Unseen Footage of Pink Floyd Playing in 1970.

In the last week of April 1973, Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon reached No. 1 on the American charts. In the last week of April 1970, though, they had yet to crack the U.S. Top 50 after three years of recording and performing. In the midst of their third stateside tour, they weren’t selling out stadiums.

It was during this tour, on April 30, that Pink Floyd played an hour-long set in an empty Fillmore Auditorium in San Francisco, filmed for broadcast by small local television station called KQED.

“At that point, they were really anxious to have whatever publicity they could,” remembers the program’s co-producer at KQED, Jim Farber. “We did not have much of a budget. Pink Floyd did the performance and offered the rights for a certain number of airings for practically nothing. My memory is we paid them $200.”

2. I couldn't open it either.

I tried both Safari and Firefox. Let us know if you find something that works.

3. Obviously I am a Floyd fan (BigmanPigman, Animals album '77)

and tried to watch your posted link but it wouldn'd load for some reason. I wanted to see it so I googled it and got the video on You Tube. Thanks! That is a Syd song that David is singing and playing on since they just replaced Syd with his pal David. Poor Syd. The transition from Syd to David playing lead and doing vocals and the transition of songwriting from Syd to Roger took years.
