Pink Floyd – “Atom Heart Mother” (4/22/70)
This was the eighth show of Pink Floyd’s 1970 Spring US tour. Breaking away from their seminal Barret-era pieces, the group can be heard expanding material from the Zariskie Point and More soundtracks into lengthy jams alongside familiar songs from Ummagumm, while transitioning toward the sound of the Atom Heart Mother period. Here we have a 20 minute version of the yet-to-be-named title track from Atom Heart Mother. As Roger Waters says to the crowd before starting the song, “This doesn’t have a title yet, so if you think of anything clever, let us know!” Unfortunately the sound quality isn’t great.
