|Pink Floyd - American Bandstand (480i MPG)|
|Recorded at the American Bandstand TV Show, Hollywood, CA, USA. Great early footage.
From the info file:
Hosted by Dick Clark
Taped on November 4th 1967
Broadcast December 16th 1967
The Pink Floyd appeared on this show during their 1st US tour. In fact, they had only been in the country for a couple of days. The band mime their latest single, 'Apples & Oranges' and is then interviewed by Dick Clark. Of all the things that Dick could have asked them (like about their unique form of music), he wants to know about how they feel about American food! I also get a big kick when Dick suddenly decides to move away from Syd and interview Rick. Also, towards the end Dick asks Syd if he wrote all the songs to which Syd replies, 'Yeah. That's Right.' With his hands on his hips Syd almost seems to want to follow up with, 'Wanna make something of it?' Dunno, maybe its just me, but it makes me laugh.
Okay, the quality isn't great and it still not only has that annoying timcode that we've all seen before, but an additional slate towards the top of the screen. There is also a small black box in which I needed to remove an ID in order to share this. But I still think its quite watchable and don't think I've ever seen it complete like this, from Dick's intro (holding up the Piper LP) through the end of the band interviews.
PS. Sorry, but actual gen info is unknown. I captured this from a VHS tape, probably 2nd gen.
