Pink Floyd have just made a live performance of “Arnold Layne” available for viewing online, which comes from the band’s 2007 Syd Barrett Tribute Concert. This is also in sync with the release of a live recording of the song on Record Store Day, August 29.
This limited edition, one-sided Record Store Day 7-inch vinyl represents the last live performance of the band with David Gilmour, Nick Mason, and Rick Wright in 2007. The “Arnold Layne” number was part of the Syd Barrett Tribute Concert – ‘The Madcap’s Last Laugh’ which happened on May 10, 2007, at the Barbican. The band was joined by Jon Carin on keys and vocals, and Oasis’ Andy Bell on bass.
The concert was held as a tribute to Pink Floyd founder Syd Barrett, who died a year earlier. It also became the last performance of the band with Rick Wright in the mix as the keyboardist passed the following year.
This 2020 release is the latest to come out of Pink Floyd Records – which has been supporting Record Store Day since the label launched in June of 2016.
