BBC seeking The Dark Side of the Moon Print E-mail

The People's History of PopThe BBC are currently working on a new television series, The People's History of Pop, which is planned to be aired hopefully next year. They've been in touch with us, and they are after your help:

"Calling all Dark Side of the Moon fans, we'd love to hear from you. What does the album mean to you? When did you first hear it? Did you see Pink Floyd live on the Dark Side of the Moon Tour?

"BBC Music is crowd-sourcing fans' memories and archives from over 50 years of British rock and pop music for a new series to be broadcast on BBC Four called The People's History of Pop. If you've been inspired by Pink Floyd and still have memorabilia in your attic, under your bed or in the recesses of your computer, please dig it out and go to to take part. Thank you"

BBC music series tend to be well put-together and researched, and drawing in the thoughts and memorabilia of the fans is an interesting twist to an established format. So, if you have anything of interest, or wish to share your views on the album, please let the BBC know through their dedicated website...

Roger Waters The Wall: CD and vinyl soundtrackIn addition to the previously announced DVD and Blu-ray versions of Roger Waters The Wall, there was mention of a soundtrack release. Today, it has been confirmed that audio versions will be released on November 20th via Columbia/Legacy Recordings.

The soundtrack will be hitting stores - physical and virtual - as a double CD, a triple vinyl LP, and digitally, and features tracks taken from various concert performances. It is produced by Nigel Godrich, best known for his work with Radiohead, Beck, and Paul McCartney. Those of you who saw the recent cinema screenings of Roger Waters The Wall will be aware of the quality of the sound mix, and this was done by Nigel for the film soundtrack too.

Intriguingly, Roger's Facebook page have also revealed something called The Ultimate Edition - which they also call 'the super deluxe' - but note that information on this is to be announced next watch this space!

CD Disc 1:

In the Flesh? / The Thin Ice / Another Brick in the Wall, Pt. 1 / The Happiest Days of Our Lives / Another Brick in the Wall, Pt. 2 / The Ballad of Jean Charles de Menezes / Mother / Goodbye Blue Sky / Empty Spaces / What Shall We Do Now? / Young Lust / One of My Turns / Don't Leave Me Now / Another Brick in the Wall, Pt. 3 / Last Few Bricks / Goodbye Cruel World

CD Disc 2:
Hey You / Is There Anybody Out There? / Nobody Home / Vera / Bring the Boys Back Home / Comfortably Numb / The Show Must Go On / In The Flesh / Run Like Hell / Waiting for the Worms / Stop / The Trial / Outside the Wall

The 3-LP vinyl runs from In The Flesh? to What Shall We Do Now? as record one, record two runs from Young Lust to Bring The Boys Back Home, and record three runs from Comfortably Numb through to the conclusion of the concert. Roger's website does warn that there may be a delay to the arrival of the vinyl - it might be later than November 20th.

David Gilmour's On An Island - limited 180gram vinyl LP reissue in UK! Print E-mail

David Gilmour - On An Island - 180g heavyweight vinyl albumDavid Gilmour's third solo album, On An Island - which was released in 2006 - hit the number one spot on the UK album charts, and was certified platinum. At the time it came out, for a limited time you could get your hands on the album on a very nicely put together vinyl package, which included a large poster within its gatefold loveliness.

As is common with many such things, this edition quickly sold out in most places, and if you take a look around now, those offering decent quality examples of the album normally put a price of up to £200 for it. However, we have some great news for you!

This coming Friday, October 9th, a limited edition, 180 gram heavyweight vinyl reissue is taking place, and orders can be placed through this direct link for despatch on release. As yet we don't know if the reissue is presented in the same way as the original - i.e. with the gatefold sleeve, and large poster, but we suspect it will.

Roger Waters The Wall - expanded two-disc Blu-ray special edition

Just announced, on the day following the worldwide screening in selected cinemas of Roger Waters The Wall for one night only, is the long-awaiting home release of the movie. It is being released as a digital download, as a DVD, a Blu-ray, and a 2-disc Blu-ray special edition, on November 16th, 2015. The physical editions are now available to order through selected outlets, and we have details below of what each edition contains.

There is also an additional release: an album of the Roger Waters The Wall soundtrack is set for release later this year (although no exact date is specified) via Sony Music. We suspect that this will be the concert itself, rather than the film soundtrack which of course is intercut with Roger's moving road trip.

For those who weren't able to see it last night, Roger Waters The Wall, written and directed by Roger Waters and Sean Evans combines an immersive and undeniably epic concert experience of the classic Pink Floyd album, a road movie of Waters' reckoning with the past, and an anti-war protest film, highlighting the human cost of conflict. Roger said: "I'm glad that we have an opportunity to share the film with people on a wider scale. It has had a deep effect on my life; and I'm not the only one. This release provides an opportunity to remember all of our fallen loved ones."
