DEAD LINKS

NOTE : DEAD LINKS
We'd like to thank everyone for preventing us of dead links. For the moment, we are note able to re-up them.

Feel free to keep on preventing us of those dead links. We will update them when we (I and Jeb-E-Diah) have more time to (understand : from september). Some of them will be partially or completely repacked considering albums which would have been issued thereafter and surely with new and improved artworks.

Stay tuned !

A SAUCER FULL OF SECRETS (VAC015)

VARIOUS ARTISTS
A SAUCER FULL OF SECRETS

Behind this Title hides the second part of my Pink Floyd Tribute Project. This second one deals with Floyd's A Saucerful Of Secrets. This was much uneasier to gather cover version of that second album than for the first. The most difficult was unsurprisely Wright's Remember A Day. Maybe the greatest song of the album (difficult to decide when you listen to the last part of the eponymous track or to Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun), but nearly never got covered ! The only two versions I found were recorded since Rick's death and between a poor dance remix and Gilmour's version on the BBC the decision was fast. Only one question : Is a Pink Floyd song sung by Dave Gilmour a Pink Floyd cover ? The answer is Yes because at the time R.a.D. was recorded, Gilmour was not yet in the band...


Extracts :
In The Woods : Let There Be More Light

Hipi : Julia Dream

I was always a big fan of early PF but generally don't like tribune discs of cover versions. I did enjoy this and your Piper collection because not only were the songs well done but many interpreted the original songs rather than just sounding like copies. Good work on the covers art too. Thanks,
Dave

Thank you for this, a true creative act on your part - this is the mark of a true music site that extends the original work
