The Australian Pink Floyd Show is an incredible live concert featuring amazing musicians performing Pink Floyd's music with astonishing note-for-note perfection in a dazzling stage show. This public television special showcases newly enhanced stage, light, laser and special effects in their sold out May 2007 concert at London's most prestigious venue, The Royal Albert Hall. The ultimate endorsement is from David Gilmour, Pink Floyd's guitarist, and a fan himself, having seen The Australian Pink Floyd Show three times.

Very few Pink Floyd's shows have been recorded, especially dating from the 'golden age' of the Floyd (early 70's), when they invented a new style of rock.
This is one of the more celebrated recordings of The Pink Floyd filmed in KQED studios in San Francisco on the afternoon of April 29, 1970.
This film is nothing short of "must see" documentary history. I'll never be able to fully express how moving it is to see the young men of Pink Floyd during uninhibited moments of creativity, eating and chatting together, rehearsing, having philosophical discussions about the fate of rock-n-roll music and the shaking off of their drug-oriented image, and even arguing now and then.
Beyond how intriguing the band and it's members are, the film itself is so well directed and beautifully shot. The sound is excellent. Incredibly artistic film montages add to, rather than detract from the music. I have never seen a better portrayal of live music. The sheer musicianship of these men is mind boggling. Each is highlighted at different points in the film and it is clear that they have immense skill and talent.
Pink Floyd was so ahead of its time and will never seem out of style. And this film, although shot in 1972, is as fresh as a daisy. There are some incomparable moments, making this truly the best rock documentary I have ever seen. David Gilmour looks very handsome, by the way, and will always be my favorite guitar god.
Like long hair man - as the man said. From the mystic swirls of time, or the 60s, to put it another way, came the Fairies, who begat the Pink Fairies and many happy hours of psychedelic bliss. To get the chronology right, the 'Live At The Roundhouse' album first came out on Big Beat in 1982, but was originally recorded at the famous engine shed in July 1975. Then in 1978 drummer Twink cut a 12" E.P. with some friends, which came out on Chiswick Records and produced the wonderfully mixed genre "Psychedelic Punkeroo". Finally a re-formed Pink Fairies came out with 'Previously Unreleased' in '84.They're all here, Larry Wallis, Duncan 'Sandy' Sanderson, Paul Rudolph, Russell Hunter, Twink and even half a song from Mick Farren. I always thought "Uncle Harry's Last Freakout" just about summed it up, but then 15 years of the summers of love and it's all back with us.
Pink Floyd were filmed in concert a number of times in the early 1970s, and as such footage goes, this was not the best performance nor the most dramatically shot. The show filmed at and broadcast by KQED public television in San Francisco in April 1970, for instance, had more compelling performances, and the more familiar scenes shot for the Live at Pompeii movie were certainly filmed with more cinematic flair. But if you're a serious Pink Floyd fan and want even more, this is certainly a satisfactory, professionally made, five-song, 50-minute concert film of an August 8, 1970 performance at the Saint Tropez Music Festival, originally done for broadcast on the French TV program Pop 2.
