Pink Floyd is streaming a live performance of “Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun”. This was filmed at Brighton Dome, United Kingdom on June 29, 1972.

“Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun” was featured on the band’s second studio album “A Saucerful of Secrets”. Written by Roger Waters, it’s the only song where all five members played since the guitar parts were recorded by both David Gilmour and Syd Barrett. Waters later commented that this was one of his first compositions that he felt truly proud of.

This has since become a staple in Waters’ setlist during his concerts.

Meanwhile, Zee Productions is set to release a new range of jigsaw puzzles under their Rock Saws brand featuring album artwork from Pink Floyd’s Atom Heart Mother, A Momentary Lapse Of Reason, A Collection Of Great Dance Songs, Delicate Sound Of Thunder, Echoes and The Endless River. It will be available on March 12.

Rock Saws said in a statement, “With over 50 years of monumental artwork behind them, much of it created by the master himself, Storm Thorgerson, these album covers are practically as influential as the band themselves. They are high art, reflecting the magic of a band who would change the course of music forever.”
