Streaming the Pink Floyd: where are all the potheads?

While catalogues now tend to be similar between streaming platforms, besides a few notable exceptions, it’s interesting to note how top-tracks can differ between services.

If you’re listening to the Pink Floyd on Spotify, Rdio or YouTube, top-tracks tend to be from their “mainstream” area, especially The Wall and Dark Side of the Moon.

Yet, top-tracks on Deezer are much more interesting, including live tracks from the Kralingen festival in 1970.

It might be due to their availability on Deezer before the full catalogue (hence getting more plays), or because potheads prefer Deezer to Spotify, but I thought it was a fun fact to note. Anyway, enjoy the following performance below, or check the festival album on Deezer!

And, of course, you can listen to them on seevl as well, with top-tracks gathered from iTunes.
