The Pink Jungle: The 68/69 Pre-FM Recordings [Sigma 28, 2CD]

Disc 1: Live at the Concertgebouw, Amsterdam, The Netherlands; September 17, 1969. Disc 2: Live at the Paradiso, Amsterdam, The Netherlands; August 9, 1969; Paris Cinema, Lower Regent Street, London, England, May 12, 1969; BBC Studios, 201 Piccadilly, London, England; June 25, 1968.

This is what Plomerus said of this 2008 release at

Regarding the “glitches” in “Grantchester Meadows” from the Paris Cinema BBC session that were apparent on Celestial Voices but NOT on At The Beeb Volume 1 (Culombia), they are again smoothed over on The Pink Jungle, but I did notice Sigma’s mastering has brought out a bit more of the percussive sounds from the guitar picks during this portion as well as a couple tiny passages of tape deterioration. Overall The Pink Jungle is “the best of both worlds” compared to these previous releases as far as quality and continuity (no drastic differences in terms of normalization here).

When all is said and done, yes, for long-time Floyd collectors, The Pink Jungle is for the most part a redundancy - however, it does possess the absolute best sound quality possible as far as most of these recordings are concerned, regardless of how subtle the improvements are.

  8. Thanks so much for this set, BigO. I was one of the very few folks on Earth apparently who had NONE of this music before I got your downloads. What an eyeopener! It is so nice to hear how all this little pieces I’ve heard on Ummagumma and More and elsewhere fit together in this large performance. Awesome stuff. -M

  9. I’ve never known BigO to repeat an offering that wasn’t an upgrade. I’ll get it.
