Pink Floyd at Bath. 28 June 1970
   Here's a set list for the Floyd's show from the early hours of Sunday, there may be better copies out there somewhere than the quality of the tape stated below.

Sound Quality: VG- Time: 70 minutes

  • Setlist:
    Green is the Colour 
    Careful With That Axe, Eugene 
    A Saucerful of Secrets
    Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun 
    Atom Heart Mother

    Several boots purported to be of this show also have Embryo and If as part of the setlist , but these stem from a later 1971 BBC broadcast .

  Atom Heart Mother was recorded by the BBC and broadcast at an unknown date . This appears to be in limited circulation , its not known whether the rest of the set was recorded or not , which is a shame as the quality of the AHM is infinitely superior to the audience tape .

Personnel :

  • Roger Waters-bass,vocals
  • Dave Gilmore-lead,vocals
  • Nick Mason -drums
  • Rick Wright.-Keys , vocals

plus a brass and choir section for Atom Heart Mother.

Ron Geesin collaborated in the arrangement of the song, but apparently walked out during the concert . Anyone know more about this story ?

     As you can see, fairly standard for Floyd in 1970,apart from Atom Heart Mother. This was the first time this number was played under that name. It is widely thought this was the premier of the song, but  an earlier version had been aired previously under the name of 'The Amazing Pudding' three or four times on their Spring 1970 European tour.

It was however, the UK premiere of the song  .

      I did not catch this set as I was worn out and just too cold and wet to go on watching bands.
Yes I know I was silly , but at the time I'd seen the Floyd so frequently it was always a matter of , "Oh we can see them anytime, lets catch the US bands " and we had been awake for the better part of 30 hours. 

Now of course, I deeply regret missing out.

Several DVD's are now available of this show and apparently one features good quality sound and video . However, the clips featured on Youtube are atrocious, mainly due to the fact that two camera sources are mixed on top of each other. This might have been very nice for those who were watching the screens whilst tripping, but the quality is so bad that it just looks like a grey blur . Its very hard to see anything clearly . This is tragic , but thems the breaks.......
