The Pink Floyd - High Time

I just got a copy of this very recently. Thank you "A DoinkerTape" for sharing and converting your vinyl copy with us. This is taken from a limited edition vinyl release. Only a hundred apparently have been circulated. I will let "A DoinkerTape" explain the details of this recording.

"Side one features three tunes from the "Rome Goes Pop! program(me): Astronomie Domine, Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun, and Interstellar Overdrive. The first two tracks are sourced from a VPRO-FM radio rebroadcast on 1988-04-29. The third track is an audio rip from the television broadcast on ARD TV (West Germany) from 1968-05-18. The quality is simply stunning."

"Side two is pre-FM sourced from the program(me) John Peel's Night Ride: Granchester Meadows (Daybreak), Cymbaline (Nightmare), Green Is The Colour (The Beginning/Beset By Creatures Of The Deep), and The Narrow Way. The last track is of mention as it contains vocals. For those of you unfamiliar with the extra titles, these tracks were performed on the road during 1969 as part of a concept piece "The Man and The Journey". The versions presented here are notable for their differences from the normal concert routine."

I couldn't agree more with the quality of this recording. It is amazing. I highly recommend this to all Pink Floyd collectors. Be it hardcore, or light listener, you will not be disappointed.
