Rattle That Lock, Toronto

You recall the podcast from November, well it’s now David Gilmour’s turn at the Air Canada Centre!  Our friend Terry, who recorded Roger’s gig there also captured David’s first visit to Toronto in 10 years.  This time Terry (and his friend) provided me their master, high res audio so I could do my magic.  For this podcast, its a matrix recording from David’s first night in “Hollywood North.”  Hope you enjoy!  Here’s the playlist.  Image thanks to Ken Murphy.

Addendum

By now, hopefully you got The Later Years box set!  It’s fantastic but since the announcement of its release, it was clear there were some glaring omissions.  For this edition of Brain Damage I give you, what I think, should of been included. This podcast will make a nice companion.  Here’s the playlist!  Enjoy!  Happy Festivus, Merry/Happy Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, or Happy Kwanzaa!

Us + Them, Toronto

 


For this podcast, as the title would suggest, we go to Toronto’s Air Canada Centre for an excellent recording from Roger’s “Us + Them Tour” 2nd October 2017.  This particular recording, thanks to Terry, is previously un-circulated (I believe) and doctored up for super sound!

Starting the podcast off, is the 2019 remix of One Slip.  The pod caps with the remastered version of Run Like Hell from “Delicate Sound of Thunder”, also featured in the upcoming ”Later Years Box Set”, now due for release on 13, December.  Hope you enjoy!  Here’s the paylist!

The Later Years

If you’re as excited as I am about the new Pink Floyd box set than this podcast should hold you over until it drops on the 29th of November.  This podcast features a sample of that’s to come. Here’s the playlist!  Enjoy! And if you do, please be sure to leave a comment below or on the Facebook or Twitter fan pages.

Watching The World Upon The Wall

This edition of Brain Damage features Roger’s second to last gig with Pink Floyd before he left the band and it’s the first time I’ve featured a Wall concert from 1981, 16th of June to be exact.  Not sure what took me so long but this recording is excellent and perhaps the best from Earl’s Court.  Its all been doctored up to sound the best it can.  If you already have this recording, feel free to compare.  I think you’ll be pleased.  Hope you enjoy and if you do, please consider a small donation, thank you!  The playlist is fairly obvious but HERE it is anyway.  We start things off, however with Roger singing Wish You Were Here in London last week.  As always, thank you for the download.

Into Little Pieces

For this edition of Brain Damage, its Floyd live at The Sporto, 28 June, 1973.  This recording has been around for a while but this time it gets the doctored treatment… a little.  There’s a few flaws within the recording that even I can’t fix but not all is lost. I explain in the podcast.  Pink Floyd put on a gripping show and the recording is very good,  So here it is, flaws ‘n all!  Before however, I figure a nice 25 minute version of Shine On You Crazy Diamond would be fitting since The Sport gig is a diamond in the rough.  Hope you like.  Here’s the playlist

This Earthly Heaven

The idea for this edition of Brain Damage was inspired by David Gilmour’s decision to donate 21+ million dollars raised from selling his guitar collection to ClientEarth.  So I figure an Earth themed podcast would be cool.  Most of the tracks featured have something to do with Mother Earth or the environment.  Hope you enjoy.  Here’s the playlist!

As always, let me know what you think below or at my twitter or Facebook fan pages!  Consider a small donation?  Thank you!

David Gilmour’s Guitar Collection

I got myself a copy of “The David Gilmour Guitar Collection” catalogue/catalog (take your pick) and while/whilst (circle one) flipping through, the idea hit me.  A companion podcast! If you have a copy, you’ll enjoy listening as you read about the guitar your listening to. If you don’t have it, it’s still a great listen. Here’s the playlist!  Enjoy!

I’d love to know what you think!  Please leave a reply below and/or (there’s that select-a-word thing again) my twitter or Facebook fan page!  Consider a small donation?  Thank you!

UPDATE: You don’t need a hard copy of the catalogue. Christie’s has an interactive e-catalogue or you can download it here.

Full Circle

Nick Mason’s Saucerful of Secrets live at the Corn Exchange in Cambridge, UK a couple of weeks ago, 1st, May 2019.  It was a great concert in Pink Floyd’s home town and Nick’s first time playing in Cambridge since 1969! This was captured near the front, dead center with special thanks to Disputandum Productions who recorded it.  I was next to the mixing desk and its where I took the photo (above).  Where you there?  Here’s the playlist Enjoy

David’s “Meltdown”

David Gilmour was the featured artist for the 2001 Robert Wyatt Meltdown Festival and took the opportunity to strip things down and play semi-acoustic versions of classic Floyd songs.

This is the soundtrack from the DVD “David Gilmour in concert”, from the Royal Festival Hall in London, 22 June 2001.   Short and sweet… hope you enjoy!  Here’s the playlist.

As Cars Go By

Just like fixing a car, you run into a few snags and things sometimes take longer than planned.  Sorry for the delay on this, the latest installment of Brain Damage.  She’s fresh out of the shop and all tuned up. Go for a beat run and see how it feels.  Let me know what you think!  Here’s the playlist, but if you want to have a little fun guessing the songs from the lyrics, try this.

Same But Different

It would later become known as P.U.L.S.E. but before all that it was first aired here in the States as a Pay Per View event and later broadcast in the UK, on 15th of November 1994 on BBC1 and Radio One FM.  Lucky for us someone that night recorded it from their FM stereo receiver.

A big difference here is there’s no James Guthrie post production, so the sound isn’t as processed as the official video release of P.U.L.S.E. This has more of a raw, “feed from the desk” sound with the warmth of an FM broadcast.  So… Same but different.

Live and uncut from Earls Court, 20 October 1994.  Here’s the playlist.
