The Steel City Tour
The large followings of bands such as Pink Floyd created, during the 1970s, a lucrative market for the mass production of unofficial recordings, as it became evident that more and more fans were willing to purchase them. In addition, the huge crowds that turned up to these concerts made the effective policing of the audience for the presence of recording equipment virtually impossible. Vast numbers of recordings were issued for profit by bootleg labels.
Some Pink Floyd bootlegs exist in several variations with differing sound quality and length because sometimes listeners have recorded different versions of the same performance at the same time. Pink Floyd was a group that protected its sonic performance, making recording with amateur recording devices difficult. In their career, Pink Floyd played over 1,300 concerts, of which more than 350 were released as bootlegged recordings. Few concerts have ever been broadcast, especially during 'the golden age' of the group from 1966 to 1981.
