Pink Floyd by Tony Gale.

“On March 5 1967 Pink Floyd were on the bill at London’s Saville Theatre – then owned by Brian Epstein – supporting Lee Dorsey alongside the Ryan Brothers and Jeff Beck.This was probably the first time the gelatine ”psychedelic” light effects were used in a major theatre.Photographers,used to bright spot lights,were caught off guard by the low-key lighting and had relatively slow films in their cameras hence the somewhat blurred stage images which in retrospect,actually add to their intended effect”
