Pink Floyd made one of their earliest TV performances on March 26, 1968, on the U.K. program The Sound of Change, which targeted on the counterculture revolution then taking place within the U.K., Europe and the U.S.
This performance, titled “Instrumental Improvisation,” comes from the live performance and is among the uncommon tracks included in the band’s box set The Early Years 1965–1972, which contains more than 20 unreleased tracks and 5 hours of rare live performance footage.
The clip, a usually tripped-out video from the times, shows Gilmour, Waters, Wright and Mason jamming in a studio, interspersed with scenes of hip youngsters and street demonstrations from the period. Apparently the studio was the size of a shoe box, as a result of the camera can not get a lot further than about six inches from the performers’ noses.
Pink Floyd previously premiered The Early Years 1965–1972 with the release their 1967 performance of “Interstellar Overdrive,” also shown under.
