We Can’t Travel, but Music Can


Recommended Posts

Pink Floyd has released a 90 minute remastered version of their Pulse concert video to YouTube for the next 12 days. It was filmed at Earls Court in October 1994 during the Division Bell tour. Just watched it on my home theatre and the video is much cleaner than the grainy original version. Too bad they deleted some of the best tracks in this version, but then again, it’s free!

Thanks Jeff,

A great way to end a night.. I first heard Pink Floyd when my oldest boy won The Wall on a radio phone-in show. Initially I thought it was garbage but my son convinced me to put on a headset and listen to the entire album.........I was hooked......................... My favourites are The Wall, The Dark Side of the Moon, and The Final Cut.

My son-in-law gave me the PINK FLOYD DISCOVERY  collection , (14 albums) one Christmas and they are interesting and in IMO some good stuff and some rather weird stuff....Rather sad to see Syd Barrett leave the band . Lots of internal turmoil in the group but they did produce some memorable music....

Glad you enjoyed it, Kip! Opening a concert with the entire Dark Side album was pretty cool.

My son just told me that next Friday they’ll be posting their 1972 concert from the old Roman amphitheater at Pompeii.

Great topic Jeff. Trying to do the same with my band mates but Zoom has some audio/visual issues. Videos such as this one require hours of editing to sync it all together.  

Regarding Robbie Robertson, the documentary on ‘The Band’ called ‘Once Were Brothers’ is worth watching.

Perhaps I’m not getting enough fresh air! Remind me who Nick is? 

Nick Mason of Pink Floyd. Look for the opening of “Time” - 3rd track. He has more toms in that kit than most music stores keep in stock.

Okay thanks. Tuned in now. Didn’t he write some of their hit songs? 

My current gear setup. Last time I saw it!

Nick was only responsible for a couple of songs that he composed, one of which was "Time"...and I can't remember the other one. I believe he wrote other stuff but not particularly for PF.

He did, however, collaborate with the other band members on many FLOYD songs.

That was really good! I don't recognize most of the artists on that one, but that list at the end has motivated me to learn more about them. I did get a kick out of Taylor Hawkins using a lava lamp as a percussion instrument. :)

I love what Post Modern Jukebox does with contemporary music.  Some of is is absolutely spectacular

The Stay Home Live Lounge stuff  and similar that is coming out during this time is great as well.  Some of the collaborations are excellent,
