Disc two (CD) – Live in Stockholm and John Latham sessions


Live in Stockholm 1967:

"Introduction" – 0:25

"Unknown Instrumental" (mistakenly identified as "Reaction in G") – 7:18

"Matilda Mother" – 5:34

"Pow R. Toc H." – 11:56

"Scream Thy Last Scream" – 4:00

"Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun" – 7:17

"See Emily Play" – 3:16

"Interstellar Overdrive" – 8:57

Live in Stockholm has barely audible vocals, rendering the performance almost completely instrumental. It was mastered for this release with the stereo channels out of phase and a silent gap mistakenly inserted. The original recording is ambient, so it is of lower fidelity than a typical live release.


John Latham studio recordings 1967:

"John Latham Version 1" – 4:32

"John Latham Version 2" – 5:06

"John Latham Version 3" – 3:45

"John Latham Version 4" – 2:59

"John Latham Version 6" – 3:17

"John Latham Version 7" – 2:36

"John Latham Version 8" – 2:49

"John Latham Version 9" – 2:38

The John Latham recordings are of one long extended improvisational piece split across nine tracks, it is similar to that of the extended improvisation often played during the middle section of "Interstellar Overdrive". The piece was recorded as the soundtrack for Latham's 1962 film Speak.

Bonus CD: Live at Pompeii

Not to be confused with 'Live at Pompeii', the David Gilmour live album and film.

On 5 November 2016 Pink Floyd announced, via their official Facebook page, that an extra CD would now be included in the set – Live at Pompeii.[13][14] The Pompeii performance has never been officially released on CD before. The Live at Pompeii CD was accidentally included in the 1972: Obfusc/ation set instead of the 2016 mix of the Obscured by Clouds album. Therefore the 2016 Obscured by Clouds CD was included separately in a white slipcase;[14] on the front of which is written "Obscured by Clouds 2016 remix" and on the reverse: "Replacement CD disc for Obfusc/ation [...] (Stereo 2016 mix of Pink Floyd 'Live at Pompeii' CD supplied in error)". Warner Music has to date refused to provide replacement discs where copies of Obscured by Clouds were not included in customers' box sets (all Sony Music issues had the replacement CDs). When the 1972: Obfusc/ation was released as a standalone set in March 2017, the Live at Pompeii CD was included as Disc 2 of the set.[12] The Live at Pompeii CD track listing is as follows:


"Careful with That Axe, Eugene" – 6:45

The Early Years 1965–1972 is a box set that details the early work of the English rock band Pink Floyd released on 11 November 2016. It was released by Pink Floyd Records with distribution held by Warner Music for the UK and Europe and Sony Music for the rest of the world.

The box set comprises seven volumes over 33 discs, including CDs, DVDs, BDs, vinyl records, plus memorabilia including photos, posters and tour programmes. It contains early non-album singles plus unreleased studio and live recordings. Although Volumes 1–6 have been available individually since 24 March 2017, Volume 7 – 1967–1972: Continu/ation, remains exclusive to the set. A two-CD compilation, The Early Years 1967–1972: Cre/ation, was also released.

Due to an error, a CD edition of Pink Floyd: Live at Pompeii was also included in the box set in place of the 2016 mix of Obscured by Clouds which was placed inside the set in a cardboard wallet at the last moment. The standalone edition of 1972: Obfusc/ation contains both CDs as standard.

In 2019, a number of Blu-ray discs in the set began to fail due to manufacturing defects. Warner Music and Pink Floyd announced a recall programme on 1 October 2019, which ran until 1 January 2020.
