Here’s a gig I’ve been meaning to feature for quite sometime. This is a Westwood One radio broadcast of Roger’s 1985 Pros And Cons. This is not the show/tour with Eric Clapton; but if you want to hear that, check out this episode. The sound of this gig from Radio City Music Hall is really amazing. Much better than most versions out there and I explain why in the podcast. Here’s the playlist. Enjoy!
Most of you have already seen or listened to some of Nick’s recent gigs but not all doctored up in a nice podcast like this. If you haven’t heard any of it yet, you’re in for a real treat! As I listen, I close my eyes and imagine this is the closest thing to what it must of been like to hear/see Pink Floyd in 1967. Those of you who went, were incredibly fortunate. I wish I was there. Here’s the playlist. Enjoy! Photo: Peter Chow
From the 2016 European Capital of Culture, Wroclaw Poland, live from Freedom Square, in front of the National Forum of Music, Mr. Gilmour kicks off the 4th leg of his Rattle That Lock Tour, 25th June 2016. Joined by Polish jazz pianist Leszek Możdżer, and the NFM Filharmonia Wrocławska Orchestra conducted by Zbigniew Preisner. Here’s the playlist Enjoy!
Imagine you and only a dozen other people in a large film studio, all sitting on plastic garden chairs watching Roger and his band rehearse for an upcoming tour. This podcast will make imagining that a lot easier. “In The Flesh” World tour rehearsals at Bray Studios in Windsor, U.K., 22 February 2002. Here’s the playlist
For this podcast, practice makes perfect! It’s very similar to a previous podcast I did 10 years ago called “Soundcheck” (which makes for a great companion to this edition of brain damage) anyway… this time, its a complete 1994 soundcheck! When I was going through stuff, I was surprised that I never featured this entire rehearsal before. I’ve only played a few bits and pieces. So… why not. All doctored up for your ears! A rare glimpse into very laid back Pink Floyd rehearsal. Here’s the playlist.
It’s more fun if you go straight to the podcast and listen. See if you can put it together without reading this description. If you want it all explained, then keep reading. This podcast was a difficult one to put together. I could of gone in so many different directions with songs that mentioned guns, knives and bombs. Instead it became militaristic with “a hint” of war in the air. It was after all a huge part of Pink Floyd’s music, given the effects it had on Roger and growing up in post WWII UK. Sit in your bunker and enjoy! Here’s the playlist.
Brain Damage, the definitive Pink Floyd radio show enters it’s 13th year with a great concert from Floyd’s 1973 Dark Side of The Moon North American Tour. Live from the Maple Leaf in Toronto Canada eh. All doctored up as best I can. Please leave your comments. Thanks for listening and a BIG THANK YOU to those who made it possible for me to do what I do. Here’s the playlist.
Finally I got to do what I’ve been wanting to do for a long time. The first half of this podcast is what it would sound like if Roger had actually done a full Animals set. Its a fun listen. The second half is David in Brazil. Here’s the playlist. Thank you for listing and for your support throughout the year. Cheers!
FoH is for Front of House. This podcast is chuck full of goodies. Roger breaks out three new songs and David adds a guitar solo! For this episode, we go back to the desert for a crystal clear, front of house recording of Roger’s first weekend performance at Desert Trip, Empire Polo Grounds Indio, California 9. October 2016. It’s a long one. Here’s the playlist
