Christmas has come early for Pink Floyd fans. With no prior warning, the London-hailing prog-rockers have released 18 live concerts from 1972 across streaming platforms.

The collection of live tracks, recorded across shows in the UK, US, Europe and Japan, showcase performances that directly precede the launch of their renowned 1973 record, The Dark Side Of The Moon. This includes their four-night run at London’s Rainbow Theatre (February 17–20, 1972).
