The tracks on this may be a bit out of order, since Pink Floyd
usually had a different setlist order than shown here -- and usually
didn't play two songs for their first set. ;-) Also I'm not so sure AD,
AHM and FOS are from the same source and show as everything else -- the
sound on those 3 tracks is clearer and closer.
Tape cuts in.
Roger: Okay, here we go. This is called Astronomy Domine.
Applause, AD starts up. Crowd applauds during intro, but it sounds
like someone shushes them, maybe Roger. Loud applause at end. Tape cuts
Roger: [...do intend] to do is a song off our most recent album,
it's [one? sounds like "number on a"] side, and it's an instrumental and
it's called Atom Heart Mother. And when we've done t--
Pleased applause interrupts him.
Roger: (sounds pleasantly surprised) [Thank you!...] I
propose to sing all the brass parts myself...but you may not hear them,
as I shall sing them rather quietly. When we've finished that, we're
gonna take a break...and then we're gonna come back and do some more.
AHM with truck motor follows. Applause.
Dave: Thank you.
Roger: Thank you. [...]
Announcement in German starts; tape cuts...
Roger: [...] new song and it's called Fat Old Sun.
Applause, FOS follows. Applause at end.
Low chatter in German after FOS, beyond my limited skills -- anyone
else want to translate it? Side ends. Tape cuts to tuning, then....
Roger: Okay, uh, this is a song we wrote sometime ago, but...
A weird, high-pitched voice says, through the mike, "Ya pa" or
something like that ["Y'a pas", maybe?)
Roger: ...for a film called More, this song is called Cymbaline.
Cymbaline follows. Nick plays, quietly, during first 30 sec. or so of
footsteps. Crowd laughs, applauds during footsteps. When crowd applauds
a second time sounds like someone, maybe Roger, shushes them. Crowd
applauds at end of footsteps. Applause at end.
Roger: Thank you.
Tape cut, right into a very good Embryo. Applause at end.
Roger: Thank you.
DG: Thank you!
Roger: This is a song called Green is the Colour. Following it
fairly closely will be an instrumental called Careful With That Axe,
Applause, mic movement and taps by taper, GitC starts right up.
Applause at end of CWTAE. Tuning starts, tape cuts.
Cuts back in to the intro of an excellent Set the Controls. At the
end, after the gong and other instruments have died out, a few people
start to applaud, but they're shushed. The crowd is silent for a few
seconds. Then a larger number start to applaud, but again they're
shushed. Finally, after a few seconds more, the whole crowd bursts into
enthusiastic applause, amidst shouts of "Bravo!"
Roger: Thank you.
A little chatter near taper, in German. Mic movement, then a little
Cuts back in to whistling in audience. Whistlers start imitating
birds, to which there's a little bit of shushing in the audience. Then a
great moment: as if in reply, Dave starts imitating their birdcalls,
using his guitar with heavy delay and other effects, as well as making
other sounds! I think Roger gets in on it as well, because there are a
few Eugene-style sounds in there too, and when he tries to announce the
Roger: This is-- (Stops because of heavy delay on his mike.)
He clears his throat, and that repeats through the delay as well. A few
audience members chuckle.
Roger: (now without delay) This is our last piece, this
evening...it's an instrumental, and it's called a Saucerful of Secrets.
Enthusiastic applause, ASoS starts up. It cuts at the end of
