Willie Nelson joined Ray Price's Cherokee Cowboys in 1961, the first step in a lifelong friendship between the two men. From that point on, the pair never fell out of touch. At the height of his superstardom in 1980, Nelson cut a duet album with Price called San Antonio Rose, the first of three joint efforts they'd cut over the years. Whenever the pair got together, they'd sing the old songs, Western swing standards and honky tonk classics from the '50s and '60s – the songs that form the core of For the Good Times: A Tribute to Ray Price, a salute Willie delivered three years after Price's 2013 death.
For this tribute album, 21 bands from all continents have gathered and have recorded their favorite Pink Floyd songs. All these tracks are much more than just a copy of the original, each band has added its own unique spirit to give the songs a totally new perspective. Besides the all-time classics such as 'Another Brick In The Wall', 'High Hopes', 'Wish You Were Here', 'Comfortably Numb' and 'Shine On You Crazy Diamond', the album also contains some of the earlier more psychedelic songs from the band's first decade, e.g. 'Interstellar Overdrive' and 'One Of These Days'.
Gothic and industrial superstars bring a whole new level of psychedelic spookiness to the songs of Pink Floyd, featuring performances by Nik Turner (of Hawkwind), Chrome, Psychic TV, Spahn Ranch and more!
