Floyd substantially in future.

Roger In Rio - HRV Remaster

This concert was *supposed* to have been streamed online. I remember sitting there, ready to capture the web stream. But, it was cancelled at the last moment. I was, therefore, very happy to learn that the Portugese TV broadcast happened - and was captured by some kind soul. Sadly, though, it was full of all manner of technical glitches. Happily, the nice folks at Harvested spent a few hours sorting it all out for you nice folks.

Robyn Hitchcock - 120 Minutes - Songs Only

15-Sept-91 - Birds In Perspex
14-Feb-93 - The Rest

I have a number of episodes of 120 Minutes hosted by or featuring Robyn Hitchcock. Each is several hours (dual layer DVD projects) of mostly interviews and non-RH content. I thought it might be nice to compile Robyn's live performances together, as they are the content of primary interest among his fans. These are taken from original VHS tapes, so look pretty darn nice.
