    Incredible, amazing, awkward, awe-inspiring, innovative, breathtaking escapism, beautiful realism...et cetera, et cetera...


    I'll start with this, as I am listening to it at the moment....

    Thanks Rednik, love that !!!!

    And while we're in that classic era...

    I'm sure we've all seen "Classic Albums: Dark Side of the Moon", but here's a great documentary of "The Making of Meddle".
    "The first real Pink Floyd album" - Nick Mason.



    Meddle for me is my essential holiday album :P

    Two different outfits as far as I know. Their stuff on YouTube looks great though.

    Anybody like any of the barrett solo stuff? Although a lot of it is raw and somewhat unfinished songs like gigolo aunt and dominoes are imo truly great.
    But I hover between piper and animals as my favorite Floyd album depending on my mood, but they are all excellent in there own way

    I find the Barrett stuff a bit depressing tbh. Like a soundtrack to his implosion.

    I must say, I'd have a hard time picking out a favourite. I've been 'immersed' in the Immersion box sets of Dark Side, Wish, and Wall, which I picked up when they were released. That's a lot of versions to get through! Also picked up fresh 180g vinyl copies.

    My name is endacl, and I'm a Floydaholic...

    LOVE Pink Floyd. Animals is my favourite Floyd album, love its darkness and cynicism. Hopefully going to see Roger Waters in the Aviva next month, if I can afford a ticket. Saw The Wall tour in the O2 a couple of years back and it was awesome.


  • Registered Users Posts: 21,805 ✭✭✭✭ endacl


    The wall live was stunning.

    Speaking of which, dave gilmour's solo spot in London. Years in the making. Rumours rife for months beforehand. Will he? Won't he? Speculators speckled. Pundits punned. Musos mused... The finest gear, equipment, and tech support available to any musician ever. He appears on top if the wall to unleash the first solo from comfortably numb and.....


    .... Somebody forgot to tune his guitar! WTF?!?

    Was watching that again on Pink Floyd.com and on the behind the scenes bit even Roger looked a bit bemused by the sounds coming from Dave's guitar,.wasn't one of his best efforts.

    Two seperate bands. The lead guitarist and leader of Brit Floyd was a founder member and lead guitarist with Aussie Floyd.
    I think they split over musical differences.

    This song blew my mind the first time I heard it

    You'd have to wonder what David was up to there wouldn't ya?

    In years to come we might find out he just sabotaged that track as best he could lol

    Years ago whilst jarred I remember a very knowledgeable Floyd-Nut putting on a track by them that had crowd noise at the end from Anfield....

    Anyone help me with that or was I smoking something stronger that a B&H??!
