Gibby, thanks for recommending the Dark Side dvd! It's absolutely amazing! I have a renewed appreciation for the album!

Btw, this may sound silly but what is it that David uses for the slide intro to Great Gig and also on Breathe? That boxy thing from Fender, is that a guitar?

I told you it was hot! It's a fascinating thing to watch. Incredible just how much work went into that album. You don't notice it when you're listening to it, because it's all pieced together so well. The intro to Time must have been a nightmare to synchronise properly given that it was still ages before digital recording!

That's a lap steel guitar. Gilmour used it for most Floyd songs that needed slide, actually (e.g. Shine On, Wish You Were Here, One Of These Days, etc.)

Seriously!!! It's so interesting to watch how they strip away each element of a song until only the vocal or only the guitar or bass is left. Fantastic! I esp. enjoyed Gilmour constructing Money.

And how cool does the Money tape loop look? It's also pretty amusing in spots too. Roger's impression of the Zabriski Point director's reaction to the Us And Them piano is classic. "Eet's beyootiful but eet is too sad...eet makes me think of church!"

Nice to see Alan Parsons as well.

That was great!

First time I saw Storm Thorgeson's face I think. The genius behind all the images and album covers!

To all you people that don't have the patience to sit thru' the intro of Time and think it's self indulgent or pretentious or whatever, here's what Waters says about it on this dvd. He says he had the opportunity to go back and listen to this song and his brain kept saying "now it's gonna... now it's gonna change... ohh it's going round again..." It seemed to go on forever and ever and ever and that in those days there was no hurry to quickly keep changing the pace in order to keep the listener's attention. He ends with saying it was good. I agree with him. We're living in such an ADD world right now that artists probably don't even have much freedom to do whatever the hell they want with their music!

Oh Gibby, if you're reading this, did you catch that Waters' bit about GW Bush?

Yeah. It would be nice if Dubya could transcend his upbringing, wouldn't it? Rog isn't very fond of him to say the least.

"Oh George! Ohhhhh George!
That Texas education must have fucked you up when you were very small!"

My favourite line in Leaving Beirut.


And I couldn't agree more, regarding Time. It might be too "prog rock" for some people to listen to a bunch of chiming clocks and a long roto tom intro, but it is absolutely true; we live in a society of instant gratification, and that's reflected in a lot of pop music, punk music, etc. Sometimes it's good to have that inner "I want everything delivered in a neat package and I want it NOW" drive put on hold. If artists don't say something in four minutes or less, well, that's it for them. MTV won't play a song that breaks the seven minute barrier (when they're not showing raunchy reality shows, that is.) Radio won't play a song that breaks the seven minute barrier. I think it's a bit sad that a lot of the music being written these days is crafted to fit this reality. Some of it's good, of course, but I often find myself thinking that a particular section of whatever song I'm listening to could have been extended and developed further.

The first 2 minutes of Time are worth the price of admission alone.

Gibson Girl, by any chance, are you a Pink Floyd fan?



Yeah, I plan to check out some more. My new years resolution (among others) was to broaden my musical tastes. I have bought so far SGt. Peppers and Dark Side, I'm going to get more Beatles, Rolling stones, maybe some Who, who konws. Maybe I'll run a thread. But I think I'll be after Wish You Were Here next in terms of floyd.

So very true.

This is absolutely weird, but for the past few days I’ve been battling a head cold...and in my attempts to force a magical cure, I bought some kind of herbal tea from Dominion. After drinking it before bed, I ended up having the strangest dream: I was in the middle of a Roger Waters concert--only it wasn’t in a stadium or similar venue, it was in a high school gymnasium! All the lighting and sound was done by locals, and they even had cheap insulation blocks that were going to come down as part of the show. Just when things couldn’t possibly get any stranger, I started getting upset at people who were openly drinking alcohol from bottles and flasks and not really listing to the music. I was saying things like "Do you know who this is? This is ROGER WATERS! Why are you not paying attention?"

It was a very disjointed, two-part dream, because the very next scene featured me walking by Roger’s house (which was more of a compound). He was perched on a hill, with a beautiful view of what appeared to be Corner Brook. I was invited to play baseball in his sports field

Good Choice, I'd be going for either WYWH or Animals next.

I always feel unworthy in the Pink Floyd threads, because I haven't listened to everything--if I was any more casual as a fan, I'd be wearing permanent pajamas. I can confirm, however, that Animals is amazing. Aside from that and DSOTM, I've only heard The Wall and The Final Cut.

Getting back to Animals, has anyone seen the movie Children of Men? Part of the reason why I found it so intriguing was the scene that makes the Animals album cover come to life. After watching the movie, I went for a walk and listened to the album...and it all gelled together in a pretty interesting way.
