Biography

In the early 1960s, a bunch of boys from Cambridge began jamming together, and out of those encounters were born the early incarnations of Pink Floyd. More than 40 years and 150 million album sales later, the band headlined the biggest global music event in history – Live 8 – and was inducted into the UK Music Hall of Fame. You could say the Floyd has staying power.

Product Description

Product Description

DELUXE CD LONG BOX set-EAN 724352356225

Amazon.co.uk

Formed in the 60s, Pink Floyd have become one of the biggest bands in the world, propelled by their psychedelic, theatrical rock. The Pink Floyd sound is rock & roll on a grand scale, the stuff of enormous stadiums, light shows, concept albums and the concert as a live "experience"--much more than just another gig. Is There Anybody Out There? is a live version of Pink Floyd's most adventurous album, the multi-million selling rock opera The Wall, recorded at a series of concerts held at London's Earl's Court in 1980-81. Available for the first time, this digitally remastered, double CD comes in a limited edition, 64-page hardback book, with two recordings that were previously unavailable on the studio version of The Wall. --Ted Kord

5.0 out of 5 stars Imagine The Wall but 20 times better... 27 Mar 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The first thing I should say about this album is that you shouldn't buy it unless you already own or are familiar with The Wall (the album or the film), you really need to be fully aware of what the studio version is like before you can fully appreciate "Is there Anybody Out there?"
What can I say, I thought it would be impossible to improve on the original The Wall, but this album improves on it by miles. The version of In The Flesh? is a great example of live Floyd at their best, the song starts by interrupting MC Atmos who opens the show, to a huge cheer from the crowd (in the actual performance, the band played in the background while the "surrogate band" stood out front and imitated their parts with masks of the band!).
The live versions of Another Brick...pt 1., Mother, Run Like Hell and Goodbye Blue Sky are all great improvements on the originals, with The Floyd playing with superb accuracy and adding where they can.
My two personal favourites on this live feast of an album are Comfortably Numb and the quite bizarre Empty Spaces.
Comfortably Numb was a brilliant musical concoction of David Gilmour's, and he sings the chorus beautifully and the orchestral that play alongside are excuted very well, but the real highlight of this album is when David Gilmour stands up on top of The Wall (that was built between the band and the audience during the performance) and pulls of the excellent first solo from Comfortably, you can almost feel his pride as he plays that last note...
As for Empty Spaces, this version was never featured on the original album but did feature on the film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surely the best album ever made? 10 Sep 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
With the release of this, the third incarnation of The Wall, Pink Floyd have probably ensured that the album will prove to be even more enduring than it already has done over the past twenty years. The book that comes with it proved to be very interesting, as much for what it said about those people involved in the show as the show itself. The album is, as has been suggested already in these reviews, possibly the most atmospheric recording ever, and if you close your eyes and listen very hard, you can quite easily fool yourself that you might be there. I was born three years after Floyd played The Wall at Earl's Court for the last time, but how I wish the band as they now stand would join up with the old members who formed the four-piece at the time and play it one last time so that the new generation of music fans can learn what a real live show is like! I'd give this far more than five stars if I could, but a rating cannot truly express the quality and overall stunning ability of this album to be all things to all people. Nothing short of genius.

5.0 out of 5 stars The first gig I ever went to.... 12 Aug 2004
Format:Audio CD
...was Floyd playing The Wall live @ Earl's Court. Difficult to follow really. Dave Gilmour's solo on Comfortably Numb had most of us scraping our brains up off the floor. I realised that this wasn't just a concept album but an entire musical which made a lot more sense when seen live.What has amazed me about this album is how well it captures both the slick professionalism of the band and the raw energy of live performance.Listening to it I feel almost as exihilarated as after the concert (though thankfully not as sweaty). If you were there you have to get this just to remind yourself of a great evening; If you weren't it's worth getting to remind yourself what a great band Floyd were in their heyday.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great quality Floyd live outing 31 Jan 2009
By Smitty Werbenjaegermanjensen (real name) TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
I got this when it came out and was not fussed with it at all. I thought that, compared to bootlegs of the full unedited shows, it was lacking in spark/brio/excitement and was a bit lifeless.

Well time has moved on, I have changed the hifi and here I am thrashing my original opinion in a public forum. I think this is a tremendous live recording. When compared to the Delicate Sound of Thunder it holds ground with ease. Both sound like they were recorded the same night. It does not have the benefit of the Q Sound mix of PULSE, but that is really a minor quibble.

Everything has been wonderfully and faithfully recorded and is present in the mix. It is impossible to hear the edits or notice any changes in sound quality or instrument levels despite being made up from several concerts.
What really separates this from the rest of the live albums out there is the amazing range of musical styles and moods covered by the band and the various additonal musicians brought along to flesh it all out. This is surely as culturally acceptable as any of the supposedly grand works offered by the classical composers.

I can't wait to see the Australian Pink Floyd get stuck into their version of this as they tour the UK in the very near future. If the Ulster Orchestra can play Beethovens Fifth to acclaim then I reckon it is equally valid that the Oz Floyd recreate this masterpiece.

Kudos to all of those involved. A mighty piece of art/music/theatre! Live Darkside anyone??? The tapes must be out there....

Fully recommended.
