Watch Pink Floyd React to Bootleg Album 'Pinky'

A video clip released as part of Pink Floyd's Early Years 1965 - 1972 collection shows the band discussing bootlegging of its live material.

The band and its manager Steve O'Rourke discuss how the bootleggers hurt the the band's bottom line, but more importantly, its reputation.

They appear utterly disgusted upon hearing a snippet of the bootleg LP, titled Pinky, most upset with the poor recording quality making them appear unprofessional.

 


The documentary excerpt also includes footage of the band working on the song "Echoes." They seem much happier with that.

The announcer mentions that Floyd's "new album," which would have been 1971's Meddle.

And while we're at it, here's a great live version of "Echoes":
