Everything under the sun is in tune
But the sun is eclipsed by the moon.

Fifty-five years ago, on 12th May 1967, The Pink Floyd performed their first conceptional-like concert named Games for May — Space-age relaxation for the climax of Spring at the Queen Elizabeth Hall in London.

Set up by their (then) managers Andrew King and Peter Jenner (Blackhill Enterprises) and it was promoted by classical promoter Christopher Hunt.

It was also the first surround-sound rock concert ever. Thanks to their homemade proto-quadraphonic device, the 'Azimuth Co-ordinator'.

Next to their early songs and recent finished material off their first album The Piper at the Gates of Dawn, the band also presented a totally new song specially written for this event: 'See Emily Play' (eventually then known as 'Games For May', hence its mentioning in the chorus).

Reportedly this song contained slightly different lyrics at that time. 'See Emily Play' was recorded at Sound Techniques in Chelsea not long after the concert and became the Floyd's first Top 10 hit in Great Britain.

Syd, Roger, Rick and Nick performed the following songs at the Games For May concert:

  Matilda Mother
  Flaming
  Scarecrow
  Games For May (See Emily Play)
  Bike
  Arnold Layne
  Candy and a Currant Bun
  Pow R. Toc H.
  Interstellar Overdrive
  Lucifer Sam

Before, during and after the performance a couple of sound effects could be heard. Including 'Dawn' which was a sound collage of bird calls and other natural sounds, this was also played at the foyer of the Hall prior the gig.

Besides Roger throwing potatoes at a large gong, the band (obviously Nick) also chopped up wood on stage while a man (dressed up as an admiral) was giving out daffodils to the audience.

Those lots of flowers and bubbles, produced from a machine (controlled by Rick), while the show was in progress, stained all the furniture in the hall. Because of that, the band was banned from ever playing in the Queen Elizabeth Hall again. Also, the mentioned Azimuth Co-ordinator was stolen right after the show was ending.

Nonetheless this concert is an important chapter in the band's early history.

Much later, rumours went round that the concert was taped via professional (multitrack) recording devices by EMI, but Peter Jenner denied this. Though some visitors believed to have seen recording machines at the venue, no true evidence ever came up.

The last live performance of Pink Floyd with David Gilmour, Nick Mason and Richard Wright all together in 2007. This special performance of Arnold Layne took place at the Syd Barrett Tribute Concert'The Madcap’s Last Laugh' (produced by Nick Laird-Clowes with Associate Producer Joe Boyd) held at The Barbican on May 10th 2007. The Pink Floyd members were augmented by Jon Carin (Keyboards, vocals) and Andy Bell from Oasis on bass guitar. After a star-studded line-up throughout the evening, Pink Floyd took to the stage for an incredibly emotional finale.

The concert was held to pay homage to Barrett, who had died a year earlier and sadly became the final performance of the band to include Richard Wright, who passed away the year after.

At his age, 78-year-old Nick Mason could be forgiven for wanting to spend more time with his cars, or counting his money. But in one of the more unexpected Heritage Prog moves of recent years, he's chosen to go on the road to celebrate Pink Floyd's early psychedelic era — especially the work of the late Syd Barrett, for whom he retains a great deal of affection ("Without him, none of us would be here," he remarks at one point).

For the real oldsters, this is an opportunity to revisit their youth. Lucky bastards. For the rest of us, it's a chance to enjoy music that we never expected to experience live. As the keeper of Floyd history, Mason reportedly has a spreadsheet of every show they ever did, so is able to tell us that he last played in Bath at the Pavilion 55 years ago (April 10 1967, if I'm not mistaken). The 1970 Bath Festival, at which Atom Heart Mother was unveiled, doesn't count because it actually took place in Shepton Mallet. I'll get me coat...

British rock band Pink Floyd is exploring a sale of its recorded music catalog, which includes some of the best-selling albums in history.

Representatives for the band have reached out to potential buyers, according to three people familiar with the matter who asked to not be identified because the discussions are private. The process began in the last few days, and it’s too early to know what the outcome will be, they said. Representatives of the band didn’t respond to requests for comment.

Pink Floyd is looking to capitalize on what has been a frothy market for music rights and score a deal worth hundreds of millions of dollars. Just last year, Bob Dylan sold his recordings to Sony Music in a deal estimated to be worth . Deals for songwriting catalogs have eclipsed $300 million.

While the market for some music rights has begun to soften, that shouldn’t hurt a band like Pink Floyd. The group has sold 75 million records in the U.S. alone, the 10th most of any artist, according to the .

Pink Floyd had heaviness in their DNA from day one — just not always the head-banging type.

Back in their early days, psych-rock classics like "Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun" offered a visceral power maximized via cranked-up amplifiers. And after the 1968 exit of original mastermind Syd Barrett, as they moved from small clubs to stadiums, the band organically inched toward the flash and muscle of hard rock. While they were never virtuosos, some of their signature songs — including highlights from The Wall and The Dark Side of the Moon — were carried by David Gilmour's bluesy, lyrical lead guitar. When the mood struck (and the concept supported it), they could rip with the best of them.

While we haven't necessarily rounded up their best tunes, this list does point to a fascinating intersection of intensity and quality. Here are the 10 Heaviest Pink Floyd Songs.

David Gilmour: «If Nick and I, as the two members of Pink Floyd, feel like that's we ought to do, what we owe the world, and than that is what we should do. We haven't even thought about doing live shows, I say, I guess it's a possibility but I haven't done for such a long time. But who knows, I don't know...»

This Is Not A Drill is a ground breaking new rock an roll/cinematic extravaganza, performed in the round, it is a stunning indictment of the corporate dystopia in which we all struggle to survive, and a call to action to love, protect and share our precious and precarious planet home.

The show includes a dozen great songs from Pink Floyd’s golden era along side several new ones, words and music, same writer, same heart, same soul, same man. Could be his last hurrah. Wow! My first farewell tour! Don’t miss it.

Love R.
