     time to meet    
 ještě nevím 
Did you know that when playing Money at the Live 8 gig, Roger Waters and Nick Mason did not quite meet rhythmically? The mistakes can be heard in the live broadcast footage and they have been retouched later. Did you know that the song Have A Cigar from the Wish You Were Here album is sung by Roy Harper of HQ? Did you know that in the song Madmoiselle Nobs on the Live At Pompeii DVD, Richard Wright’s greyhound can be heard howling?

A re-release of The Madcap Laughs, Barrett and Opel with bonus tracks. There was a beautiful colourful booklet in the box.
It is probably a complete collection of all the solo material Syd and his friends ever recorded and is preserved until now (most of the foiled takes were deleted immediately after their authors realized they could not be used).
„Take X“ means the serial number of the take. The same song was recorded many times and then the best take was chosen (although not always the way the producers, mainly David Gilmour) , wished)..
Another interesting thing about the unfinished takes is that they include authentic conversations and comments of the sound engineers and musicians.  Back
