The Wall - Parker's Perspective


You may be aware that the commentary on both of the official editions of the DVD is by Roger Waters and Gerald Scarfe. Alan Parker (the director) had a commentary track on the insanely limited second edition of the laser disk. (Most copies of the laser disk are the first edition and do not contain the Alan Parker commentary.)

As we have spent an awfully long time on Mr. Gilmour's "feel good" music from On An Island, I thought we were long over due to wallow around in a little misery with Mr. Waters and Mr. Parker.

Here are two DVDs, containing the film with Mr. Parker's commentary track. The artwork is in the archive.

Thank you for unearthing that commentary track!

This should really be on the official DVD too.
If Roger had the guts...

Waters and Scarfe's commentary is not bad, but it pales if you listen to this one.

Thank you very much for this gem!
