Two of my favorite things in this world are good music and good beer. Somehow they've always gone hand-in-hand with me, so I thought I'd spend a little bit of time explaining what I like in both. The making of each to me is an art form and both are necessary to a good outlook on life and general happiness. They both seem better while you're sharing them with others, and each enhances the other.

Pink Floyd - 40 years ago today

On November 21st, 1970, forty years ago today, Pink Floyd played the first night of a two night stand at Montreux Casino. This show began at a very late hour and Roger Waters said during the show that it was "Too late for mind expanding." The show ended up so late that they felt it was best to conclude the set with some slow blues.

The two shows are my favorite Pink Floyd shows of that era. They showed glimpses of many works that were to be released later on. This is the first night of those two nights. This is a very good recording that you should enjoy.I hope to share the second night's entertainment with you soon.

FYI: The numbering of these tracks indicate the disk and track number of each piece.

(In case you're wondering this is a full year before the fire at the casino that Deep Purple wrote a song about entitled Smoke on the Water.)
