Roger Waters - The Lockdown Sessions Print E-mail
Written by Matt   
Saturday, 10 December 2022

Roger Waters - The Lockdown SessionsAvailable now through a variety of download and streaming services is a new release from Roger Waters - The Lockdown Sessions.

The album consists of six songs, and runs for 39 and a half minutes. At the moment, there is no confirmation that there will be a physical release of this, but should this change we will of course let you know.

The tracks on the album are Mother, Two Suns In The Sunset, Vera, The Gunner's Dream, The Bravery Of Being Out Of Range, and Comfortably Numb 2022.

Roger explained that he was going to do an album of unusual encores, but then lockdown struck.

"Our Us and Them Tour lasted three years... At every gig we did an encore after the main show closed with Comfortably Numb… the encore was always Mother... I can't remember why I decided to start doing other songs?... Anyway, at some point after the end of the tour… I started thinking, "It could make an interesting album, all those encores"… "The Encores". "Yeah, has a nice ring to it!" Then…I'm in England doing the Ginger Baker tribute gig one Tuesday night at the Hammersmith Odeon with Eric Clapton and… the following Saturday marching from The Australian Embassy to Parliament Square to make a speech in support of Julian Assange, when bugger me, Covid…Schlummmm!

"For me it was Friday March 13th 2020. Lockdown! So much for the "Encores" project. Unless… We've tacked C. Numb on the end of the collection, as an appropriate exclamation point in closing this circle of love."

Below you can listen via Spotify, but the full list of available sources for this newly released music can be found through this link.

David Gilmour collaborates with Donovan for two tracks on new album Print E-mail

Donovan has released a collaboration with David Gilmour, Rock Me, ahead of next week's release of a new album, Gaelia. Variety.com is hosting the exclusive premiere of the music video, which is embedded below.

Donovan, the folk-rocker who rose to fame in the 1960s, told Variety how he came to have Gilmour on two tracks — the second of which is titled Lover O' Lover — for the new album.

Donovan told Variety: "David and I chatted about how he had bought my cottage in the '60s when I married Linda and moved on. Why, I asked? He said my album track Three Kingfishers, off my Sunshine Superman album of 1966, had launched him in a celestial music direction, and so when I was selling my cottage, where so many of my songs were written, he wanted to be in my creative space. Makes sense in a Floyd sort of way.

"David had already learned to fly (he wrote a song about it, too ) and flew himself in to Ireland for the session. David brought his guitar roadie, who set up two amps in the studio, handed David his pink Strat, and his unique signature sound enthralled us all."

The song can be streamed on all major DSPs through this link, and for those who want to have a physical version of the album, you can get this unsigned, signed, and signed and dedicated, through Donovan's website.

 
Roger Waters releases new version of Comfortably Numb Print E-mail

Friday, 18 November 2022

With the hiatus between his 2022 dates in the US, Canada and Mexico, and the European tour of 2023, Roger Waters has just released a new version of Comfortably Numb.

According to the press release, "Comfortably Numb 2022" was recorded during the This Is Not A Drill North American tour and was produced by Waters and Gus Seyffert. Appearing on the track are Waters – Vocals; Seyffert - Bass, Synth, Percussion, Vocals; Joey Waronker – Drums; Dave Kilminster – Vocals; Jonathan Wilson – Harmonium, Synth, Guitar and Vocals; Jon Carin – Synth, Vocals; Shanay Johnson – Vocals; Amanda Belair – Vocals; Robert Walter – Organ/Piano; Nigel Godrich – Strings, amp and backing vocals from Roger Waters The Wall Sessions.

Here's how Waters describes it: "Before lockdown I had been working on a demo of a new version of Comfortably Numb as an opener to our new show This Is Not A Drill. I pitched it a whole step down, in A Minor, to make it darker and arranged it with no solos, except over the outro, where there is a heartrendingly beautiful vocal solo from one of our new sisters Shanay Johnson.

"It's intended as a wakeup call, and a bridge towards a kinder future with more talking to strangers, either in "The Bar" or just "Passing in the Street" and less slaughter "In Some Foreign Field." Here it is. Love R. The video is by Sean Evans. The mix is by Gus Seyffert."

Below is the YouTube version of the video; to watch or listen to it elsewhere, including the ability to download the audio, visit rogerwaters.lnk.to/comfortably-numb-2022.

 
Pink Floyd's The Dark Side Of The Moon collectors' book announced Print E-mail

Thursday, 17 November 2022

Pink Floyd - Any Colour You Like: The Dark Side Of The Moon on VinylOrders are now being taken for the latest limited edition book from our good friends at Floydstuff.com, which sounds like another essential item for the Floydian bookshelves, particularly for those who have a decent Pink Floyd record collection, and who are looking to build it. Some of you, we know, concentrate on specific aspects of the band's career, so this might be ideal for some of you.

Pink Floyd - Any Colour You Like: The Dark Side Of The Moon on Vinyl - an English language, 176 pages in full-colour, printed on heavyweight 170gms paper (22x22cm) book, will be published on March 1st, 2023, to coincide with the 50th anniversary month of the band's best-known album. The book is signed, numbered and limited to 500 copies only.

The publishers say: "Any Colour You Like – The Dark Side Of The Moon On Vinyl is the result of Stefano Tarquini's lifelong quest and gathers together the 700 currently known variations of Pink Floyd's masterpiece on record. They are all there, from the first March 1973 UK edition with solid blue prism labels, to the most obscure pressings from Nicaragua and Mozambique and everything in between.

"Each country has its entry with all known releases – test pressings, promotional copies, stock copies and mispressings – clearly arranged in chronological order with all necessary specifications, and complemented by a thousand images of labels and packaging details. The book deliberately refrains from a valuation of the various pressings as nothing is more subjective and volatile than the value of records.

"Author Stefano Tarquini, Mr Pinky as he is lovingly known, has spent a major part of his life collecting records by Pink Floyd. His eye for detail and knowledge of the band's official output on vinyl since 1967 makes him a grateful source of information for fellow collectors and countless publications in Italy and all over the world. He is the founder of the Italian collectors club The Lunatics and has curated various online resources dedicated to the band including the Mr Pinky Discography."

All copies pre-ordered from Floydstuff.com come with a tote bag and author-signed coaster as long as stock lasts. Previous titles from this publisher have been excellent, and have sold out quickly, so if you fancy securing a copy, we suggest you do so soon.
