Echo of the Distant Tide
If it was Friday today, I’d be telling that I’m wrapping another week with the Floyd’s classic of the classics – Echoes. This one is coming from the band’s BBC archives (1970-1971). The archives bootleg is comprised of two sets (one recorded on July 16, 1970 and the other on September 30, 1971). Both shows were broadcasted by John Peel’s “In Concert” program.
Besides Echoes, the band played Fat Old Sun, One of These Days, Embryo and an exclusive and rarity Blues. Though it doesn’t have that cult status as the Pompeii version, this version of Echoes is nothing less spectacular in all its glory. Have a listen.
