|Pink Floyd - BW 2nd Gen Reel - RT707pb (REC 2) (24-48)|
|Recorded at the Plumpton Racecourse, East Sussex, London, UK. Great audience recording.
Note that the tracks names/numbering is a bit strange; I'd recommend you'd use the cue file when playing back the files.

2nd Generation Reel
This is a transfer of Bernard White's 2nd Gen reel of Nick Ralph's 'Recorder 2' taping of the Floyd's appearance at Plumpton Festival. Bernard White, as many will know, was a long time supporter of Syd and set up 'Terrapin' the first Barrett fanzine. His interest in Floyd extended about as far as 1969. He didn't care to collect any later Floyd than this. The recording was on the same tape as his 2nd Gen copy of the Royal Albert Hall 26 July 1969 show, also recorded by Nick Ralph.
The tape features the show as a 1/4' single mono track on a BASF 'Low Noise High Output' 5 inch reel.
This transfer features the 'whistling' on Cymbaline and Interstellar Overdrive. It is possible that it was this copy, or the one prior to it, that introduced this artefact into the collectors' pool. It is also likely that this reel is the source of many subsequent circulating transfers.
