Pink Floyd Live at the Philipshalle, Duesseldorf, West Germany 1971-06-04


Pink Floyd Live at the Philipshalle, Duesseldorf, West Germany 1971-06-04 from new reel-to-reel AUD source with artwork- Another Doinker/TheTooleman/GTheCock conspiracy of true Pink Floyd weirdness! (mp3 sample provided)

This is the longest, most complete known version of this show to date, and is NOT another SHN archive drudged up from an out-of-print CD! It features a prehistoric version of "Echoes" and is a unique and an amazingly good performance overall.

"Mrs. Doinker" and I visited Prague in November. On the way back, we stopped to stay with our German friends Mr. & Mrs. (Herr und Frau) Peter D. This is the person responsible for the source vinyl for the "Pictures Of Pink Floyd" restoration project, and it's him I have to thank for this most unexpected surprise. While thumbing through his amazing record collection, I ran across a BASF reel tape labeled PINK FLOYD DUESSELDORF. "What's this?" I asked. "Oh, that" he said with an unexpected air. "I had totally forgotten about that... Do you still have a reel
machine?" "Yes", I said. "Take it", he said.

When home again, I compared the setlist against the two known Pink Floyd dates, and found it to be the rarer of the two. Something was wrong with the sound, so Dime member The TooleMan has carefully restored the sound quality. As an added bonus to you all, Dime member G The Cock (one of the best for artwork!) has made you a new cover to keep the goods!
