Today, 50 years ago, Pink Floyd started recording See Emily Play at Sound Techniques recording studio in London's Chelsea.

Pink Floyd were filmed by Peter Whitehead recording at this converted dairy early in the band's career, capturing them running through Interstellar Overdrive (recently released as part of Record Store Day) and, as Whitehead booked two hours, the band had some spare time, so came up with Nick's Boogie on the spot...

With the principle of "third time lucky", See Emily Play/The Scarecrow was released as a single in the US yet again, this time in July 1968. Despite the imploring nature of this promo cover, success remained elusive for this single in America.

Only a select few fans were able to witness David Gilmour’s ground-breaking return to the Pompeii amphitheatre for a brace of incredible performances in July 2016, but from 29th September every fan will be able to experience them, with the release of the recording of those concerts on CD, Blu-Ray, DVD, LP and download. Released via Sony Music, Live at Pompeii will be available on 2-CD, Blu-ray, 2-DVD, 4-LP, deluxe Blu-ray box and download. For more information, please visit www.DavidGilmour.com. The Blu-ray and DVDs include highlights from the concert performances of both shows, filmed in 4k by director Gavin Elder. The audio, available on CD and LP, was mixed by Andy Jackson and David Gilmour, assisted by Damon Iddins. The formats run to around 148 minutes each, with more than 2 additional hours of material included in the deluxe 4-disc Blu-ray / CD set. The Pompeii concerts marked a return by David to the venue 45 years after Pink Floyd filmed in the legendary Roman Amphitheatre there, his two spectacular shows forming part of the year-long tour in support of the No.1 album Rattle That Lock. David’s performances were the first-ever rock concerts for an audience in the stone Roman amphitheatre, and, for two nights only, the 2,600-strong crowd stood exactly where gladiators would have fought in the first century AD. The stellar performances are complemented by an audio-visual spectacle, featuring lasers, pyrotechnics and a trademark huge circular screen, but paramount is the music; the show includes songs from throughout David's career, solo and with Pink Floyd, including One Of These Days, the only song that was also performed by the band there in 1971, and six songs from Rattle That Lock, as well as two from 2006’s On An Island. The release of Live At Pompeii will be preceded by a worldwide cinema screening of around 107 minutes – see www.DavidGilmourCinemaTickets.com for more details. Live At Pompeii showcases an artist at the top of his artistic game, performing incredible material with his world-class band, in a unique setting, on one very special occasion.

This collaboration lead to David guesting one night in May 2011 on Roger's production of The Wall, at London's O2 Arena. Picture: Polly Samson.

Bill Steele Sr Pink Floyd was so far ahead of their time that no one has, or ever will equal them. David Gilmour's stylized guitar work is like surgery preformed by music... he stands still, plays slowly and re-wires the circuitry in your brain. He is brilliant.

The Floyd's sole live appearance outside North America in 1975 was at the Knebworth Festival in Hertfordshire, England. The show was notable for many things, not least a Spitfire flypast to start the Floyd's set, electrical issues affecting the tuning of the keyboards, and Roy Harper recreating his vocal on Have a Cigar. Here's Richard backstage in the grounds of Knebworth House.

In 1989, Pink Floyd performed the first of what became six nights at the fairly short-lived London Arena (also known as the Dockland's Arena). The first night of the six in this venue raised money for a selection of charities, and the final night started at 4pm, to help with getting all the equipment to the next venue, which was the Goffertpark, Nijmegen, in the Netherlands.

Virgil Jitariuc What a nonsense...
Leslie Stanley Cornwell Spotify is not for Pink Floyd lovers!
Yoo Reeka Tracks? Floyd tracks? No. Floyd albums. Meddle, Dark Side, Wish You Were Here, Wall. In that order. Just my opinion...

Benefitting the Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy Centre, this concert in 1990 wasn't just a fund-raiser for a worthy cause, but your £30 got you some eleven hours of music from the likes of Eric Clapton, Dire Straits, Robert Plant with Jimmy Page, Genesis, Elton John, Paul McCartney, and others, with Pink Floyd headlining. The circular screen was removed due to safety reasons thanks to the high winds and rain earlier in the day, so Mr Screen just showed off his lighting tricks. Before the band's set, a short (but fascinating) video montage was played, to the delight of the Floyd fans in the sizeable audience, and to some confusion by the rest!

Today in 1968, A Saucerful of Secrets was released. It was the first Pink Floyd album to feature a cover by the team at Hipgnosis, and included elements from a Marvel comic book published the previous year - Strange Tales issue 158. Musically, it marked the transition from the Syd Barrett line-up, and three tracks include Syd performing. Producer Norman Smith did the drumming and some backing vocals on Remember A Day.

Attendees of the Bath Festival today in 1970 were served up a feast of some Amazing Pudding - at that time, the Floyd still didn't have a title for Atom Heart Mother. With a crowd of some 150,000, the lengthy set-up of the stage and lighting for the band's set made some restless, and tired, but once the band hit the stage, the performance thrilled the audience, not least with the flares in the sky as part of the finale...
