Comments: Recorded at The Town Hall in Leeds. This one is another amazing find. It’s one of the earliest Dark Side shows – the sixth to be exact. This tape captures the entire show, including a lengthy ‘Speak To Me’ punctuated by members of the crowd calling to each other. You can hear cash register sound effects and a cow mooing as well. Or was that a sheep?

There is a fair amount of hiss, which is not unusual considering the age of this tape. Over 32 years! The last two tracks of the Dark Side should be called “warped” versions, since there is a ton of warble. Even Mo Becks would be challenged to work this one out. It finally lets up a minute or so into One Of These Days.

The original taper copied his source and sent it to a friend, who forwarded it on by his friend to our good friend JCE, who took sterling care of it over the years. He was kind enough to share it with us all. More precisely, the lineage is; Cassette(1 or 2)>Edirol UA-3FX>HDD>CEPro>WAV>SHN.

Show Notes:
The crowd is very quiet, which is not surprising, since we’d be too, if we had the chance to hear one of the first Dark Side performances.

‘Money’ is a fun listen, especially since the boys don’t get the harmony quite right during the opening. There is a small break in the recording during ‘Brain Damage’. It’s obvious from the sound that the taper was moving around for some reason — maybe to see the effects? We also suspect he was starting to have battery problems.
This is unfortunate because a good bit of ‘Eclipse’ suffers from speed issues that would have taken another 32 years to fix! This lingers a little bit into ‘One Of These Days’ although it is not as bad; it slowly resolves itself and is gone by the end of the track.

It’s great that the taper captured the break after ‘Dark Side’ even though it is sometimes muffled, probably from hiding the mic. You can hear wind effects, a dog howling, and the boys tweaking their instruments in between. This is rare for an early 1972 recording.

During ‘Echoes’, there is a small break, with no loss of music. The tape includes the entire band break with audience applause after ‘Echoes’. Seamless.

Credits: Jim Canale ( and Free Range Pigs would like to thank the following people for their contributions to this effort:

JCE for donating this rarest of jewels for us to enjoy.
The Pentagon Pig for providing Project Coordination and Quality Assurance.
The Hirsute Swine for providing Tree Admin Services, and a kick in the pants where needed.
Busy Day Productions for creating the Ambient Artwork.

Without these guys, none of this would have been possible.

Comments: From a very clean clone of the master cassettes. These tapes are the source for every Bradford release that you have heard. This is a direct transfer from the first generation tapes which date from 1971.

The recording includes all tune-ups and band chatter between tracks. The boys are in a playful mood, as you can tell by their interaction with the audience, which is very quiet during the songs. There is no appreciable hiss. The taper also used 60 minute cassettes, 30 minutes to a side, which is obvious by the breaks.

  • ‘Careful With That Axe, Eugene’: The recording begins with the first few notes of the song. I
    especially like Roger’s scream since it is–by my count–a full 19 seconds long!
  • ‘Fat Old Sun’: A great jam session. Vocals are not perfectly clear, but you can hear every word. There are some interesting guitar licks during the tune-ups.
  • ‘Set The Controls’: The first tape flip occurs during the intro. After the song, Roger introduces ‘Atom Heart Mother’ then says the band is going to take a break, followed by what sounds like
    “then we’re going to have a drink.”
  • ‘Atom Heart Mother’: During the intro, there are several pops which sound as if they might have
    been due to a loose microphone lead.
  • ‘Echoes’: The opening pings to this “new piece” just pierces your skull.
  • ‘Cymbaline’: The “footsteps” sequence goes on for quite a while. The third and final tape flip
    occurs during this sequence.
  • ‘One Of These Days’: David introduces this new song using its full title. This was the second
    performance of this song, the first was at the BBC 0n 30 September.
  • ‘A Saucerful Of Secrets’: The final break in the tape occurs prior to ‘Celestial Voices’.

Sounds like mixing desk as no close up talking but could be audience.

I seem to remember a partial BBC Broadcast of this with only one Morrison track,
could be wrong.
