  1. Can’t wait to check this out!
    But is it really better than screening the Wizard of Oz and dropping the needle on the third roar of the lion?

  2. Very nice. Years later, I saw the “Animals” tour, whose animations and physical aspects like the inflatable pig and lighting tricks were far more sophisticated. I got an added welcome dose of it at a Roger Waters solo concert. Its interesting to see the timeline of how they pushed the envelope.

  3. Oh, Pink Floyd… One of the greatest groups of all time. Always pushing the envelope and thinking outside of the box. In my opinion, they are still the only band with the exception of Radiohead (nearly 40 years later) who were really successful in incorporating electronic music with rock. Still blows my mind that they did Dark Side and Meddle and Wish You Were Here in the early to mid 70′s. Just timeless music and still so different from anything else to ever exist before or after the fact. Geniuses… All of them.

      I agree. Nick Mason has a great book, “Inside Out: A Personal History of Pink Floyd” that seems to capture a lot of the ups and downs. I was struck by the incredibly audience support Pink Floyd received in the early days. Mason has a quote from Jenny Fabian (the groupie) and it’s really interesting and sad, comparing the very early days of passionate audience involvement and participation, to the later days, when the audience became more distant and mostly observed, more than participated. It seems to me that Pink Floyd really benefited from those early years, the audience involvement and participation days. I don’t know if those kinds of early & involved, participating, audiences exist for any bands now.
