    Default Best Late '71 show for a n00b?

    I may be in the minority and/or committing treason by saying this, but I don't really know much about Floyd before Wish You Were Here. Can't even say I really like Dark Side of the Moon too much. So, I want to get acquainted with some of the earlier stuff. I kinda, sorta like Set The Controls, and I was looking through some setlists from late '71 and I think I want to try this stuff out.

    What's the best show to get from that period? I gotta start with something clean and audible before I go for the "recorder in the pocket"-sounding stuff, so does anyone have any suggestions? Hopefully it's something still on the tracker, but even if it isn't I can check out other sources for it.

    Much appreciated!

    San Diego,Quebec,Washington comes to mind.

    "They don't want people smart enough to sit at the kitchen table and figure out how badly they're getting ****ed by a system that threw them overboard 30 ****in' years ago,they don't want that.You know what they want? Obedient workers.People who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paperwork and just dumb enough to passively accept all these increasingly shittier jobs with the lower pay,the longer hours,the reduced benefits,the end of overtime and the vanishing pension that disappears the minute you go to collect it"

    Not late 71 but try Neonknight's new torrent of Sheffield 1970-12-22 that's just been put on the tracker. DON'T be put off by the first track (which I really like) but immerse yourself in the whole show. The 2 Montreux shows in November 70 aren't too shabby either 😉👍🏽

    You can't go wrong with these. They would be my picks as well, San Diego especially!

    If you are wanting to check out more pre-Darkside stuff, here's some other suggestions that are all in great sound quality:

    -9-22-1972 Hollywood Bowl

    -11-21-1970 Montreux

    -4-29-1970 San Francisco

    -9-17-1969 Amsterdam

    -The BBC Sessions from 1967 - 1971


    Happy hunting!

    Washington (1971-11-16) has an amazing "One Of These Days" ... well worth the trip!
    Here is a 24/96 transfer:- http://yeeshkul.com/forum/showthread...HG-tapes-24-96
    Cheers

    BTW, Boblingen '72 is amazing too...

    Perfect timing for this question. I'd say that 1971-10-17 San Diego is the perfect show to get your feet wet. Pay close attention to Dave's playing on Careful with that Axe, Eugene and Fat Old Sun, it's beautiful. I could go on and on but you cannot go wrong. Neonknight just torrented a superb transfer but after the site crashed I think it has to be re-torrented.

    Is this where I'm supposed to say something clever?

    I think a lot more people have been in your spot than you'd think, most people discovered early floyd after hearing the wall/wywh/dsotm!

    In 1971 the band was starting to sound more like a mainstream prog band thanks to meddle, but a lot of their music was still pretty out there. I don't mean that in a bad way, I love both eras very very very much, but all in all the progressive noodling stuff isn't very beginner friendly. I know you said you aren't a huge dark side fan, but i'd suggest one of their shows from 1972 instead, as it's a great combo of darkside and early floyd. The version of darkside they play on that tour is also slightly different than the studio version, and maybe more to your taste

    Heres a link to a thread I started on the best shows of that year - http://yeeshkul.com/forum/showthread...ght=1972+shows

    Happy hunting,
