Richard Thompson compared his bumpy marriage to Linda Thompson to a roller coaster named "the Wall of Death" and Pink picks up this carnivalesque thread, calling her troubled relationship with motocross star Carey Hart a Funhouse on her own entry into a long prestigious line of autobiographical divorce albums that stretches back to Blood on the Tracks. Naturally, Funhouse doesn't have any musical similarities with either Blood or Shoot Out the Lights, but Pink's divorce album is also emotionally different than either of these classics or Marvin Gaye's Here, My Dear…
Whatever changes have occurred in the galaxy of Acid Mothers Temple, the group has remained perpetually active. So in 2005, when various departures and line-up changes finally prompted group leader Kawabata Makoto to put the project Acid Mothers Temple and the Melting Paraiso U.F.O. on indefinite hiatus, the last thing to expect from him was prolonged silence. And true to form, Makoto quickly reloaded his supporting cast and unleashed his new "hellchild," the Cosmic Inferno, and continued to build upon what is already one of the most unruly catalogs in existence…
Pink Floyd were filmed in concert a number of times in the early 1970s, and as such footage goes, this was not the best performance nor the most dramatically shot. The show filmed at and broadcast by KQED public television in San Francisco in April 1970, for instance, had more compelling performances, and the more familiar scenes shot for the Live at Pompeii movie were certainly filmed with more cinematic flair. But if you're a serious Pink Floyd fan and want even more, this is certainly a satisfactory, professionally made, five-song, 50-minute concert film of an August 8, 1970 performance at the Saint Tropez Music Festival, originally done for broadcast on the French TV program Pop 2.
Watching The World Upon The Wall represents the silver debut of Pink Floyd’s June 16th, 1981 performance of The Wall at Earl’s Court in London, which was both the next to last of the tour as well as Roger Waters’ penultimate with the band (until the Live 8 reunion some 24 years later).
This is one of a number of quality Oil Well productions. All songs are complete with no noticeable flaws. 19 May 1972, Live at Earls Court Exhibition Hall, London, England.
This Bootleg is the awesome, excellent quality recording of The Dark Side of the Moon in it's entirety! There *are* bad edits between the tracks, but it doesn't matter too much, as the sound is great and the performance amazing. The last two bonus tracks are somewhat a disappointment because of the quality.
The first Pink Floyd show ever recorded, one of the two featuring Syd Barrett. This RoIO is of very important signification and features two very songs (Stoned Again, aka Stoned Alone, aka Stone rust) and Rush in A Million, as well as their rejected third single Scream Thy Last Scream. The recording has been heavily remastered because of the poor source, and though the lyrics are barily audible, Syd's guitar is very clear and omnipresent.
