Notes:

Sounds much better than the other versions available from this recording and is much
longer, including more tune-ups and announcements too (not only the intro to
Astronomy Domine actually, but more!)

Again, the recording itself would not deserve more than a VG/VG+ and the taper and the
lady talk really a lot (all it is clearly audible here, from this would be possible to pull out
an accurate transcription maybe, if you’ll be ever interested in knowing what they were
talking about) but this is a real low gen.

Sourced version, once you get this you’ll trash the rest!

A Saucerful of Secrets is obviously cut.

Comments from the original uploader: Grantchester Meadows and Green Is The Color are GREAT. Set The Controls For The Heart of the sun is a jolly good piece. Jupiters Eye/ Trip On Mars – one of these two is another version of Careful With That Axe, Eugene. Cymbaline is the best version so far. A Saucerful Of Secrets is only the last 6 minutes, which is too bad, because they’re great. Improvisation is SPLENDID, just great.

Overall: This is a really must have roio : the audience is very calm, and only applauds between songs. The quality of the recordings is not excellent, but good. -ANON

Strange collection, tracks are definitely not all from 19. Oct. 1969. Some of them are clearly studio recordings. Audience only between the songs audible. Saucerful features only the last part. Cymbaline is extra-long and extra-good!

This is a rare one, the bootleggers have spent quite some effort on this one, and have even made up some funky names. Jupiters Eye is a piece of Corrosion. Trip on Mars is the best version of Moonhead I’ve heard. Improvisation is Fingals Cave. And to complicate matters even further, the footsteps in Cymbaline have been replaced with Oenone. Grantchester Meadows and Green .. are probably taken from a performance of The Man and The Journey. All in all this ROIO is very enjoyable, since it has both a VG sound quality and the Performance/Rarity value is also high.

The only sad thing is that ASOS only has the last 6:44 minutes, but still, if you happen to see this cheap …

Also, if you’re hunting for authenticity this is *NOT* your disk, it’s a bunch of recordings from different concerts thrown together in one disc, coupled with some official but rare floyd songs -GERHARD

I think is a fairy forgery, not a ’69 London concert. “Jupiter’s eye” and “Improvisation” are from “Oneone /Fingal’s cave” studio outtake (listen to ‘Total Eclipse’), while the audience applause is artificial (all the same identical through the “concert”!!!, and it seems recorded in a small ambient, not in a theatre). The sound quality is variable (in “Grandchester Meadows” you can listen to scratches from vinyl source). Moreover “Grandchester Meadows”, “Set the Controls” are identical from those of Fillmore West, San Francisco Oct. 1970. The other live pieces are from the same or other ’70 concerts, I have not established yet. Thanks to Roio contributions for help in discovering this vile cheat. I’m very dejected about that. Please, let this ROIO to simpletons like me. -PELLE

“This is taken from various sources, not ‘London, October 19 ’70’ as stated in TAP 48 – including the BBC sessions, the Zabriskie Point outtakes from the Omayyad b*****g LP, and an ‘unknown’ concert. Furthermore, each song has been doctored by some unscrupulous mixer. Careful observation reveals that the audience applause (apparently from only a handful of people) at the start of each song is identical, the first being a 7.27 Grantchester Meadow.

Green is the Colour/Careful with that axe, Eugene (12.48) are the BBC performances, with the fake audience; although Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun (11.00) is a legitimate piece.

Jupiter’s Eye is where the butchery begins. After some research, I concluded that this is, in fact, Oneone from Omayyad, over-dubbed with the sound of bubbling mud (i.e. ‘Live at Pompeii’). Trip on Mars, meanwhile, is Moonhead from Music For Architectural Students. Cymbaline (18.28) is extended; about 6.15 in, the song is interrupted by footsteps and a slamming door. I realise that such effects were not uncommon for live performances of this track, but the abrupt switch makes me doubt that this was the work of the Floyd; who, even on a bad day, could do better. This is followed by a spacey intrumental passage – actually an extract from Omayyad’s live version of Interstellar Overdrive – then a repeat chorus, and a further ten minutes of Cymbaline.

Saucerful of Secrets (6.44) is, as stated in TAP 48, the Celestial Voices sequence from that track. The closing Improvisation (2.00) is a poor reproduction of Omayyad’s Fingal’s Cave, albeit with added audience !

However, despite all the trickery. I agree that Around the Mystic is an excellent CD; my favourite, in fact !” -TAP

It claims to be from one concert (London, 19 Oct 1969), but this is obviously a compilation of different performances. There are some annoying things with this RoIO. Some audience applause are added between songs (they are always the same!) and are in stereo. Most of the tracks are mono. It seems that this CD was mastered from vinyl, with some strange things added in the mix! So, sometimes one can hear “stereo” effects, but only because of the “stereo” vinyl scratches, and the stuff added.

1. Grantchester Meadows It’s from the KQED TV show, 29 Apr 1970. In the middle of the song, there is a very low noise (similar to a bass drum) that doesn’t appear on the original version (see “Colourful Meadows”). But this version seems to be “clearer” than the “Colourful Meadows” version (there is no crackle suppression as for “Colourful Meadows”). The performance is great. Ex-

2. Green Is The Colour This is in fact “Green Is The Colour” + “Careful With That Axe, Eugene”, again from the KQED TV show, 29 Apr 1970. It sounds far better than the “Colourful Meadows” CD. Again, a great performance. Ex-

3. Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun One of the 3 tracks in stereo. I have not identified the concert yet. VG+

4. Jupiters Eye It’s in fact “One One”, from the Zabriskie Point recording sessions, recorded in Rome, December 1969. It’s in stereo. But, sadly, they over-dubbed it with some bubbling sound! For authenticity, the “Ultra Rare Trax vol.2” version is far better. Ex-

5. Trip On Mars It’s in fact “Moonhead”, from the BBC “Moonlanding Special”, probably recorded in 1969. Very rare. Maybe you should buy the CD only for this track. VG+

6. Cymbaline It lasts more than 18 minutes, but there are in fact TWO different versions of “Cymbaline” mixed together. It begins with the KQED TV performance, 29 Apr 1970. But, at the end of the (short) walking section (at 6:44), it turns into the Cymbaline intro from Amsterdam, 17 Sept 1969. This intro is sometimes entitled “Sleep”, on other RoIOs. Then we have the entire “Cymbaline” from Amsterdam. VG+

7. A Saucerful Of Secrets There is only the “Celestial Voices” part. Stereo. I have not identified the concert yet. Nice version. VG+

8. Improvisation It’s in fact “Fingal’s Cave”, from the Zabriskie Point sessions, Rome, December 1969. Mono. The “Ultra Rare Trax vol.2” version is better, and in stereo. VG+

So, this RoIO is not bad, but it is not essential. Buy it if you don?t have “Moonhead or if you want to hear clear versions from the KQED TV show (and you don’t mind if there are some vinyl scratches…). – MARC-OLIVIER

**Notes from Collectors Music Reviews**

The new release At The Beeb Volume I by the label Culombia (sic) is a compilation of 4 different BBC radio broadcasts of Pink Floyd performances from December 1967 to May 1969. The first, second, & fourth are Top Gear shows, while the third one is a Nite Ride show. They comprise the 1st disc of a double-disc factory-pressed silver original real 2-CD set  Volume II, the 2nd disc of the set, is of the legendary BBC session of September 30th, 1971, which I decided not to buy since I already have 5 different versions of it and can’t imagine the best ones possibly getting any noticeably superior.

Anyway, Volume I was selected because, although the outstanding Celestial Voices that was released by Rover Records several months ago included a major upgrade in sound quality for the first & third BBC shows, a big upgrade in sound quality for the second & fourth BBC shows can now be found on Volume I  in addition to such an upgrade for the first & third BBC shows that were included on Celestial Voices.

Unfortunately my ears aren’t good enough to be able to discern any noticeable difference(s) in quality between the same shows found on both Celestial Voices & Volume I, but all 4 shows on Volume I are a certain, long-awaited major upgrade in quality for the same 4 shows that can be found on the old Great Dane Records release The Complete Top Gear Sessions 1967-1969 (GDR CD 9206). Sadly, however, the old GDR title includes a 5th BBC show, from the autumn of 1967, for which a significant quality upgrade is
apparently not available  at least not yet.

The following is printed in exact word-for-word verbatim near the top of the rear cover of Volume I -These soundboard recordings are taken from the original masters, except for tracks 13 to 16 which were copied from an excellent broadcast recordings.

Introductory &/or concluding comments, mostly by John Peel, can be heard at the ends of each track. Packaged in a regular 1-CD jewel case, but with the rear insert being single-sided only in terms of artwork, with still very nice artwork overall that’s done similarly to that of Floyd’s 2nd officially released album, A Saucerful of Secrets, At The Beeb Volume I is a terrific find that is very highly recommended.

Reveiw here; http://www.collectorsmusicreviews.com/pink-floyd/pink-floyd-at-the-beeb-volume-i-culombia-sic-pfatb6769/

A brilliant little compilation, encompassing some of the overlooked radio work the Floyd did early in their careers,in brilliant quality. Nice and laid back, almost to the point of what is regarded ‘Stereotypical Floyd’, in astounding quality. As stated, the announcements are by the LEGENADRY John Peel, with some interesting little anecdotes from him
included; it’s almost like you’ve tuned into the shows the day they were broadcast – possibly the greatest nostalgia trip.
I would rate this as ‘ESSENTIAL’.
