Not that I know of. It seems unlikely as I don't think anything off Piper has surfaced unofficially.

As far as I know it is Peter Jenner shouting space words/themes through a megaphone. I think this is multitracked. I did read that it took a whole session just to record that sound effect due to some beurocracy or something.

The version on BBC's Look of the Week had a pre-recorded intro but obviously different from the album version.

Bits from "Piper" sourced from a Capitol Radio broadcast have appeared on bootlegs.

I don't think it is pre-recorded on that gig no. Peter Jenner used to say he had to shout stuff through a megaphone at Floyd Gigs for AD as well. Probably the same for look of the Week, with him offset.

Ah, I never knew that. Rick and Nick probably joined up with him offset, in that case, while Roger and Syd did their interview.

The Copenhagen show didn't have the megaphone intro, though, although I don't doubt he couldn't have made it to all of their shows.
