DISK TWO  43:36 The Top Gear Sessions

BBC Playhouse Theatre, Northumberland Avenue, London, September 25, 1967  for BBC Radio One (broadcast on October 1, 1967)

(Note:  This Pink Floyd Freak doubts whether “Apples And Oranges” was really recorded for the BBC — the single was recorded October 31-November 1 after “Vegetable Man” & “Scream Thy Last Scream” were ‘rejected.’  All CD sources that claim this song are fake: their copy is the single version.  Indeed, “Esoteric Dreams” has the original broadcast announcements that says “their new studio single will be out in a few more weeks, but here it is now…” The only LP set (that I have) that  includes these early BBC recordings is In Memoriam   1967-1981  R•I•P, and it hints that it’s there, but it’s not.  The book Pink Floyd: In The Flesh  The Complete Performance History by Glenn Povey and Ian Russell says this performance included “Apples And Oranges,” but it was ‘left out’ of the first broadcast on Oct 1, and was included in the second one on Oct 5.  Was the rebroadcast really in December, or in ’68 (or later?) with the single in the middle?  Did Povey & Russell glean their info from a tape or LP, or a printed radio guide, or the BBC archives, or a combination?  (tapes commonly get under-labeled and mis-labeled when copied as ink fades over time)  As the  BBC reportedly destroyed the masters in the 1970’s, and this was 40 years ago now (WOW!!!  And their music is still progressive in today’s standards!), we here at the other end of the spectrum may never know for sure… …unless one of the old-timers wants to finally come off it!!! ;-)

BBC Maida Vale Studios, Maida Vale, London, December 2, 1968  for BBC Radio One (broadcast on Dec 15, 1968)

4:13 1. Point Me At The Sky   (no noise reduction - very clean.  TCTGS has tape wobble, others are inferior fidelity from noise reduction)
4:04 2. Baby Blue Shuffle in D major   (fades early as do all CD sources) (BBCA79 is pitched fast; TCTGS has hi-frequency distortion & noise, but better bass sub-harmonics; PS has less fidelity) (LP sources with NM vinyl may be better)
BBCA79 3:27 3. The Embryo   (very clean & complete) (TCTGS has lead space & more noise; BBCB & BBCS cut in late; Em is pitched fast)
9:12 4. Interstellar Overdrive   (noise reduction used - clean but lacks full sparkle) (TCTGS & BBCA79 more noise reduction, less fidelity: especially bass) (LP sources with superclean vinyl may be better)
