Chris Middleton Raise My Rent, Short and Sweet, No Way, I Can't Breathe Anymore, Mihalis, and There's No Way Out of Here are all lovely songs. The vocals and harmonies are spot on, and Raise My Rent has the definitive Gilmour guitar sound, before he used it on The ...
Grant L'Green What a fantastic album. "There is no boundary set but time, and yet you waste it still" "And never was there an answer, not without looking, without seeing" I could go on and on
Antonio Carrabs The best Glmour's solo-album with On an island; About face is a good album...but the last "Rattle that lock" is the worst( I did not buy it !!!) ...just my opinion!!!
Bernd Kunze i like this album, i saw him solo w mick ralphs in mannheim germany, amazing concert, theres no way out of here is my fav song, amazing title
David Nielsen Played this album all summer in student housing after my freshman year at UC San Diego. "There's no way out of here..." was played during D&D games, much to the consternation of the players. A very enjoyable soundtrack for that summer.

Over 70,000 fans attended this open-air festival on the island of Grün near Germersheim, Germany, in 1972, to see quite a diverse line-up. Pink Floyd performed on the 21st; some of the advertised acts didn't appear, others were unannounced, and the venue changed after this poster was printed...

Ingmar Waffenstrat The faces above humble pie, mariott has always been a better singer than rod stewart. He was the small faces.
Iain McCorquodale Ekseption! Imagine a cross between The Nice and James Last.
Tony Burton I'd put Frumpy and Ekseption on the other way around but there we go
Peter Holländer only a few miles from my hometown, unfortunately I was a 3yo in 1972
Chuck Larsen Wow!! What a line up,. I was only 8 but I still wish I had a time machine

Today, 50 years ago, Pink Floyd started recording See Emily Play at Sound Techniques recording studio in London's Chelsea. Pink Floyd were filmed by Peter Whitehead recording at this converted dairy early in the band's career, capturing them running through Interstellar Overdrive (recently released as part of Record Store Day) and, as Whitehead booked two hours, the band had some spare time, so came up with Nick's Boogie on the spot...

On this day in 1971, Relics - A Bizarre Collection of Antiques and Curios - was released as a compilation album, with a hand-drawn cover by Nick Mason. With yesterday's opening of #TheirMortalRemains: The Pink Floyd Exhibition, we hope that some of you have already been able to explore the collection of antiques and curios on display at the V&A in London (or will be going soon).

Have you noticed the faces at the window? Here's Nick Mason loading the band's Bedford van (without the help of the others, it seems).

Edward Williams If this is real, why would you keep something like this? That man has problems, serious problems.
Nick Perugini Frank Conolly, we should take a jaunt over to London.
Bob Smith when he was at school?? so somehow someone got the same cane from the early 50's?? pull the other one.
Mike Scott will the exhibition be held north of the border as at an average of £250 per person to visit from up here it's a non starter for a great many people
Cillian Murphy Don't see what the big deal is with it, All in all it's just another stick on a wall......
