BBC Archives 1974 featuring The Dark Side Of The Moon live (FLAC)
In the spirit of our previous BBC Archives series (after "BBC Archives 1967-1969" and "BBC Archives 1970-1971"), Harvested is
proud to finally present BBC Archives 1974! In 1974, the BBC taped the second set The Dark Side Of The Moon and the encore
"Echoes" of the Floyd performance at Wembley Empire Pool, on November 16.
However, "Echoes" was never broadcast, and for many years only the DSOTM set was circulating from broadcast sources.
In recent years, recordings taken from the BBC Pre-FM tapes began to circulate, some of them including the long lost soundboard
version of "Echoes".
However, none of these RoIOs are fully sonically satisfactory in our opinion.
Most of them are processed and used some kind of noise reduction, sometimes very slightly (the Sirene releases), and other times
more heavily (the Winston remasters, "Time In London")
The rare, unprocessed versions currently circulating, like the "FM Pre-Master" bootleg, are pleasant but not without a certain
amount of hiss, which reveals that the lineage was not without some generational loss.
The hiss from the unprocessed versions available until now is probably one of the reasons why so much NR was used on the various
After much research, Harvested found a superior source, totally unprocessed, with much less hiss than the other unprocessed versions
circulating until now.
A spectral analysis of the audio file showed that this source was very pure and could be the result of direct transfer from the BBC
However, it is well known that the BBC mastering of that concert sounds rather dry and flat, especially the DSOTM set and our source
was no exception.
Therefore, we felt this new source needed the "Harvested treatment," in order to make this recording really shine, with good dynamics.
The remastering was done very carefully in an attempt to leave the music intact, avoiding NR, dehissing, or any other processing that
would generate artifacts.
The majority of the remastering work consisted of adjusting the audio levels, balancing the recording when needed, and bringing more
clarity and depth by applying specific EQ settings here and there.
The final result sounds great to our ears and this version boasts excellent dynamics and a well defined high end without the flaws
present on most of the other sources.
This CD is free from all NR artifacts, the amount of hiss is minimal, and the low frequency noise that can be clearly heard on all
of the currently circulating versions of "Echoes" (especially during the quiet parts) is not present here.
BBC Archives 1974 brings you this famous BBC recording in its most complete form (the line,"I've been mad for f*cking years...,"
as well as the applause and tuning between "Eclipse" and "Echoes" are present), offering the best possible quality for your
For those of you who'd like to know how this FLAC version compares to other Pre-FM RoIOs from the same concert, two more quality
bootlegs are provided, so hit it while its hot and do enjoy...
BBC Archives 1974 featuring The Dark Side Of The Moon live (MP3)
This Harvested release originates from a newly discovered unprocessed source, unlike most of the existing RoIOs of these BBC tapes.
This source is probably as close to the BBC pre-FM masters as you can get.
The audio was carefully remastered in order to make the recording really shine with a clear high end and excellent dynamics (lacking
somewhat on the original BBC mastering), avoiding any NR processing or dehissing which would have altered the music.
BBC Archives 1974 brings you this famous BBC recording in its most complete form (the lines "I've been mad for f*cking years...,"
as well as the applause and tuning between "Eclipse" and "Echoes" are present).
This hard to obtain and obscure bootleg, remastered by Pink Robert, contains only DSOTM, but shows no sign of heavy processing.
The sound is bright and clear, very natural, without artifacts.
However, there's a certain amount of hiss, probably revealing some gens in the lineage.
Harvested's BBC Archives 1974 offers better clarity in terms of sound definition (due to lower gen), and compared to other MP3
versions ("Wembley Wizards"), the high end is alot more crisp.
The second half and encore of the show of 16th November 1974 was recorded by BBC Radio One.
Although only Dark Side Of The Moon - with the line "I've been mad for f*cking years" in "Speak To Me" removed from the
mix - was broadcasted on the Alan Freeman Show on 11th January 1975.
This boot is taken from the original Pre-FM Master tapes including encore "Echoes".

This recording really captures the "Concert Hall" sound, excellent work on the mixing/editing.
