High Time [no label, 1CD]

Live in Rome, Italy, May 6, 1968; London, May 12, 1969. Vinyl rip.

This was just uploaded on the Dime site so a big thank you to Doinker for sharing the lossless tracks.

This is what Doinker said:

Continuing my never-to-be-quenched thirst for vinyl, here’s a great offering from the European anti-CD label Sodium Haze Records. Pressed in perhaps batches of 50-100 pieces (correct me if I’m wrong there), your chances of snagging one are very limited… you’d better not blink or it will go away.

Side One features three tunes from the “Rome Goes Pop! program(me): Astronomie Domine, Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun, and Interstellar Overdrive. The first two tracks are sourced from a VPRO-FM radio rebroadcast on 1988-04-29. The third track is an audio rip from the television broadcast on ARD TV (West Germany) from 1968-05-18. The quality is simply stunning.

Side Two is pre-FM sourced from the program(me) John Peel’s Night Ride: Granchester Meadows (Daybreak), Cymbaline (Nightmare), Green Is The Colour (The Beginning/Beset By Creatures Of The Deep), and The Narrow Way [with vocals]. For those of you unfamiliar with the extra titles, these tracks were performed on the road during 1969 as part of a concept piece “The Man and The Journey”. The versions presented here are notable for their differences from the normal concert routine.

Thanks also to chadom for the artwork and to Galad Elflandsson for the new back cover.

  6. Thank you Big O Folk. I appreciate and enjoy all the work you put into this, thanks a thousands. Does anybody know if Syd B. was playing on this version of Interstellar Overdrive? I also second Hans’ motion on the summer sunset.

  8. Thanks. I have the Rome stuff and it’s stunning as you said. Nice to have the Peel stuff as well. Do you have the VPRO rebroadcast of Man and the Journey show in Amsterdam from 1969?

    To answer James: No, this is the pot Barrett version of PF, sorry. Definitely worth the download though.

  9. Truly amazing, rare boot during a time when PF was defining themselves. You can feel the energy and mood of each piece as if you were there in person. Awesome sound. Thanks for sharing.

  12. Hey guys - great post, this one. I was actually fortunate enough to find a vinyl copy in Streetlight Records in San Jose, CA about a year ago. But this post works as well - nice and clean and a HUGE Floyd rarity. So thanks AGAIN!!!!! There are many bootlegs out there of this same material that are of cloudy or multi-generational quality. So this one is IT!

  15. Similar situation for me - there is a download, but only 9 bytes.
    The other files are of excellent quality, though.
