        01.     ASTRONOMY DOMINE
        02.     INTERSTELLAR OVERDRIVE
        03.     SET THE CONTROLS FOR THE HEART OF THE SUN
        04.     ROGER WATERS INTERVIEW

The legendary Pink Floyd concert at the First International Pop Festival in Rome
in May 1968. This well recorded performance captures Waters, Gilmour, Wright and
Mason in their very early Post-Barrett era; the time when the band was busy trying
to reinvent themselves after the crucial split with genius Syd Barrett. This was
even before the release of their second album, when Waters and Co. really began to
extend the classic three / four minute song format towards longer and more open
sound forms. A marvelous track list including seminal compositions and psychedelic
manifestos such as "Astronomy Domine", "Set The Control for the Heart of the Sun"
and "Interstellar Overdrive" all great sparks for visionary instrumental progressions
and far out improvisations. The album ends with an excerpt of Roger Water's voice
from a radio interview broadcast. Limited edition of 500 copies on green vinyl.
