Not long ago, and while ordering mi RoIOs folder, I suddenly realized that I had many of the recordings of the "blues" theme that Pink Floyd used to play between 1970-1972.A couple of downloads (and some research) later I found that I had gathered and ordered all the available recordings of that musical piece that the Floyd usually played live as an encore.At first this was a very personal project for individual entertainment only. But then I thought that this could be of some interest for other people as well. So I decided to make it shareable.When I was finishing, I found that there already was a blues compilation on this tracker: http://yeeshkul.com/forum/showthread.php?t=6875 However, that compilation is incomplete and includes a couple of themes not strictly related to the "blues" theme.This compilation I made gathers a total of 28 musical pieces starting with the Blues piece the Floyd recorded for the Zabriskie Point movie and which would become the base for most (if not all) of the performances of this famous theme that the Floyd started to play live just a couple of months after the Zabriskie Point sessions. They are presented in chronological order, and run until 1977 when Pink Floyd last played a blues improvised number. I believe these are all the known recordings of the blues. PF may have played the blues several other times, but no recordings of them exist (at least until the date of release of this compilation).To keep certain coherence in this compilation, I decided to gather only the pieces that were closely related in their origin, structure and interpretation. That's why you are not getting here *all the blues* pieces the Floyd ever did. So here's no space for "Jugband Blues", "Seamus", "Carrera Slow Blues", or "I'm a King Bee". As you can understand, they don't belong here.For each piece the date and place is given, as well as the alternate titles some of them had received in bootleg editions, so that you can identify them without problem. In the artwork and the info file inside this torrent the sources I used are cited as thoroughly as possible in case you would like to get the complete original concerts.In making this compilation, fade-ins and fade-outs were applied in all the songs to create a smoother flow of the music.In all the instances but one the source files were kept in its original form without any manipulation. The only one that I manipulated was the Ann Arbor recording. Since Ann Arbor's source has a big channel problem (the left channel was mostly noise almost without music) and a huge hiss presence everywhere, I decided to duplicate the right channel into the left one, and apply some EQ to get rid of the most serious hiss. Now the Ann Arbor blues is a bit more listenable than before, though by no means I claim it to be "better" and of course is farther than "purer".
