Today's Gig

On Tuesday, June 27 1967, The Pink Floyd were in EMI Studio 3 (Abbey Road) with producer Norman Smith and engineers Peter Bown and Jeff Jarrett, recording overdubs for 3 tracks to be included on their debut album (The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn): Interstellar Overdrive, Flaming and Lucifer Sam.

"I've said this before, and I don't know how many people know this...that 'Interstellar Overdrive' as far as I can recall was recorded twice, on top of each other...the whole lot again, just played on top." Peter Jenner
(quoted in 'Random Precision: Recording the Music of Syd Barrett 1965-1974' by David Parker)
