Actually Sleeper, just listened to Fat Old Sun...pretty sweet. I'd probably enjoy older Floyd, I really never got into pre-Dark Side of the Moon Floyd. I just like to ruffle some of you classic rock focker's feathers from time to time.

I listen to an ecclectic assortment of music. Radiohead comes to mind, who I believe are heavily influenced by The Floyd. Morning Bell comes to mind:

Love em,

Breathe
(Waters, Gilmour, Wright) 2:44

Breathe, breathe in the air.
Don't be afraid to care.
Leave but don't leave me.
Look around and choose your own ground.

Long you live and high you fly
And smiles you'll give and tears you'll cry
And all you touch and all you see
Is all your life will ever be.

Run, rabbit run.
Dig that hole, forget the sun,
And when at last the work is done
Don't sit down it's time to dig another one.

For long you live and high you fly
But only if you ride the tide
And balanced on the biggest wave
You race towards an early grave.

My first real immersion to Pink Floyd was in my first year of college, sitting with a room full of people watching The Wall. I hadn't listened to Pink Floyd at all before that.

That thing blew my mind. After it was over, I just sat there speechless. I didn't want to be in that room full of people in such a vulnerable state.

Over time, David Gilmour has come to be one of my top guitar-playing influences.

Prog Rock will never die. It is the music aficionados's and the real musician's choice of music.

It's deep great sounding and very complex music that can only be played by the best musicians, and lyrics that are incredibly deep and spiritual to match the music. It takes you to another world.

Jeff Bosson and I used to have a tradition of looking at climbing or mountaineering slides, only to the music of one group, Pink Floyd. After Jeff's untimely death, I have somehow hung on to some portion of what was among the best friendships I have ever enjoyed, by listening to Pink Floyd.
I guess that could also be labeled as some form of mental disorder...

All of Dark Side of the Moon-can't even distinguish what is best off that, it's all amazing-but maybe Us and Them, I really like the female vocalist in that.

Listening to "The Wall" was a cathartic experience that helped me get through my divorce... I kept listening to "One of my turns", "Don't leave me now", "another brick in the wall 3" and "goodbye cruel world", "Hey you" Helpful to listen to something that exactly matches your mood.

Love the Floyd! Brilliant musicians and lyricists.

I just remembered my *real* first experience with Pink Floyd, well before college. I didn't have any exposure to them after this incident until college.

I was probably in junior high, baby-sitting some smaller kids who were asleep. Perusing their parents' record collection, I was intrigued by the prism and rainbow. Put on Dark Side of Moon, and I lay on the couch alone and transfixed. I don't know how long I listened to the record skipping at the end, thinking it was part of some heartbeat trance.

Edit:
I didn't want to soil the Rush Appreciation thread, so adding this here. I must confess, Rush just doesn't solicit any emotional reaction from me. I've tried at different times over the years (including from links in their appreciation thread), but it just doesn't do anything for me!

Well, here's some synchronicity:



“Remember when you were young… You shone like the sun.” Four thousand light years away in the constellation of Serpens, a millisecond pulsar binary is pounding out its heartbeat. Meanwhile an international research team of scientists from Australia, Germany, Italy, the UK and the USA, including Prof. Michael Kramer from Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, German are listening in. Utilizing the 64-m radio telescope in Parkes, Australia, the team made a rather amazing discovery. The companion star could very well be an ultra-low mass carbon white dwarf… one that’s transformed itself into a planet made of pure diamond.

I like to separately consider guitar players in terms of their technical prowess and the feeling/impact of their playing. Technical prowess is a more straight-forward thing to compare, but the feeling/impact is a very subjective thing.

For me, Gilmour is tops for the feeling/impact of playing, with Mark Knopfler a close second. Santa and Clapton are up there close, and are the best in their respective sub-genres (of course from the perspective of my own preferences). Derek Trucks is needs to fit in there somewhere very high, sometimes #1 or #2 if I'm in the right mood.

Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Eric Johnson, Yngwie Malmsteen, and most of the Guitar Player Magazine coverboys have amazingly honed technical skills but their method of musical expression leaves me cold and unsatisfied. I can intellectually appreciate how difficult something is to play, but that is about the extent of the value for me if the feeling/impact is not there.

The Pink Floyd, incidentally, invented the 'Ambient Music' genre; for those who don't already know that....

WTF?? Not sure I agree with that assessment.


Gilmore has excellent chops, obviously. And Amazing soul to go along with it all.

But there are so many excellent musicians, to say one is the best, it's like saying who is the best climber. No competition, or person, is going to be able to make that decision.

Hendrix, making his guitar talk on Hey Baby and various other cuts. His ability to hit the notes, and to pause in the right spots, yeah, he understood that. I have a track of his rhythm on "Have You Ever Been to Electric Ladyland". If you didn't know what cut that was from, you'd have a hard time figuring it out! Too bad he only made 3 1/2 albums in a little over 4 years...

I saw PF twice, once in 1970 at the Santa Monica Civic. This was right after they had released Meddle. The venue only held 5K people, so the atmosphere was pretty intimate. The next time was in 72 at the Hollywood Bowl where they performed Dark Side of the Moon for the first time iirc. Both times were pretty surreal, not to mention highly "electric"

This post immediately got my attention. It's been a big production month at Fish Products..... we started many a day with the fantastic 25:48 minute Medley remix by The Orb. All your favorites some with a funky groove just make you hungry for more.

PF classics, the Orb remixes and don't forget about the London Philharmonic Orchestra...we don't discriminate....they're all just too good!

In triple backup our iTunes library for PF is a non-stop play of 155 songs taking a full 15:09:15 minutes. When the last song plays we shut 'er down. But as you all know.....the show must go on.

Pink Floyd is like that- generations thinking it is about drugs or drug music..when it is in fact deeper than anything I have ever studied

Absolutely.

It may be a lie, but I've been told Gilmour has said that he only tripped once.

The music is not about drugs, rather the lyrics are metaphors.
Stoners confuse things too easily.

As far as Syd, there were almost certainly some preexisting mental health issues; the overindulgence seems to have edged him off a jib when he was probably bound to peel anyway. Seen that happen before, pretty easy to get causes and effects switched around.

I took the boys (Labs 11 yrs and 4 months) for a walk on a breezy Tahoe afternoon. They romped and sniffed while I listened to Dark Side of the Moon. The lyrics juxtaposed with watching Monty limping along with his arthritis and Huxley running circles around us with a pup's boundless energy was very thought provoking. Even though they are only able to be with us for a short while, dogs sure don't fixate on "Time" - getting old or mortality. They go after it every day to their limit. Seems to be a message in all of that.

All - Have a Happy and Safe Weekend and go after it a bit. Or, engage in the other favorite Labrador pastime - snoozing under the "Fat Old Sun."

I used to be way into them in the late 60s and early to mid 70s. The Wall was okay, but I felt it was the beginning of the end. I've seen them in concert many times. Always an awesome show!
The gong bursting into flames and Waters playing slide bass was always cool. You didn't really need drugs for it to be good, like you did for the Grateful Dead, but a mega dose of LSD and some weed did enhance things!

TRIXIE records #CUD-382

The record has never been played and is absolutely A+ mint condition.
I don't know if it is bad that I never listened to it, or it is good that it stayed totally mint.

To answer S.Leepers question, I am not sure what is my most valuable record that I have. I stopped collecting records 20+ years ago when I started collecting climbing gear. I was/am totally a Hendrix freak and have over 150+ different Hendrix albums. Plus many rare Led Zeppelins and many hundreds of other artists records. I am not sure what the value of these records are, but probably some of my Hendrix albums will draw a pretty penny.

The postcards and postcard size sticker are around 20+ years old.

At first I recoiled when I first heard the Barret stuff.


Heh heh, I've had the same reaction! I was saying to myself, "Corporal Clegg, WTF!"

For a long time I've been content with Dark Side of the Moon, The Wall, Pulse, and Delicate Sound of Thunder. And I recently bought Saucerful of Secrets. But it's growing on me. I was instantly taken with Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun. It will take a while for me to dig into the other stuff. I recently bought Relics and Atom Heart Mother and Meddle and Obscured by the Clouds

So, I tried a while back to put some Floyd on my computer via iTunes. Fail. Gilmour had pulled the music over a contract dispute.

NOW, I find that all of the albums are back, and get this, remastered by Gilmour. Sick.

I just downloaded Animals and Meddle, my two favorite albums, and they sound great. Almost as good as fresh wax.

Loving on the Pink Floyd right now.

I can't count how many many times I've listened to The Wall, but I was just inspired to put it on and I'm in the midst of listening to it again.

I watched a movie tonight, "The Wave," about an experiment in a Palo Alto classroom in 1967, designed to answer the question about how so many people in Germany in the 1930s and 40s could ignore the deaths of millions of people around them.

I've always been drawn to the adult child issues and the impact on relationships and resultant behavior addressed in the album, and not really latched onto the significance of the Nazi symbolism. Now there's this wave of recognition washing over me, how the spectrum of personal dynamics and bricks in the individual wall are projected across all of society in the collective wall and how a fascist revolution can occur.


There are so many layers of genius wrapped into the concept and composition of The Wall, so many interwoven links from the micro to the macro, it's like the combined force of human knowledge were channeled into a lightning bolt that sparked Roger Waters' brain. Just a miraculous achievement of human creativity. I'm in awe and getting all verklempt at the moment.

(wipes a tear)

And then there's the whole added irony of the sold-out performances and rabid fans just reinforcing the concept! Hell, I want to be one of them again. The concerts, including the audiences, are performance art that continues to reinforce the points of the original compositions. That's tapped in pretty deep to a fundamental pulse of humanity.

Riley, where are you seeing the show? I rejected the prices on basic principle before, but I may be willing to dig deep and spend for the experience.

All during my years of single father-dom, during countless road trips across the country, I subjected my two young sons to endless hours of Pink Floyd on the car stereo.
They loved singing loudly We Don't Need No Education...

My oldest at age 27 has become, to my extreme satisfaction, a huge Floyd aficionado.
A year ago last November, he surprised me one evening with spur of the moment tickets to "The Wall" at Los Angeles' Staples Center.

It's an awe-inspiring show. Waters voice has perhaps lost some range through the years, but the overall impact of such a huge arena show is not diminished. If you're a true fan and it's available in your city, you owe it to yourself to witness this event.

OK, anyone who's up for the San Francisco show on May 11?
This seems like the type of experience that is best shared, and I'm not sure I can recruit financially solvent die hard fans from my local friend circle.

Here is the price range:
US $30.00 - US $255.00
US $30.00 Ticket + US $10.50 Fees = US $40.50 US
$255.00 Ticket + US $26.00 Fees = US $281.00
VIP packages with the buffet, shirt, schwag, and front/center seats: $600
VIP packages minus the buffet and almost front/center seats: $425

I'm having a mini-heart-attack over the prices, haven't gone to a big production concert in years, but trying to tell myself this is special.

It's not the legal entity Pink Floyd lead by David Gilmour. I did a little research to make sure it's not just Roger Waters with a guitar and a chair and a microphone... Although I did see Neil Young like that years back and it was an exceptionally good performance that I was happy to pay for.

Roger Waters has got a good backing band and a pretty elaborate theatrical production going with the whole thing. If you are ok with spoiling the surprise of the experience, you can check out the details on Wikipedia (until SOPA/PIPA re-emerges!)

When Wright passed, the Floyd passed. No way can they replace him onstage. He was an incredible musician.

I have this old jumping buddy who looks exactly like Gilmour. He also looks like the drummer for U2. My bro got more nooky than Wilt Chamberlin.

If you look at all old music, Pink Floyd still holds up. They don't sound like any other band. Period. If they came out today it would still sound new.

Has anyone watched the "Dark side" playing against the "Wizard of Oz"....Interesting, (probably better with Nutmeg or Fungus) but maybe a little contrived.(You would probably only be able to get a straight answer to this Myth if you asked Alan Parsons.) Try it it out there, on utube. 40 years for dark side, I still think Welcome to the machine was better. Saw floyd in Oakland....80's can't quite remember but a solid show. They ran the pig (inflatable) up and everything. Missed the wall tour, heard the few shows they did were brilliant, but the production cost kept it to only about 5 shows ( if memory serves me Wright( hey,hey,hey).
