On April 30, 1970 British rockers Pink Floyd performed a set at the studios of San Francisco PBS station KQED. The resulting footage was aired as An Hour With Pink Floyd featuring the classic lineup of David Gilmour, Roger Waters, Rick Wright and Nick Mason.
The quartet starts with an early version of “Atom Heart Mother” before lighting into “Cymbaline.” Waters and Gilmour play acoustics on “Grantchester Meadows” ahead of “Green Is The Colour” and “Careful With That Axe, Eugene.” Pink Floyd brings the psychedelic-heavy performance to a close with “Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun.”
While pristine footage of the KQED performance was recently released as part of the 1970 Devi/ation box set, check out a capture from a 1982 re-airing:
