“Pink Floyd: Live at Pompeii” ist ein toller Live-Mitschnitt im Director’s Cut von ihrem Konzert im Jahre 1971 im Amphitheater Pompeii, wo sie vor recht leeren Rängen spielten. Geil man.
Pink Floyd: Live at Pompeii is a 1972 film featuring Pink Floyd performing six songs in the ancient Roman amphitheatre in Pompeii, Italy. It was directed by Adrian Maben and recorded in the month of October with 24 studio-quality tracks without a live audience.
The performances of “Echoes,” “A Saucerful of Secrets,” and “One of These Days” were filmed from October 4, 1971 to October 7, 1971. The remaining songs were filmed in a Paris studio, along with additional front projection footage for insertion into the Pompeii performances. The sequences in Paris were filmed in late 1971/early 1972, and can be distinguished by the absence of Richard Wright’s beard. This version was released in cinemas in September 1972 and is also included on the DVD edition as an extra feature.
