One of a number of eye-catching posters for early Pink Floyd concerts - this one for a pair of UFO shows in January. Not quite sure how the advertised karate would have fitted in to the concert though...

Today is the 50th anniversary of the first of the handful of five-piece Pink Floyd concerts after David Gilmour had joined, and before the departure of Syd Barrett from the band. This is a poster for one of the shows all five members performed, a few days later...

In 2010, the UK's Royal Mail released a set of ten postage stamps celebrating iconic bands and albums. Included in these ten was Pink Floyd, with The Division Bell proving an eye-catching image to use in the limited dimensions of a stamp!

"I really love you and I mean you the star above you, crystal blue Well, oh baby, my hair's on end about you..." The opening lyrics from Syd Barrett's first solo album, The Madcap Laughs, released today in 1970. Here's an alternative picture from the cover photo session:

Robert Owen echoes of the earlier picture with his cat. he looks fine to me, i think he just didnt like being in a touring band.
Alex Sierra Syd was on a different plant I get a laugh when ppl say David Gilmour was the best thing so fucking funny
Brian Canepa It's a shame Sid never had a "proper" release. Most everything was demo quality. What could have been!
Darren Ey Heart and soul, a great album. I believe he wrote the music to Golden Hair (not the lyrics, as they are from a James Joyce poem) when he was SIXTEEN.
John Nymo Nyman You've got to admit Interstellar Overdrive and Astronomy Domine are great tracks....and Dave had nothing to do with those 😉

What are your hopes for the year on the Floyd front?

Cire Spas That people stop obssessing over a band that has not recorded anything worth listening to in over 35 years. They're great, but it's the same songs over and over and over and over and over and over and over again. There is plenty of new, good music being ...
Mike Riesco A reunion tour of the remaining 3, or course -- minus the baggage, of course -- just music. Setlist? The good stuff -- and we all know what that would include.
David Austin I'm still waiting for a video of Roger's 2007 world tour. Still one of the best concerts I've ever been to, Floydian or otherwise.He's due to play here in Auckland in 3 weeks so I'm counting down to that :)
Régis Giudicelli Something like a "The Middle Years 1973-1978" box-set with lots of outtakes and concerts (and please including a Blu-Ray of "The Wall Live", we know there are sources !!!!)
Steve Olsavsky That they release the never-before discovered 20 hours of jam tapes recorded during Dark Side of the Moon.

A very happy New Year to you all! Further to yesterday's post concerning Pink Floyd's appearance during the Giant Freak-Out All Night Rave at London's Roundhouse, the venue's website shares a review from the time of the show: https://50.roundhouse.org.uk/content-items/psychedelicamania-nye-1966-featuring-move-pink-floyd

Steven Terrio I was there and it was an incredible show. They gave it everything to keep on playing in that storm. Best concert I've ever been to even after seeing them again a few weeks later in New Orleans.

For many, the Christmas period is a time to relax at home, with friends, and family. It could be the perfect time to properly explore everything that David Gilmour's Live at Pompeii - the recording of last year's pair of truly memorable concerts in the historic Italian amphitheatre - has to offer, particularly in the Deluxe edition. Full details can be found at www.DavidGilmour.com.

45 years after Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour filmed ‘Live At Pompeii’ in the legendary Roman Amphitheatre there, he returned for two spectacular shows in July 2016, part of the year-long tour in support of his No.1 album ‘Rattle That Lock’. The performances were the first-ever rock concerts f...
