Pink Floyd - Grantchester Meadows (Official Music Video)


 Grantchester Meadows is a Roger Waters song, originally performed solo
on the ‘Ummagumma’ album, that celebrates the English countryside, as in
other compositions such as ‘Time’. This special group performance,
taped for the BBC, with acoustic guitars and vocals from Roger Waters
and David Gilmour, plus additional piano from Richard Wright and taped
songbirds, successfully evokes a summer’s day in Grantchester, a small
village close to Cambridge, England. Grantchester’s famous former
residents include the Edwardian poet Rupert Brooke, who moved there and
subsequently wrote a poem of homesickness entitled ‘The Old Vicarage,
Grantchester’. Taken from ‘The Early Years 1965 – 1972’.

Director: Aubrey Powell, Hipgnosis. 2016 footage directed and edited by
Nick Edwards. Performance footage director: John Coney for KQED, San
Francisco 1970.
Audio recorded for BBC Radio, 12 May 1969.
