Two days before the end of a long Animals Tour, the tension was rising between Roger Waters and the audience. At this show on the Fourth of July in Madison Square Garden, you cannot mistake Waters contempt for the followers who only wanted to hear Dark Side Of The Moon…

Sheep Independence Day [no label, 2CD]

Live at Madison Square Garden, New York City, New York, July 4, 1977. A stereo audience recording that is quite good.

You have to be trusted by the people that you lie to,
So that when they turn their backs on you,
You’ll get the chance to put the knife in.

ROGER WATERS: “It just became more and more oppressive. Those places weren’t built for music, they were built for sporting events, and it’s not unnatural to experience a ritualisation of war, because that’s all sport is. What was going through my mind - my whole body - was an enormous sense of frustration, a feeling of what are we all doing here, what’s the point? And the answer that kept clanging back monotonously was: cash and ego. That’s all it’s about.”

You gotta keep one eye looking over your shoulder.
You know it’s going to get harder, and harder, and harder as you
get older.
And in the end you’ll pack up and fly down south,
Hide your head in the sand,
Just another sad old man,
All alone and dying of cancer.

NICK MASON: “Well, Roger is not exactly a man known for peace and love - but we were sympathetic, even if we didn’t feel as passionately as he did - those stadium shows are very strange. When we’re playing, we’re watching the audience, the same way the audience is watching us, and all you can really see is those front rows and - I’m not saying they’re all nutters, but what you tend to get, particularly if it’s what’s euphemistically called “festival-seating” - ie no seats - is the people who are mad enough to be able to push their way to the front, the air-guitar players, the people who know all the words and rather sad ones who have been waiting all day and collapse just as the band comes on-stage.”

And when you loose control, you’ll reap the harvest you have sown.
And as the fear grows, the bad blood slows and turns to stone.
And it’s too late to lose the weight you used to need to throw around.

DAVID GILMOUR: “Roger never liked touring anyway very much, he was always rather tense and irritable. He was disgusted with the business in many ways, as we all were. The big change came with the huge success of “Dark Side Of The Moon” - the audiences liked to “interact,” shout a lot. Previous to then, even though we played large places, 10,000-seaters, you could hear a pin drop at appropriate moments. So it had been a shock - but four years on I was getting used to the idea that that’s the way it had to be.”

This was the circus surrounding former cult band Pink Floyd who had been ushered into the “big time” with Dark Side Of The Moon and the warm guitar and organ drenched Wish You Were Here. Success meant new fans unfamiliar with Pink Floyd’s earlier experimental works. For Animals, Roger Waters commandeered the band, writing all the lyrics to explore George Orwell’s Animal Farm about the deep flaws of capitalism. What better place to expound his views than Madison Square Garden, in the vicinity of Wall Street.

Animals is not an album for the casual fan. It is a wordy, lyrically strong album placing text above texture and relegating guitars, organ and drums to the basement. As the concert opens with Sheep, the fans are already restless for the “tunes”. By Dogs, the third long number, you have to be a devotee to find the music entertaining. It isn’t until Pigs [Three Different Ones] when Gilmour gets his chance to shine that the audience connects back with the band. Gilmour is a magnet with some amazing solos.

Animals is a concept album, based on the flaws of capitalism. Ranks in society are represented as different types of animals (Dogs as the businessmen, sheep as the powerless pawns, and pigs as the ruthless leaders).

This show is marked by the firing of crackers from the presumably bored audience. The Animals part of the show is on disc one and the sound is not as smooth, possibly because the taper had to jostle with a restless audience. By disc two, things have settled as the band play the entire Wish You Were Here album and two of the more popular tracks off Dark Side, Money and Us And Them.

Pink Floyd have seldomed played Animals on tour after 1977. Both Sheep and Dogs were written during the recording for Wish You Were Here. Then, both carried different titles. Raving And Drooling finally became Sheep while You Gotta Be Crazy settled for Dogs. Both songs were left off Wish You Were Here.

“A very nice recording. The sound quality is excellent and it’s a stereo recording. I’d give it an Ex- since there are some clap happy folks near the taper, but not to the point of distraction. The taper also bumps the mics a few times, ” notes mTownshend who shared this show at Hunger City.

If you need convincing on the sound quality and performance, try Disc 2 Track 6 for a “far out” version of Money.

The title for this ROIO seems to be a reference to the audience. The fourth of July is Independence Day in America.

  3. This is just a ripoff of the “Analog Master Recording” ROIO. Cover so poorly done that it’s nearly unreadable, which is just as well since it’s misspelled. Also, Naughty Hippo seems to know little at all about the Floyd. They did not “seldom” play Animals after ‘77 - they NEVER played it. Only Roger has done so on his solo tours. But to say that “you have to be a devotee” to find Dogs entertaining is unforgivable, or that the guitar, organ and drums are “relegated to the basement” on Animals is a joke. That album, and Dogs in particular, has some of Gilmour’s finest guitar work ever, including the doubled lead played live with Snowy White on second guitar - brilliant! Thanks anyway, but there are far better places to find Pink Floyd ROIOs than this joke of a “political commentary” site. Who cares about your opinion anyway?

    By Ippy on Aug 8, 2008

  4. Whatever happened to not looking a gift horse in the mouth. Music is free, and so are the opinions. Take them both for what they are worth, IPPY

    By FREAKAZOID on Aug 9, 2008

  5. @Ippy
    Stay on the better findings for yourself.
    ROIO is great work!

    Cheers from ODW,


    By Poop on Aug 9, 2008

  6. I sure wouldn’t be comfortable denying whether PF ever played songs from Animals after ‘77, nor do I care enough to dig out my old Pink Floyd almanac chronicling their shows, nor do I care. I’ll just enjoy this show. Thanks again!

  7. Oh, pipe down, you two. Fighting like pigs and dogs, you are…

    By Heli0tr0pe on Aug 9, 2008

  8. Dear Ippy - Just say no to caffeine.
    Are you SERIOUSLY saying that a ROIO
    is RIPPING OFF another ROIO?

    And, as the point has already been made -
    you paid how much for this?
    The word gratitude mean anything to you?

    I SAW the tour in Cleveland, Ohio - rode down with friends from Buffalo, New York.
    It was hot, people were acting like idiots, the band seemed uncomfortable on a festival stage in a football stadium, and all I heard on the way out, after what I thought was an amazing 2 hours+ of Pink Floyd making the best of the situation, was idiots like you complaining that they didn’t play more
    “Dark Side, Meddle, Or ‘old stuff’”

    Maybe someday you will learn to enjoy what you are given, and remember that rock music is not a competition.

    “If ya don’t like what’s on the TV - change the channel - yellin’ at it just makes you look stupid”

    By Steve Headrick on Aug 9, 2008

  9. I couldn’t help but to chime in.

    Thanks for the ROIO. Not the best from this show but OK. It has gaps in pigs and money like most of the shows from July 4. If you want better from this date, you can’t go wrong with Holiday Hogs. For a complete show with with gaps filled using a lower sq source try Welcome to NYC vol.2.

    Btw, I was at this show. Fabulous plaing and who can forget the inflatable family floating during Dogs and of course the flying pig. Very loud and noisy from the audience side, though. You can hear an M80 (not a firework but a more like a bomb) exploding during part 2. It cleared several rows behind where I was sitting on the floor.

    I also want to point to the non-US audience, that Madison Square Garden is an arena not a stadium. The acoustics at MSG are pretty good and it hosts many concerts to this day. It only holds about 20,000 people. Pink Floyd played 3 nights at MSG. July 4 was the last US date and the second to last show of the tour, two days before the infamous Montreal concert when Roger spat on the fan, and which prompted him to contemplate the idea for The Wall.

  10. Ippy forgot the have his diapers changed, now he can’t stand his own smell … and we should ge a whiff of it as well.

    By Yppi on Aug 9, 2008

  11. Thanks! Keep ‘em coming. I haven’t been disappointed with any shows I have downloaded from here.

    By Tom on Aug 9, 2008

  12. Well to change the subject a bit, i am curios to know from others out there how you think this show compares, fidelity wise and performance wise to other dates from 77? I have a few different dates and so far the best fidelity wise that i’ve gotten is 5-1-77 Tarrent county, Fort worth , Texas. I think the ROIO title is Iron pigs on fire. I am also curios to know if maybe Admin. could post a couple of different dates from this tour for comparison sake, similar to the way the wall dates were posted. As always, thanks to the BigO for posting all the various kinds of music in one place for us music fans to easily enjoy. Keep up the great work that you do. Peace, Steve

  13. I agree with Ippy. The BIG O site is gay. The political view is typical anti-American, anti-capitalist bullshit. The worst thing about it though, beyond its gayness, is that it is boring. These losers don’t seem to realize who butters their toast. I say fuck them.

    By PITT on Aug 10, 2008

  14. @ PITT: what do you mean with “BigO is gay”? Even if they or their site would be gay – who cares? (except gay people who might like it or homophobic assholes?) (and I’d also like to know how many people – after reading this – think that I’m gay just because I think that people who use “gay” as a “hate word” are simply stupid assholes)

    Anyway: If the political view of BigO is anti-american and anti-capitalist – who cares?
    If you look at all the pro-american media everywhere in the world, then some anti-u.s.-views are quite refreshing. Not everyone has to believe what the hypocrite war-criminal bush says. And I know some americans who think the same.
    If this homophobic bullshit PITT writes is pro-american than I prefer their views. There are situations when I’m really proud that I come from “old europe” (even if this is not my fault or merit).

    I don´t agree with everything the guys of BigO write (maybe with less than 50%, I especially don’t like a lot of this pre-occupied stuff they write about catholics [I´m not catholic at all, I’m very “anti-church” and I hate fundamentalists of every religion]).
    But reading a different opinion can make you see some things from a different point of view – which can be very interesting.

    But if you, PITT, are too stupid to live with some opinions that are not yours, than simply shut up.

    By Walter on Aug 11, 2008

  15. @ Ippy: I also don’t believe or like everything Hippo writes about “Animals”. I liked the album from the first day I bought it and I think “Animals” is “the great underrated Pink Floyd album”.
    If I understand you correctly, you don’t like that Hippo says “you have to be a devotee” to find Dogs entertaining” – well, I don’t think Pink Floyd wanted “Animals” to be an entertaining album. And for the non-devotees or beginners “Animals” is certainly not the Floyd-album to start with.

    By Walter on Aug 11, 2008

  16. “This show is marked by the firing of crackers from the presumably bored audience.”
    What a load of shit. I was at this show…it was 4th of July..hence the fireworks.
    As far as being bored you are way off base. We all knew we were coming to hear Animals being played. To get tickets to this show you had to go to central park in NYC weeks before the concert to get vouchers that were dropped from a floating pig. If you were able to get a voucher you were limited to 4 tickets.
    “As the concert opens with Sheep, the fans are already restless for the “tunes”. By Dogs, the third long number, you have to be a devotee to find the music entertaining.” The fans were not restless we were very very stoned and enjoying every minute of the show except for the fireworks that some stupid fans kept throwing towards the floor seats ( I was on the floor and a few people get injured) It was the best concert I have ever been to and your article is total bullshit.

  17. Hi Everyone
    I wonder if I might offer a piece of advice?People who leave comments as PITT has done, in such an aggressive way, tend to be those who don’t have much of a life. They don’t like themselves or their lives. They have no self-respect, and their frustration and anger are turned on everyone else, it gets them attention. So, if you see any such comments on the site again, from anyone, then don’t respond. Discuss the music, discuss the politics if you like, but use reason and ignore the extremists who ultimately are deeply sad people, incapable of expressing themselves in a civilised manner. They are like animals growling - quite ironic for this particular thread!
    Best Wishes and Peace

  18. I tell you what, everyone who is unhappy with this recording, I’ll give you every penny you paid for it.

    Done. Feel better now?

    By Rob Johnson on Aug 12, 2008

  19. First off: Walter- why don’t you shut your mouth? How dare you criticize the U.S. I can’t wait till Europe turns in to Eurostan. That will learn you good you ignorant piece of Euro-trash. Needless to say but I’ll say it anyway- you losers would be speaking either Russian or German if it wasn’t for the U.S. coming over there to save your dumb, pathetic, whining asses over and over and over again. You people are so pathetic you can’t even support yourselves anymore because of your welfare state mentality so you have to import Muslim immigrants to do all your work for you while all the Euro populations are getting older and older and smaller and smaller.The ONLY Western country that is maintaining replacement levels for their population is the U.S. So why don’t you fuck off Walter? Why don’t you fuck right off? Homophobic isn’t even a word you ignorant piece of Euro-shit. The Muslims will exterminate every homosexual in Europe by 2050. You fucking Euro-losers don’t understand philosophy or politics and socialism is killing Europe faster than the plague. So fuck you.
    This is a message for Tony- No Tony, you can’t offer a piece of advice. Why don’t you stick your advice up your ass? No one asked you for your advice so why don’t you fuck off? Do you think that you’re some kind of philosopher or something? Some kind of analyst? You are the sober intellectual who can break the problem down in to its basic parts and posit the calm and ordered solution? Why don’t you fuck right the hell off you fucking piece of dogshit. I’ll express myself however the fuck I want to and if I’m addressing ignorant left-wing Eurofags who are so pathetic that their culture demands that they sit down to take a piss in a public washroom then I will address those losers in the manner I see fit so why don’t you go have sex with your dog again you Marxist-Fagasist.

  23. Hi PITT
    It’s a pity there wasn’t anyone to save the REAL Native Americans from people like you.
    You’re obviously a closet gay.
    Why don’t you join the army? The place where big hairy men in shiny boots can sleep in the same hut together. Mmmmmmmmmm!
    Now pucker up and give me a big wet kiss.

    Shut up and play yer boots!


    By mike-floyd on Aug 12, 2008

  25. I just wanted to point out that not all Americans are as ignorant as PITT. After PITT’s diatribes, I wouldn’t blame you for being skeptical, but we’re not all idiots.

    Some of us are very reasonable, peace-loving people. Really, I promise.

    Thanks for the show Big O, it sounds great!

    By Rob Johnson on Aug 13, 2008

  26. It’s true. Not all Americans spit on everything for which our founding fathers fought and argued for so long to create by spewing hateful oblivious intolerance like Pitt. I thank The Lord that Jefferson, Washington, Franklin, Adams, and the rest disagreed and argued bitterly (yet intelligently, unlike some here) on the vast majority of topics and yet, GOT ALONG and LISTENED to each others’ views and came up with the very Constitution that allows for disagreement and amendments and give rights even to those like Pitt, whose every word reeks of contempt for the massive INTELLIGENT discussion of widely differing views from which it was born. I’m exteremely thankful as well that they didn’t just rant and rave, but yet listened and discussed

    God bless America, and there is still hope for those so full of blind hate they have lost track of what America represents.

    As unamerican as I may be called, I will defend the Constitution and refuse to defile the memories of our founding fathers by spewing rants of intolerance by an illiterate who obviously doesn’t own a dictionary (well, maybe an ancient one), or know how to google something. Perhaps he could explain to the idiots at Princeton University how the Oxford English Dictionary or the American Heritage Dictionary contain a word that according to him isn’t a word. Oops. But it’s in theirs, too: . Ashame the public school system here is so flawed, or else all Americans might learn to use a dictionary.

    That said, I didn’t have this show before, but always loved “Animals,” am grateful to have friends of all backgrounds and beliefs, lest I become so sheltered, bitter and unaware that I can’t learn anything new or accept that I am not God and don’t know everything.

    I like 1977-05-09 Oakland the best.

    I would like to see BigO post some of the 1977 European Tour, anything from the first North American Tour in ‘77, and maybe the Milwaukee WI, Louisville KY, and Chicago IL shows from the 2nd North American Tour.

    By Musturd J. Flats esq. on Aug 13, 2008

  29. Oh dear PITT, your zodiac sign must be “twins”, because I can´t believe that one person alone can be so stupid.

    “How dare you criticize the U.S.” – there is nothing to dare, you fool, for every thinking man (and woman) it is a duty.

    And, hey: I speak german! And a little bit of french! And even russian (I don´t speak it) is a nice language.

    @ Rob Johnson: I definitely KNOW that not all of the americans are hate-filled airheads like pitt (we have this kind of people here too. Sometimes we call them nazis).
    In fact, all of the americans I know personally are intelligent, friendly and very sympathetic people who are aware of what´s happening in the world – and who care. But I fear, they are a minority (they are all musicians - Walkabouts, Calexico,…) and I don´t know too many americans ;-)
    But in a lot of other discussions I´m really a defender of the USA. I mean – how can you hate a country/nation/people that gave us rock’n'roll? And, yes, democracy (even if the american version seems to be too commercialized and big-business-controlled). But we have a proverb in german: “The way you shout into the wood is the way the wood shouts at you” (sorry, my translation is not very elegant).

    Oh, by the way (haven’t we been talking about Pink Floyd?): I managed to listen to the recording in the meantime. There are some great versions of the songs. I´m not a big Floyd-expert, but I think this was the last tour with real improvisations and changes to the songs. The guitar on “Sheep” is awesome, maybe the wildest Gilmour ever played. And even the old fucked-up “Money” (which I can´t hear anymore) sounds fresh and good and different.

    By Walter on Aug 14, 2008

  30. The only bad thing on this recording are the people who are shouting and talking near the microphone. Didn’t the taper have any security people around him? ;-)

    By Walter on Aug 14, 2008

  31. I think a special mention must go to Snowy White, the second guitarist for the Animals concerts.
    His playing (the improvisations which aren’t on the original record)on Pigs On the Wing (Part Two, I think) and on the later stages of Shine On is top-notch. His part in this tour is often overlooked, and on some ROIO sites, Mr Gilmour is credited with these parts. I agree with Walter’s description of David Gilmour’s playing as well - I wonder if Mr White raised the stakes a little which resulted in some inspired playing all round?
    I like Walter’s joke about the security people - it reminded me of when I saw Floyd in the UK at Stafford for this tour -I had my camera confiscated on the way in. On the way out, several pairs of arms appeared out of the crowd, and removed the “Animals” sign from the entrance. The security boys couldn’t get near enough and they walked away with their trophy, held aloft in triumph! I laughed at the time because it reminded me of the ants at the picnic in Tom & Jerry.

    By Tony on Aug 14, 2008

  32. Wow…… It’s hard to believe that al you cats are soo hung up on the politics, morality or sexuality of this VERY generous page owner. The Big O does nothing but give both content and idealism. If we were all so worldly there wouldn’t be a discussion. The logical response would be thanks. Do all you folks need your music SPOON FED? Music is everywhere but your minds aren’t able to grasp that small fact. Shut up and search.
    Over and Out. ‘Ciao.

    By platterpile on Aug 22, 2008

  33. I like what John wrote: “PITT - It’s a pity…”
    It’s a pity PITT that you are full of hate. I hate hate and love love. I love this show…

    And FloydFan, you say the article is total bullshit - how can it be total BS when 1/2 of the description is quotes from the band that apparently you love… “The fans were not restless,” you say, “we were very very stoned and enjoying every minute of the show except for the fireworks that some stupid fans kept throwing towards the floor seats (I was on the floor and a few people get injured).” Well, isn’t that special. There are fireworks going off throughout recording of the whole show. It’s very distracting. I don’t give a freak that it’s the 4th of July or not. Save that shit for later. We don’t pay to hear and see the audience, we come for the band. Believe me there were plenty enough fireworks going off onstage and above the arena, what with flying pigs, and a giant disco-ball casting the maddest light show I ever saw - I was there a week earlier at the Boston Garden. Then there is the clown on the recording who keeps yelling for “Dark Side o’ tha Moon!”

    A lot of what The Savage Hippo writes is right on. He never said it is bad show. It’s not. It’s hot. I haven’t heard the other boots touted by fans here, but this is a keeper. Thanks, Big O & Savage Hippo!

    By thewaymouth on Aug 30, 2008

  34. thanks for all the downlaods - and its good to see that there are people in the world with a brain who see all the criminality in the US for what is - criminality. Those that are mad about the political comments are asleep and haven’t realized whats going on yet.

    By the dave on Dec 19, 2008

  35. PITT and IPPY should do themselves a favor and download a Toby Keith performance and STFU.Anyway,not going to waste any more breath on those losers.How can I download this show? I’m not computer savvy and RAR and FLAC files are absolutely useless for me as I don’t know how to format them to accomodate my iPod.For some reason,only compressed zip files or mp3’s are compatable.I miss out on alot of awesome stuff I find that I can’t use.So if anyone can help me out,it would be greatly appreciated. P.S. if anyone can front me a link to the Hamburg Feb.25 1971 and the Offenbach recording from Feb.26 1971,I’d forever be in your debt. Take it easy,everyone.

    By Alan on Jun 8, 2009

  36. Just a quick bit of info on the shows recorded from 73-77.The 77 Miami show is an audience discussion more than a concert.Stay away from it.The Montreal show was a debacle but is an interesting piece of Floydian history as you hear Waters getting more and more irritated with the crowd up to where he spits in the face of that fan(wonder who he is…he’s a celebrity..gave Roger the idea of building a wall between the band and the audience)I searched high and low for Yeeshkul because it was supposed to be the best recording of the 73 tour.What a disappointment.I found the sound bad and people burping into the recorder and that IDIOT always yelling out ‘Yeeshkul!’I would’ve punched him out.The Ivor Wynne concert I found had a better sound than the Boston Gardens show.But once again,(Canadian audiences appear to be annoying..and I can say that seeing that I am Canadian),people screaming,”SIT DOWN!!!”right up to the very end of Echoes which was the encore and THE END OF THE SHOW! STFU!!! Again,I would’ve pounded these people.So annoying crowd effects are to be expected in all those roios.

    By Alan on Jun 8, 2009

  37. @PITT..WW2 you were the last country to get involved,if it wasn’t for the USSR that war wouldn’t have ended when it did.Socialism is killing Europe?LOL!!You’re probably one of those fuckin’ door-knobs who think Obama is a Marxist.You wouldn’t know a Marxist if he came and smacked you upside the head.’Socialist’Denmark has an unemployment rate of 2%.How’s your economy,Buckwheat?It’s a universal fact that the world follows US make sure they do the exact OPPOSITE.So,make your way through the several chins that merge to the belly of your junkie hero Rush Limbaugh,pull out his needle dick and blow him in the name of ‘freedom’

    By Alan on Jun 8, 2009

  38. Just one more thing,PITT.You’re the only country in the Western Hemisphere without universal health care.I’m sorry,that concept is some Marxist plot,right? And if you wonder why people hate the U.S.,take a long look in the mirror.

    By Alan on Jun 8, 2009

  39. Pitt - Who do you think you are, damm yankee? Go see if in the rest of the world there are planes destroing buldings….Damm! You put the Iraq on fire then say the non american countries are a shit, come on! I’m sorry, US people, but there are some americans who doesn’t know what they say….

    By André on Feb 20, 2010

  40. Oh, by the way, do you wanna know other person who criticzise USA???? George Roger Waters.

    By André on Feb 20, 2010

  41. Interesting discussion here. The important part is Thank You Big O Amigos. In Thompson your work as musical archivists and journalists is appreciated. It will be part of tonight’s sound track after I return to the Sturgeon Fairgrounds and photograph a beef cattle show, then head out to my cattle farm. All very American mind you.

    Keep up the good work Big O. Your days beats some of these posters’ weeks.

  42. How did all you whiners find your unthanking way here….if you don’t like all the great music this site provides, simply GO AWAY!! Nobody needs these negative a**holes.
    It’s pathetic when the offer of free music degenerates into a stupid political rant because some losers happened to find their way here!

  43. NYC July 2, 1977 is a great performance by Floyd, I think it’s my favorite out of the New York shows on that tour.

  44. Hey PITT have your brain examined because you’re FUCKED. Now go to bed peacefully and never wake up again.

  45. What I don’t understand is why these far-right fascists like PITT listen to Pink Floyd to begin with?! You know they are left leaning progressives and that is so evident in their lyrics. And besides the music…THAT is why I love ‘em!

    The problem with this PITT fellow is that he lacks critical thinking skills and judges everything as “Anti-American” if it doesn’t conform to his inane, highly ignorant ideology. He also lacks empathy and compassion for others which is how he can be so intolerant. THAT is a typical far-right Conservative, folks.

  47. shanks - send an email to [email protected] and ask him to repost this item so u could dl it. make sure u tell him which item it is. tell him pink floyd animals msg ny 7-4-77. that will help. they did 3 nites btw.. 2nd nite was best of the 3 performance wise. from the recordings i have heard.. first nite and 3rd are my faves. but that 2nd nite they did stuff i didnt hear on the other 2 nites. as for other shows on that tour.. and i went to over 20 shows on that tour.. there were better recordings than the garden nites. theres only 2 sbds and one is a half show sbd. the other half wasnt recorded. better performances were in europe for the 77 tour. if i had to pick.
