Pink Floyd stream 1972 instrumental performance

Pink Floyd are streaming video of a 1972 performance of their classic 1968 instrumental, “Careful with that Axe, Eugene.”

The band were filmed in concert at The Amsterdam Rock Circus in Amsterdam, The Netherlands on May 22, 1972 while on tour road-testing new material from a project that would eventually reveal itself the following year as “The Dark Side Of The Moon.”

“Careful With That Axe, Eugene” originally appeared as the b-side to Pink Floyd’s 1968 standalone single, “Point Me At The Sky”; live versions later appeared on the band’s 1969 album, “Ummagumma”, and the 1972 documentary “Live At Pompeii.”

Formed in London in 1965, Pink Floyd went on to sell more than 250 million albums worldwide, with 1973’s “The Dark Side Of The Moon” among the best-selling records of all time at 45 million copies, while 1979’s “The Wall” sold more than 30 million sets.

Inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in 1996 and the UK Music Hall Of Fame in 2005, Pink Floyd released their final album, “The Endless River”, in 2014.
