PINK FLOYD "Interstellar Overdrive" (1969)

“Interstellar Overdrive” (13:31)
Unreleased Ummagumma Test Press

Pink Floyd’s space epic, “Interstellar Overdrive,” originally intended for the live half of Ummagumma. Reportedly, this recording made it as far as a test pressing before getting yanked from release altogether. Recorded May 2, 1969, at the same Manchester College show that produced some of the other live stuff on Ummagumma.

    thanks for this…after listening to it I’m not sure if I heard it before, interesting but absolutely nowhere near the excitement of not only the studio version on Piper but also the other live versions with Syd.

    If you’ll allow me a slight tangent…

    Fans of 1969 Floyd will, of course, know about the Zabriskie Point “lost album” (only 3 PF tracks on the original soundtrack; 4 more on the Expanded CD; Laserdisc versions, etc.).

    I’ve been slowly building up a “complete version” for the last couple of years. I was doing one more sweep of the internet (to try to find better copies of the “Omay yad” tracks) and – wouldn’t you know it? – someone has beaten me to the punch!

    There are various so-called “Complete” or “Ultimate” versions floating around, but this one is really the real deal. I’d disagree with the sequencing (track order) a bit, but that’s a minor quibble.
