from pf-roio db:
The BBC’s “Omnibus” series documented the Apollo 11 space mission in a programme entitled “What If It’s Just Green Cheese?”. Pink Floyd performed live in the studio, providing suitably spacey music throughout the programme. Collector have had audio tapes of this for several years and refer to the music as “Moonhead”. The band claim they improvised the entire six-minute instrumental from scratch.

from “In The Flesh” book :
A live Tv recording session for the one-hour BBC1 TV Omnibus special entitled ” So what if its just green cheese”, one of many programmes covering the Apollo 11 moon landing. It was broadcast on 20.7.69 at 10.00pm and featured Judi Dench, Ian McKellen, Michael Horden, Roy Dotrice, Marian Montgomery, Dudley Moore and the Dudley Moore Trio. Pink loyd performed a 5-minute improvisation which has become known as “Moonhead”

Royal Festival Hall Rehearsals
HRV DVD 008 Rev. A

DVD Audio rip

Lineage: Original 16mm Film > Submaster > DVDR(0) > DVDR(x) > DVD video files > DVD Audio Extractor > wav@16/48 > *flac@16/48

  • Tracked with CD Wave, encoded to flac 8 with Flac Frontend, tagged and verified

16/44.1 flacs included in separate folder, downsampled with Adobe Audition 3.0.1, pre-post filltering set to high

To achieve a better flow for the benefit of the enjoyment of the rehearsals and the discussions between I deleted a few spots of silent footage which you can admire on the original DVD if you like but would be out of place on this audio rip:

  • 15 secs of silence (screen credits) at the start
  • 1 min 10 secs silent footage from stalls between Drum Instrumental and Organ Music
  • 13 secs of silence at the end

Resulting track list:

  1. Afternoon (Biding My Time) / Discussion / “Wild Tape” (4:20)
  2. The Beginning (Green Is The Colour) / Beset By Creatures Of The Deep / Discussion (2:29)
  3. Discussion / Nightmare (Cymbaline) / Discussion (3:33)
  4. Drum Instrumental (Ummagumma) (0:37)
  5. Organ Music Take 1 – A Saucerful Of Secrets (End Part) / Organ Music (3:20)
  6. More Organ / Instrumental (5:50)
  7. Chucking Out Time (Anthony Stern getting busted) (3:08)

(All songs are fragmentary)

Total time: 23:21

Apart from this unusual and fascinating chance at hearing the Floyd rehearse at this early point of their career, the discussions (well, discussions… it’s mostly Roger making observations) between rehearsals and at the end (where Anthony Stern is asked to leave) alone are worth the price of admission in my opinion.

Original notes from HRV DVD 008 Rev. A (with thanks to RonToon and the Harvested team):

This is about 20 mins of b/w footage shot at the Royal Festival Hall by Anthony Stern (it sez so right there on the opening slate). It seems that Stern was called earlier that day by the band to shoot this amazing and unique performance. Unfortunately, he didn’t go through all the proper channels, and only got permission from the RFH to shoot the rehearsals and only in certain areas of the venue. This becomes apparent when the venue’s security “busts” him and orders him to turn over all of his equipment. This all takes place while the camera is still rolling, but with audio only! You can hear the escalating dialogue between Anthony and security/management as he pleads his case. Too bad he didn’t go through the proper channels and pay for the rights to film the actual show, as he was evidently prepared to do, but at least we have this incredible rehearsal footage to marvel at. That’s the story as Stern has pretty much confirmed.

It seems that the last bit (Rick playing the final part of ASoS of the huge house pipe organ) was outta synch, but I was able to fix that properly. Other songs include Biding My Time (with Rick briefly on trombone), Green is the Color, Cymbaline, and ASoS… all incomplete but still wonderful to watch!

This Rev.A is a substantial upgrade from the original release. The picture is much less washed out and the contrast is a lot better (the blacks ar darker) w/o any video enhancement.

This time around I can take an educated stab at the gen:

The original 16mm film was transferred at a professional studio. I’m not sure what tape stock it was transferred to, but there is a good chance that a DVD was made at the same time. I can only assume that a clone of that DVD was passed on (if it was done properly, it should be the same, but I can’t know that for sure). I then received a perfect clone of that DVD which I converted to an NTSC MPEG-2 stream (CBR 8) and a
PCM stream. My previous release came from an unknown PAL VHS source.

Enjoy!
