Pink Floyd topic

Recommended Posts

Slamman

Dark Side of the Moon is the only disc available on SACD multichannel, sadly... Both the Eagles (Hotel California) and Pink Floyd have gotten one signature album reproduced in modern tech terms... I welcome ALL of them remastered for digital surround, especially if there are original Quad mixes.

 

I think you would have known about that message if you were up on your Floyd! It's been known for many a year!

 

Back masking at that time, 1978-79, still seems alien because it wasn't really in the news that I was aware of...until the 1980s were in full swing. Led Zeppelin were also blamed. Ozzy comments on a quote from Suicide Solution believed to have been intended to be played backwards... "Get the Gun...shoot shoot"

Ozzy was flabbergasted at this when he was told... in the video doc.. Don't Blame Me.

Well, I was surprised I didn't know about it, hence why I asked if it was bullsh*t. Because, I would of thought I knew about, being a big Pink Floyd fan. So apart from that I know almost everything. That being said - I only got into Pink Floyd at the end of last year, but I'm already a huge fan.

 

Moving on, I bumped into a flyer at the guitar store I got to for weekly lessons, and it was advertising a concert which is coming up in two weeks in my home city by the PF cover band called "The Ultimate Pink Floyd Spectacular". With a few searches on isara I found out they're very good so I'm definitely buying myself a ticket.

 

I'm quite excited. smile.gif

I'm not knocking anybody down, just saying, there's more to Pink Floyd then "Which one's Pink"?

I saw that old book Pink floyd, a Visual Documentary, as I stated, by Miles...along time ago that was the best PF book around, however, if you are a serious devote of the PF, pick up Nick Mason's book, he's very fun to read and seems to recall things rather well... I love the book, filled with pictures as well.

Pink Floyd are easily one of the best bands ever, and I've never even done drugs (if you need drugs to fully appreciate something, it's probably not even that good in the first place).

 

I bough DSOTM on iTunes a couple weeks ago, Us and Them is the best song ever written in the last century.

Damn, you and I are on the same page!! I concur whole-heartedly!

 

Nick Mason and Rick Wright both chose Us and Them as their personal favorite track.

Dave Gilmour chose Wish you Were Here, and Rog....

Well, I never heard him pick one, but perhaps Shine On in honor of his mate Syd? A worthy guess anyway.

I've seen quad receivers, namely Marantz.

I am not up to speed on the turntable end. Many of the masters can be used to digitally make SACD/DVD-A/and MLPCM (I think that exists), what have you... biggrin.gif

I saw Australian PF on Public TV here in the States.

I think it was close but "No Cigar".

 

I'm being honest that musically it was very tight, but vocals are no match for Roger, Richard and Dave....all have amazing singing voices that no one else possesses

The Comfortably numb guitar solo is the greatest in the history of rock and roll.

I love the live version of On The Turning Away, almost NEARLY as epic as Comfortably Numb, check that out as well...in fact, the live intro is one of my favorites...from Delicate Sound of Thunder and the Venice, Italy show (which is a bit off, but still good ...1989)

I didn't think I'd catch any arguments in here, though if I posted that in the metal topic it might have caught some resistance colgate.gif

 

This thread might inspire me to pop in The Wall DVD before going to sleep tonight.

Obviously The Wall, WYWH and DSOTM are going to get mentioned forever and a day when the name Pink Floyd (Sound) comes up, however, dig into the archives of each member, and you'll find LP's like Mason and Fenn with D. Gilmour on one amazing track, or Rick Wright's Broken China and Wet Dream recordings.

 

Aside from Gilmour's three solo recordings, the first two of which are gleaming examples of his best works....There is Roger Waters working with Ron Geeson on a soundtrack to an ACTUAL film about the Human Body... Aptly titled "Music From The Body"

 

This particular album is unlike anything you've heard before or WILL hear AGAIN!!! I highly urge a listening to it and "Give birth to a Smile" ....while you're at it!!

How bout it ppl??? More PF discussion needs to happen, I love these guys more then most other music out there, I could talk about them for hours!

 

I would truly like to know who bought the David Gilmour BluRay 2 disc set here? I enjoyed it for a fewhours last night on my PS3.... Took some time to find the L PCM to Multichannel on the display output options via the Sony OSD! I was trying all other manner of attempts until I stumbled across that adjustment!

 

I love Wots, Oh the Deal, done live on the second disc, a rare track from Obscured by Clouds.

 

As well, Dave performs a classic from 1994 (last live outing) of the song On The Turning Away from the first PF album post Waters, and it's simply amazing, but cut very short due to the placement in a doc video.

 

Get this set if you neglected it, you'll thank me later!!!

Sorry, a follow up BUMP ****

 

 

I was enjoying a compilation found on the World renowned eBay auction site.... a collection that is 3 VCD discs in length and included a BBC audio disc and stickers as well. This may not be found anymore, but it compiles all the promos most widely found from Pink Floyd and that entails' the early clips from the first album, som famous bootleg video as well as electronic press kits. It covers the whole of their history and if you can find it, you'll enjoy that VCD format of this material is some of the best you'll ever lay eyes and ears upon!!!

Well as I posted in the vinyl topic, I bought my first vinyl of many more to come. It's the Wish You Were Here LP if you didn't read it. I haven't listened to it yet but it seems to be in perfect quality so I'm sure it'll be mint.

 

Also, has anybody here got Echoes: The Best of Pink Floyd? I've never bothered with it since I've got all their albums anyway but I've heard it's almost a unique listen and that it almost sounds like a whole album rather than separate songs in a compilations since they weave the songs into each other just like most Pink Floyd studio albums. Is this true or should I just ignore it?

I can't think of if I have that or what... is that a CD collection then?

I recall, a re-release of all their albums, but I had them already. One of the boots of live cuts I purchased is one of the best, REACTOR, is the name of it.

 

Also if you want one solo LP, perhaps, thought Nick, Roger, Rick, and David all released solo discs, I heartely recommend ABOUT FACE, the 84 DG album.

 

Besides Let's Get Metaphysical and Murder, there's Out of the Blue, a song I tend to sing a lot, from memory! Dave's best work outside the Floyd, though he prefers On an Island.

 

That other album featured two songs co-penned by Pete Townshend!!

I honestly couldn't understand much of what you just said but to answer your first question; no, it's simply a greatest hits album they released back in 2001. I believe the CD collection you are talking about is the Oh, by the Way box set they released last year.

I don't know what you are referring to not understanding unless you try and interpret the words that are confusing. I am thinking about the Shine On remasters, that was not recent, and may have been after the PULSE release, I can't rightly recall.

 

I'm thinking of YouTubing some singing a Gilmour song from About Face, like Murder. I love that, not to mention the album is just, really, really good.

 

RE-Actor is the bootleg CD compilation of greatest live cuts not found elsewhere, at least in a good mastered CD. This is not like most bootlegs.

 

Also, I mentioned About Face because it was the solo album following the Final Cut, where David Gilmour claimed he felt like a session musician on that record, and his solo LP was a much more lively experience, and the tour was released to tape video by CBS Fox.

I found a very interesting comment on amazon today, where someone claimed that 'The Piper at the Gates of Dawn' could very well be a concept album. This isn't the first time I've heard someone say this either, I've read it on some other sites but never really took notice of it.

 

Here's a quote: "I find it surprising that no one can hear the concept in the record that the band made with Syd. It starts with outer space bleeps and ends with infant-like duckcall sounds very much back on earth. For me the first seven trax on "Piper" are all variations on the descending riff ideas bookended by "Astronomy" and "Interstellar" and shows Syd and gang exhausting the limits of British psychedelia. The last four numbers continue the ego subversion with bucolic metaphors and metaphysics and a special whimsical humor, but all indicate acceptance and retreat and a kind of fragile humanity. The Syd story is all right here encapsulated!"

 

I can definitely see what he is saying. It could quite possibly be regarded as a concept album, whether it was a coincidence or not. Calling it a definite concept album is certainly sounding a lot like 2+2=5, but it's an interesting idea anyway.

 

Great album. Shine on Syd.

 

 

edit: After listening through the album again, it turns out to be a pretty dumb idea. I can see what he's saying but by going by that you can almost twist any album into making it seem like it has a concept.

With Dark Side of the Moon, PF had achieved all they had dreamed of and more, after that it was a bit of fumbling about wondering what else they wanted or needed to do. Had they just stopped at that point, it would have been a great loss.

 

 

About this time, Pink Floyd stopped doing live albums prior to their release, this in large part due to frequent, unabashed bootlegging. It was not tightly restrained in the manner it is today, I would wager.

 

 

We were just discussing this in the Eagles email group (googleGroups) with regard to the tour, and the Eagles themselves are greatly opposed to video and photos during shows. BUT, now you have cell phones that do that all and they often get past checkpoints and venues.

Sorry but what is wrong with you? I mean, like, seriously. You randomly post a paragraph or two of a part of Pink Floyd's history without any real reason whatsoever, and this isn't the first time you've done something like this in here as well. If we all posted like you, this topic would be one of the most popular topics on the forums filled with members posting certain things about Pink Floyd's history that everyone knows about or doesn't care about just to show off their knowledge and increase their e-dick.

That whole bit within the Floyd tapestry came about, as Roger puts it, from his days as a child, listening to radio theater before going to bed. We had a similar thing on radio that I recall, years later, literally. It was an amazing thing to be privy to.

 

That audio sound effect segue is known as cinema verite' (IIRC)

I can't help if you think my insight is pure "crap", but it comes from someone who's likely 20 years older, and I feel a need to pass along nuggets of info I picked up in the time. You could find all the various books but some of the info I obtain is from old radio interviews I taped off the radio on cassette... in the days before digital and Internet.

 

I am surprised Campo, after the agreements we had before. I was urged by mods to not do Off Topic, so it will have some bearing from now on.

 

I am only replying after reading some of the replies, not out of the thin air on a lark.

I am not, however, let's not drag the great PINK FLOYD into this, I am out of a job and I spend more time checking in here then anywhere else. I would think our GTA common interest would make more people get along here. I don't understand the reason for dislike and hate... whatever the reason. We can easily chose to agree to disagree instead!
