I just stumbled upon the complete albums listed on YouTube, which is a better way to get your FLOYD in! Not to mention, the complete Pink Floyd Live at Pompeii is on there as well, so look for that!! Or I'll link to it when I'm not cuttin' and pastin' other things. The movie is really a MUST SEE since it documents DSotM as it's being recorded, and if on DVD, you can get the back story, which, when I was just a young music fan, I had no good idea that I'd ever see the film! The early days of home video, Beta and VHS, no optical discs (other then LD!)!

A touch of Gray is my favorite of the old Garcia tracks before he passed.

I'm not a fair weather Floyd fan by a long stretch, but based on radio exposure, I hated Money at first, then my cousins played Ummagumma for me, one time, and I instantly latched onto the band, I love all their stuff now... Even the weaker tracks like Chapter 24 from Barrett!

Ya let me down a bit by picking 'Touch of Gray' as a favorite Garcia/Dead track. The whole album was a nightmare and the only good track* that should have been on it didn't make it. I was knee deep in tour before that album was produced and got to hear them working out all the songs.

 

But you did redeem yourself with liking Ummagumma. That very well might be my favorite of the PF albums.

 

And since you mentioned Live at Pompeii in your later post - I just wanted to say that movie is a must see for any old Floyd fan.

 

 

 

*I tried to find the song on youtube, but I only know the made up name we gave it on tour - "The Daddy Song", and couldn't find it by that name. It may not exist on youtube. I may have to go to my collection and hope that doesn't require me digging through hundreds of cassette versions of shows.

Cheers for that link man, I've been meaning to watch this but I haven't come across one with subtitles and for once, the captions work on YouTube biggrin.gif I can now understand what those quintessential British voices are saying.

 

Hearing the start of "Echoes" always gives me a little shiver. It makes me think of being lost in the middle of an ocean, in a good way though (if that's possible?). Anyway, Sir Slamman, cheers again for that link. I'm off to watch it and chill out after a crappy shift in work.

Well, the most AWESOMENESS is that both the Director's Cut and the original Live at Pompeii are uploaded on the Tube! I've been enjoying the contents for over a day now, and there are plenty of live boots uploaded now. When I joined YouTube, this wasn't the case, I was still using DIAL UP back then!!

 

As for any questions, I'd love to see if I know an answer for ya! I've read a number of things, heard a number of interviews, all in an effort to know what makes the band so magical... Oh, and By The Way....

 

 

Which One's Pink?!?!

I'll watch that after work tomorrow biggrin.gif

 

Ha! Dial-Up. I remember when I used to brag to friends that I had 512kbps. I remember waiting bloody ages for the Vice City trailer to download and when it finally did the computer crashed. Things are better these days. Much better.

I've read bits and bobs too. I read Nick Mason's book "Inside Out" a while ago so that's probably the most in-depth thing I've read. I wanted to find out more about the making of "A Momentary Lapse Of Reason" too. It's one of my favourite albums of theirs and I don't really know much about it.

I found out I have a day off tomorrow so I'm going to save that video for the evening when I make my mega-epic cajun chicken burger biggrin.gif

 

Tonight, I'm going to watch Pulse. That performance of "Comfortably Numb" has to be my favourite piece of music ever. My dad showed it to me years ago and even now, when that solo get about half way through, I get hairs standing up from it's sheer beauty inlove.gif This reminds me of "One Of These Days" from the Live In Pompeii video you put up, that songs makes my mind go wild biggrin.gif

I went from the Floyd to Roger Water's solo, also found on the full albums, then I went to a few other 70s hits, Enjoying The Who, earlier Doors and Tull! hahaha

I see they even got Fleetwood Mac's full Rumors LP on YouTube, and that should be in the associated topic. The Zep O2 live gig from 2007 is also uploaded. I didn't even find they had complete tracks till a few months ago, used to just be the 10 min affairs, but now there's a whole host of 2 hour long videos!/audio listings

YouTube has gone a bit mental since I ventured it last. I only go on it when my sister gives me a link to a new song or something. I was listening to Tull earlier biggrin.gif and some John Martyn too. I'll have to check out the Fleetwood Mac LP tomorrow. I've only got one of theirs which is the Greatest Hits one. Still amazing, especially "Love That Burns". Just imagine these videos on Dial-Up wow.gif Horrible thought.

I mentioned the Total Eclipse 4 CD box set, back when I got it, and came upon the thread, There's a 3 disc highlighted upload of PF Ultra Rare trax, and just about all the Zambriskie Point songs that were hard as heck to comeby in the LP collecting daze... I'll have to sift thru them all to see what I missed!

 

Dialup meant you had to download fully to your computer's cache, in other words, go do something and come back! hahaha Then you could stream it without issue. The longer or more robust the upload content, the longer and slower it got on your end.

Uploading is more of a hassle on dial-up though! The PCI modems and such they can't even sell these days, their obsolete more then anything, perhaps?!!?

I listened thru another boot, Hollywood Bowl in 1973, but it sounded the same as the prior live one, I thought.

But this has those assorted rare tracks, three Volumes uploaded, about 45 min each I think?

Today I bought Meddle LP. It's f*cking amazing. I listened to it digitally before but it's not to compare. I heard San Tropez and Fearless completely different way. I just can't describe how f*cking good it is.

Bloody lovely icon14.gif I love Meddle. Sadly, I don't have the LP, only CD sad.gif Actually, seeing as it's Christmas I may treat myself to an LP or two from eBay. Also, Slamman, Cheers for those links man. Vol.2 was bloody brilliant. I've got the third one on now biggrin.gif I didn't see the list of songs in the first video and was so happy when "If" came on. I love the lyrics, "And if I were a good man, I'd talk with you more often than I do." and "If I were a good man, I'd understand the spaces between friends."

I would up with an Audiophile pressing of Wish You Were Here, after having that LP already.

I never paid top dollar for my LPs, and I had those Whiplash METALLICA records that shot up in price. Not The Prince or Creeping Death, but if you were a record collector, there were all sorts of goodies you kept an eye out for. I have a Boot with Pink Floyd in 1977, Texas IIRC, and one with Syd Barrett in 1967 or 68? Holland, VERY poor audio, but it was awesome just the same

I was thinking of either getting "Wish You Were Here" or "A Momentary Lapse Of Reason". I may even go crazy and get both...that's if I have the money of course sad.gif Woe is me.

I don't have many LP's but the ones I do have I love. My favourites are Rainbow's "Straight Between The Eyes", Metallica's "S&M" and Pink Floyd's "Dark Side Of The Moon". I bought the Rainbow one purely on the basis of it having the most awesome cover I'd ever seen biggrin.gif

I was RIGHT there when Momentary Lapse was releasing brand new, the week before they ran the TV ads, it was GLORIOUS! You can easily see those on the Tube archived

I had the Rainbow on cassette, but I bought Joe Lynn Turner's solo on LP, it just wasn't as good, but I enjoy CD either way, and I got Final Vinyl on CD! hahaha

 

 

 

We're going to keep filling this topic up with GOODNESS, too bad our OP, Joel can't see his thread now!?? Or can he??

 

This audio int from just this year talks about WHAT could happen to Floyd 2011, and beyond....

We already know there were a few shared moments on stage, but Dave Gilmour is reluctant to do a full fledged tour because he still thinks Roger is hard to work with, while Roger, since Live8 has had something of a change of heart. He's seemingly willing to do the FLOYD WORLD tour, just listen to the clip and see what you think? Dave thinks he'll retire the whole band. Without Richard Wright however... I just say Jon Carin will do, if you ask me.

 

OK, I know most have seen this, but DAMN, it's good!!

I remember watching a similar interview just before going to see "The Wall" in Manchester and hoping to hell that Gilmour would be there. When he played in London my heart sank and I knew that I'd missed something very special. I can't see Gilmour doing anything again to be honest. He just seems so ardent that they're over. Like you said, Roger has had a change of heart and I implore him for that 'cause he seems like a tough man to crack. I'll always hope that they do something in the future but a part of me doubts it. The day they announce a show is the day I start selling body parts tounge.gif

 

We will indeed fill this topic with greatness!

This is an interview I love

I've seen Roger at least twice, that I recall, and Pink Floyd I saw in 88 and pretty sure I saw their later tour, it all seems too long ago, ... I think I have to say I saw them both twice. Not with Roger, sadly, toooooooooo long ago.

Too long ago, I said that twice, didn't I? Well, have some more LIVE Floyd, that'll cure what ails ya!

 

 

CLAPTON, SLow Hand, here they're a bit out of practice.

Oh, speaking of interviews, I never uploaded my archives from Rockline or Knebworth 90, but there's so many already from other users, I never took the time, but with the longer vid times, I think it'd be a good idea. Roger Waters interviewed several times over the years, most notable for Amused to Death. Bob Coburn and ROCKLINE! Love that show, too bad few seem to remember it

I've known Pink Floyd for a bit but i didn't really get into them until last year. The Wall is my favorite album but "Wish You Were Here" is my favorite song by them. In fact right now as i'm typing this i'm wearing a dark side of the moon shirt icon14.gif

I lost my Pink Floyd t-shirt after going camping a while ago :'(

 

I'm incredibly envious that you've seen Pink Floyd man. I'd sell my soul to get the chance. Seeing Roger was amazing but I want David there too. If I could see something that compared to the Pulse tour, I'd be very happy indeed. Have you ever seen The Australian Pink Floyd? They're seriously good.

You should upload those archives man, I'd love to hear them.

First time I saw them in 1988, I was WAY across from the stage, and everything David Gilmour said between songs was lost in the din, I felt terrible not being able to hear it, but I enjoyed the music. Went with a co worker to the Floyd LASER shows they put on, haven't seen The Australian Pink Floyd yet, but they are so good, they played Dave's birthday when he turned 50 IIRC

Ah well, at least we've been lucky enough to be in the presence of such genius. I wasn't that close to the stage either but it didn't really bother me, I was still in awe the entire time biggrin.gif With seeing "The Wall" we didn't get all the lasers but we got some immense pyro displays and the building of the wall itself. "Goodbye Blue Sky" has never been so damn heartfelt.

That song was rather cool. Not sure if I've heard it before or not but it sounded somewhat familiar.

I'd heard that Gilmour had them for his birthday but I wasn't too sure if it was true or not. Honestly, if those guys were given the chance and the budget, they could easily bring the Pink Floyd experience to so many people who were born too late. I saw them in Manchester and they were so incredible. No faults whatsoever. I was lucky enough to see Clare Torry perform "The Great Gig In The Sky" with them that night too.

I saw In the Flesh stage one, Milwaukee, I drove all the way there to see Roger, after the show, stood outside near the back with a throng of other peeps, and we left after we saw a stretch limo pull out, thinking that HAD to be him, we all hoped to catch a glimpse of Rog! Yep, I'd love to score some autographs and tell them how much they impact our existence ... I'm glad I converted fairly early on, Money to me just seemed uninspired, some can tell from Roger's demo, the gist of getting that impression

Ah man, so close to glory! What do you mean by "converted" exactly? I know what you mean about "Money", it does lack something. It's still an amazing song but it does feel like they've left something out of it. "The Great Gig In The Sky" was the second Pink Floyd song I had ever heard ("Wish You Were Here" was the first) and it blew me away. I couldn't believe that such beauty could exist...and then I heard more and my views on everything changed. Do you remember the first time you heard them?

Well.. Converted from my stance against Pink Floyd based on radio exposure. FM radio raised me on music, that's why I was stumped about the GTA IV radio selections, I never hear that on US Radio, but anyway, I can see where they were going. Led Zeppelin also required me to dig into their catalog, as did The Who and The Stones. I love them, but I had to hear all their stuff. That's a hard mandate to discover how good an artist is, but anyone on the fence can take some advice from those who've been around, these guys have SERIOUS back catalogs!!

 

Money is the song where I knew I had some odd feeling of dislike, at that time, mid 70s, Dark Side probably did blow up all over the charts. When Animals got released and airplay, along with Wish You Were Here, I was a fan by then, late 1970s.

 

Found this to add to my YOUTUBE favorites. NICE

With Dave Gilmour in London... O2

Same here, man. I must see Gilmour at some point. Don't care how but it must happen.

 

When I first started listening to Pink Floyd I immediately went out and bought all the albums I could, I had to hear more. I know what you mean about digging around. I've been doing it a lot more with The Who recently, found some bloody nice stuff. Also, the lady is my signature is Charlene Soraia, if you haven't heard her yet you have a treat in store. She has a cool sort of prog rock sound going on. "When We Were Five" is a great track. She released a cover of The Calling's "Wherever You Will Go" and it's a bit odd because that song is nothing like the rest of her album.

Roger Waters and Ron Geesin did Music from the Body for an actual Industry medical film, shows what progressive doctors there were at the time. Later in the mid 1980s, along with David Bowie, he did this music....
