ROIO of the Week [Recordings of Indeterminate Origin]

John Peel, the British broadcaster who died last year on Oct 25, made a huge impact on bands and music fans during his lengthy career with the BBC. BigO remembers him by featuring for the next few weeks some of the sterling music he introduced. It has always been the duty of DJs and music critics to spot trends and highlight talent that otherwise would be ignored. Peel was never a follower of fashion but always searching for music that spoke a different language from the conventional. Oct 13 is International John Peel Day.

PINK FLOYD
BBC Archives [Ayanami, 2CD]
July 16, 1970 and Sept 30, 1971

When John Peel was alive, he was more than a radio presenter. He championed music, music that wasn't fashionable or current. You could say he was interested in all kinds of music and probably felt that different music could appeal to different people. In memory of John Peel, who died October 25, 2004, here are two early Pink Floyd shows presented by Peel.

On July 16, 1970, Pink Floyd performed at the Paris Cinema in London. As stated in the liner notes to The Floyd's Of London, " Peel, at the time, was something of a maverick. Bucking the Top-40 format, he was more interested in promoting almost anything that was not in the mainstream, and had been a huge admirer of the Pink Floyd."

The tracks performed were:

1, [Opening Speech]
2. Embryo
3. Fat Old Sun
4. Green Is The Colour
5. Careful With That Axe Eugene
6. If
7. Atom Heart Mother [with John Alldis Choir and the Philip Jones Brass Ensemble.]

Appearing on the Peel Sunday Concert, this was considered a landmark concert where the group premiered two new pieces, If and Atom Heart Mother. The show was first broadcast July 19, 1970. This show was re-broadcast on Swedish Radio, P3 on October 7, 2005.

Almost a year later, on Sept 30, 1971, at the same venue, the group performed the following tracks:

1. Fat Old Sun
2. [John Peel Announcement]
3. One Of These Days
4. Embryo
5. Echoes
6. Blues

This set was broadcast on Peel's In Concert programme on Oct 12, 1971. This was the first time two key songs were performed on the BBC - Echoes (at one point it was called The Return Of The Son Of Nothing) and One Of These Days. But fans will probably want to listen to the rarity that is Blues.

The quality of these shows is brilliant. Our copy comes from the Japanese Pink Floyd specialist label Ayanami.
