New video: Green Is the Colour

Posted October 26, 2016 by Floydian Slip

green-video
Rolling Stone has posted the premiere of a new video for Pink Floyd‘s “Green Is the Colour” from the band’s soundtrack to the 1969 film “More.”

Footage from the video, below, comes from the Pop Deux Festival, Saint-Tropez, France, shot Aug. 8, 1970. Creative director Aubrey “Po” Powell incorporated new footage by Nick Edwards into the piece.

This is the third video tease from “The Early Years” boxset releasing Nov. 11, following new videos for “Grantchester Meadows” and “Childhood’s End.”

Oddly, the audio on this video seems to come from a different source than the film, and Rolling Stone doesn’t specify it. (The “Grantchester Meadows” video also borrowed film and audio from different sources.)

There are multiple versions of “Green Is the Colour” on the upcoming boxset, as well as multiple versions of “The Beginning,” an early title for the song when it was being performed as part of “The Man and The Journey.”

Addendum: Audio for this clip comes from a BBC Radio performance recorded May 12, 1969. The video now also appears on the official Pink Floyd YouTube channel.
