PINK FLOYD – ” Dark Side Live Releases “

Posted: December 26, 2022 in MUSIC

Pink Floyd quietly released 18 previously unreleased “Dark Side Of The Moon” era live shows on to streaming services, There are 18 previously unreleased Pink Floyd concerts have suddenly appeared unannounced on streaming services over the last few days, all centred around the band’s live activity in 1972 as they road-tested what would become their groundbreaking “The Dark Side Of The Moon” album.

The releases include the band’s four dates at London’s Rainbow Theatre in February of that year and a collection of alternative tracks from the “Dark Side…” album, simply titled “Alternative Tracks 1972“, which features trance remixes and ‘ultra rare’ alternative versions of five of “Dark Side’s” songs, including a rough demo of “On The Run“.

It is widely believed that the band, who also released a slew of live concerts from the early 1970s at this time last year, have released the shows in order to extend the copyright of the recordings.

Fans should be warned that last year the collection of releases disappeared as quietly as they appeared so our suggestion is to make the most of them while you can.
