Whether they did sell out or not, I don't know, but they did play with Zappa:

Did Pink Floyd sell out?

Yes, they sold out numerous venues over the years.

I can count the number of times I have had the privilege to attended Pink Floyd/Roger Waters concerts on one hand.....with a curled up pinky to spare.....

The David Gilmour version for the Momentary Lapse of Reason tour
The Roger Waters version for the Dark Side of the Moon, the Wall and Us + Them

all were spectacular.....and, sold out.....

WAV and FLAC
DOWNLOAD EXPIRES ONE WEEK FROM TODAY

House Announcement in English

Announcer: 'Smoking is not allowed.'
Crowd: <gasps>
One female crowd member: 'BITCH!'
Announcer: 'Yeah, I'm sorry about that as well. Er, the photographers in the front here will have to leave after 6 and a half minutes, give or take, because they are blocking the view of the most expensive seats, and that would be a pity.'
Crowd: <claps>
Announcer: 'And then I got this note that Nicky of the Pink Floyd wrote for us. The concert consists of two parts; it tells the story of a man...'
Crowd: <laughs & claps>
Announcer: '... and the journey he makes. The first part represents 24 hours of his daily life: wake, work, rest, make love, dream and wake again. The second part is about the hardships he suffers and the mysterious ending of the story.'
Crowd: <claps>

01. 'House Announcement'

The Man:
02. Daybreak (Grantchester Meadows)
03. Work
04. Tea Time
05. Afternoon (Biding My Time)

14. The Labyrinths Of Auximenes
15. Footsteps / Doors
16. Behold The Temple Of Light
17. The End Of The Beginning (A Saucerful Of Secrets)

Total Time: 81m32s

Source: Stereo Soundboard -> Pre-FM Reel-To-Reel Master -> CDR -> FLAC -> Mastering 2020 > FLAC

Recorded Live to 2-Track by the NOS Mobile on September 17, 1969 @ Concertgebouw, Amsterdam, Netherlands for broadcasting by VPRO Radio.

Producer: Han Reiziger (VPRO)
Recording & Mixing engineer: Dick Sleeman (NOS)
Mastering: Prof. Stoned

Prof sez: For a long time, this was one of the most spectacular Pink Floyd ROIO's available. It was finally officially released in 2016 on the Early Years 1967-1972 boxset. This version has been derived from a digital clone of the complete VPRO master, so this is essentially from the same source that camp Floyd used. I mastered this version for myself because the Early Years mastering doesn't do it for me. Also, this version is fully unedited which means it's 5 minutes longer than the official release (granted, half of that is the not rather exciting 'Tea Time' in which the group drank tea on stage). The first 20 seconds are absent on the VPRO master clone and are taken from an old radio broadcast.

'The Man & The Journey' was a suite which was performed live from spring to the fall of 1969. It consists of previously released songs and some at-the-time new material, including a few tracks which ended up on Ummagumma. Evidently, the concept is fairly loose, and this is probably why it didn't stick with the group. Still, this is a fascinating document and with great sound quality, if you consider this was made for a radio broadcast in 1969.

Recorded Live to 8-Track and filmed in the Roman Amphitheatre in Pompeii, 4-7 October 1971
Additional recordings made at Studio Europasonor, Paris, 13–20 December 1971

Recording Engineers: Charles Rauchet & Peter Watts
Mixing Engineers: Andy Jackson & Damon Iddins (2016) except 07-08: Paul Berthault
Mastering: Andy Jackson
Remastering: Prof. Stoned (sourced from blue-ray version of the film)

Prof sez:

I've been wanting a to do a version of this awesome document for ages, since I find none of the released versions sonically satisfying. I decided to use the 2016 remix as my source rather than the original stereo mix. The original mix simply wasn't very well done and has always lacked fidelity. It served us well as an accompanying soundtrack to the amazing footage, but as a stand-alone audio document, it's just not doing the performance enough justice. The newly done mix from 2016 was disappointing at first listen. Its high-end is strong enough to kill an ant colony, and seems to have quite noticeable phase issues. Still, I decided to try my hand at making it a more pleasant listen. It seems the shortcomings are as much in the recording as in the mix itself, but after a thorough treatment with my trusted mastering suite, the end result is much better than I initially thought it could be. It's actually damn close to being the brilliant live-album that everybody always knew it could have been.

For completeness sake, I added the three bonus tracks. The last two are taken from the Harvested RevB, which in turn was taken from the Laserdisc edition from the ‘90s.

As for the music, this is simply the defining moment of Pink Floyd as a unit. Everything the band had worked so hard for after Syd's unfortunate demise was paying off in this very moment. It's not unlike The Who's ‘Live at Leeds’; the band simply rose above themselves. However, it comes with the added bonus that the concert was staged and filmed with the most incredible scenery. If you want to convince a noob what the fuss with Pink Floyd is all about, this document would probably be one of your best picks.

I prefer the bootleg version of "The Man and The Journey" over the commercially released version.

Everything else (re)mastered by Prof Stoned [Jackson did original masterings of Tr. 05,06,14-17]

Prof sez:

What if Pink Floyd had decided to hang it up in January 1968 and compiled a farewell album from the new material that they had recorded over the last six months?

The answer: We would have gotten a much better second Pink Floyd record, but we would also have been deprived of a lot of great music (without knowing it, of course). In The Beechwoods is a could-have-been project for my own entertainment. Obviously, it is not 100% authentic. The live version of Reaction In G would never have been used, since it is a fan-made recording that didn't come into the band's possession until the 2010s. But it is the only complete version with excellent sound known to circulate. I have taken the liberty to edit out 2 minutes because I felt it improved the quality of the performance. Vegetable Man and Scream Thy Last Scream were never mixed down properly in 1967/1968, so these rough mixes from 1974 - made for a nixed archive project - are the next best thing. In The Beechwoods was never finished but even as an instrumental it is quite a strong track.

For the bonus section, we have a part of the first "Top Gear" session the band did for the BBC. It appears in the best quality so far here, mastered straight from the original MP3 source brought into circulation about 12 years ago. This MP3 was sourced from a 90-minute cassette that the show's late original producer made for a friend from his master of the complete aircheck. The other two tracks that were aired on the show, Matilda Mother and The Gnome, also exist in this quality but do not circulate. The voiceovers are from Pete Drummond and the late John Peel. Only Flaming was used for the official boxset and with lesser sound quality; the other tracks, amazingly, were mastered from an off-air source.

'John Latham' was an experimental piece recorded in one take with Pink Floyd playing along to a short film called 'Speak' (which, by 2021 standards, looks like little more than a looped animation with a stroboscopic effect). I have edited this 30-minute recording down to an 11-minute composite. The edit is not linear; it starts out with music from the 3rd, 4th, and 5th parts before heading back to section 1 and 2, and then finally from sections 6 thru 9. Purists should stay away. But having said that, the result is probably closer to an actual free-jazz composition. It holds more tension as a whole, whereas the original too often gets bogged down in moments of confusion and aimlessness.

Vegetable Man and Scream Thy Last Scream are the first band-sanctioned mixes of these historically important songs. To my ears, the remixes are far superior to the 1974 ones and the 1987 mixes by Malcolm Jones, especially in this newly re-balanced form. However, they probably stick out a bit too much next to the vintage mixes, so I've put them in the back along with the enjoyable (if not quite essential) remix of Jugband Blues.

I have mastered all tracks except those that already sounded fine to me. I have redone the stuff from the box for the same reason I re-did Pompeii a year ago; it is mastered much too bright for me to enjoy. I suspect much of the criticism towards the 2010 mixes comes at least in part from the mastering. Funny enough, Apples & Oranges which I borrowed from "An Introduction To Syd Barrett" sounds great to my ears (this was done a few years earlier by the same guy).

Enjoy!
