I just saw March 6th as the release day for the WYWH SACD the other day. WooHoo! But the original release date for Pulse was in 2004. I'm about to pass out from holding my breath that long.

In reply to:

That is a HIGHLY dabatable statement.
Not saying it is necessarily wrong, just in question.




From what I have read, and what seems to be something of a consensus among headshrinkers who have been interviewed, is that Syd most likely had bipolar or schizophrenic tendencies and the massive amounts of psychedelic drugs he was ingesting merely accelerated the symptoms. Sounds reasonable. The fact is nobody really knows. I don't think he ever went in for real treatment and he never speaks publicly.

In reply to:

That pedal-driven instrument with the glass bowls was pretty neat.




I believe that is an Armonica. Allegedly it was invented by Ben Franklin, and is considered the first instrument invented in the US. The Armonica was "lost" for many decades until one was finally successfully recreated in 1982 (after Corning Glass and MIT failed to do so in the 1950s).

I have never heard them, but the Glass Orchestra of Canada performs on custom glass instruments, and still performs in Toronto.

Just got "On An Island", and so far its very good.It definitely has a "Floyd" feel to it, just maybe more relaxed.


I've been looking all over for the "Wish You Were Here" SACD but cant find it or any news about it.

I am hoping to get my copy of "On an Island" today as well.
As far as the WYWH SACD, it isn't out and all news of it has vanished, except for the blurb about it from last July at http://www.brain-damage.co.uk/.

I'm guessing that it has taken a backseat to the long awaited pulse release, which now seems official for September. Amazon's preorder price for $16 seems pretty good. Maybe after that, but who knows?

Listening to it now at work on my PC. Can't WAIT to get home and give it a listen on my new M60tis!!!

I am such a Floyd fan, but I also love ambient music, and thought it kind of ironic on the inside of back cover David makes mention to Steve O' Rourke 8)

The Pulse release coming up, that is a DVD, correct? I *had* the VHS of Pulse and Delicate Sound of Thunder, but my wife loaded them out, and I never got them back. No matter, would rather have DVDs if and when they are available.

Bray,

Where did you find "On An Island" locally? Showed the videos on the website to the wife (also a huge Floyd fan) and she said "Get that!"...

I went on down to Borders and got a copy of On an Island. So far im only on track 6 but overall seems pretty good. I never really cared much for Gilmour/floyd works after roger left but this one seems fine.

Although, i never really cared for what gilmour does with his voice.
