2011 "Why Pink Floyd?" Collector's Edition LP!
Rolling Stone 2015 Readers' Poll: The 10 Best Jam Bands: Pink Floyd Rated 9th!
One of the most acclaimed concept albums of all time, The Wall is renowned as Roger Waters' Rock Opera dealing with abandonment and personal isolation. Featuring the unique artwork of Gerald Scarfe, the album also yielded the US & UK No. 1 hit Another Brick In The Wall Pt2., and was subsequently adapted for cinema by Alan Parker featuring Bob Geldof in the lead role.
Since 1967 Pink Floyd have produced one of the most outstanding and enduring catalogues in the history of recorded music. The albums have been painstakingly remastered by James Guthrie (co-producer of The Wall). Artwork designed by long-time artwork collaborator Storm Thorgerson. As a part of their "Why Pink Floyd?" campaign, EMI has chosen to release three titles on collector's vinyl LP (throughout the year 2011 and into early 2012) including The Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, and The Wall. Look for more details to come!
"Pink Floyd's most elaborately theatrical album was inspired by their own success: the alienating enormity of their tours after The Dark Side of the Moon, which was when bassist-lyricist Roger Waters first hit upon the wall as a metaphor for isolation and rebellion. He finished a demo of the work by July 1978; the double album then took the band a year to make. Rock's ultimate self-pity opera, The Wall is also hypnotic in its indulgence: the totalitarian thunder of "In the Flesh?" the suicidal languor of "Comfortably Numb," the Brechtian drama of "The Trial." Rock-star hubris has never been more electrifying." The show goes on forever." - www.rollingstone.com
"Waters' attack on teachers who practice 'dark sarcasm in the classroom' was inspired by his own schoolmasters. 'The school I was at they were really like that," Waters said. "[All] they had to offer was their own bitterness and cynicism.' There are three versions of 'Another Brick' on The Wall, but 'Part 2' was the hit." - Rolling Stone
"Roger Waters based one of the saddest drug songs ever written [Comfortably Numb] on a sleazy Philadelphia doctor who injected him with tranquilizers before a gig when he was suffering from hepatitis. 'That was the longest two hours of my life,' Waters said. 'Trying to do a show when you can hardly lift your arm.' Arguably the greatest cover of 'Numb': Van Morrisons 1990 version from The Wall: Live in Berlin concert." - Rolling Stone
