18) "The Mid-Morning Recording" Pink Floyd-'BBC Session - Paris Theater, London - 09/30/1971'
In honor of their 40th anniversary this month, and in honor of our guest in spirit, Mr. John Peel, I thought I would play ANOTHER rare Pink Floyd recording that features him hosting the show. These songs have rarely seen the light as "official releases", as this vinyl LP was only released through subscription to the BBC in the late 70's. (I, of course found mine at a really high price on eBay in the late 90's.) Pink Floyd did two sessions for Peel in the years of 1970-1971, and I believe them to be their best live recordings they ever made. This recording, along with the one we played a couple of weeks back, is certainly one of my favorite live albums ever, and I really love that John Peel's voice is all over it. This was also made during a time when Pink Floyd was, as a live band, in their prime. Recorded during their earlier period before they would find world fame and fortune with 'Dark Side of the Moon' and other successful releases. John Peel loved this band before anyone did, and even one of the first ever "Peel Sessions" from 1967 featured them. So here is, what I would think would be one of John Peel's all-time favorites from the thousands of sessions recorded under his name. All the songs on this recording are top notch, but the highlight of this recording has to be a live version of 'Echoes' featuring the full 26 minute version, played for Peel and BBC Radio One two months before it was released on their classic album, 'Meddle'. A lot of Floyd fans, me included, really wish these sessions would be released officially, but to this day the Pink Floyd BBC Sessions are omitted from their catalog. This particular recording is one of their last "great" recordings that hasn't been released on CD. This whole show and this "Mid-Morning Recording" is of course dedicated to Peely...the greatest DJ that ever lived. I know he would want us to "Play the whole thing".
