This film is one of those once-in-a-lifetime finds. I met Anthony Stern (the director) and have had a few phone conversations with him concerning the film. He is such a nice man. He has a warm handshake and a steel-trap memory. If you ever have the chance, please send him some love.

You no doubt recall that back in 2000, the 20th anniversary of The Wall album, a live version of The Wall was officially released for the first time. This is the radio show that celebrated the release. It includes the usual groovy interviews.

They did speak with Alan Parsons, Roy Harper, one of the band's technicians and various others though and the show is somewhat enlightening about the 'Flying Pig' incident over London, when it broke free of it's tethers while shooting the pictures for the 'Animals' album cover. And the presenter speaks at length with a rather bemused night-shift manager at Heathrow Air-Traffic Control...
What is interesting though is the subject of the discussion, and the context to which it puts the Floyd's soundtrack, and the historical / cultural context within which they were composing the music. Zabriskie is a dense, and pretty impenetrable movie, and a lot of people write it of as a 'too much talk not enough action' show... I think the discussion in this show helps reveal some of Antonioni's intentions and make the movie a more enjoyable watch. Both the movie and this radio show, are probably more for the die-hards, even so.

Complete Documentary Broadcast. 58'19"
The interview was recorded during the band's session for the Top Gear show broadcast by the BBC on 1968-11-08, but it wasn't featured in the broadcast at that time. I believe that the interview was intended for the 'Top Of The Pops' Transcription Services show, which the BBC made for sale to foreign stations around the world.
Track 2: Second half of the above Mason interview (the songs played on the show were cut out on this copy).
Track 3: "Rockspeak" 1974 interview with Rick Wright, segment 1.
Track 4: "Rockspeak" 1974 interview with Rick Wright, segment 2.
Track 5: "Rockspeak" 1974 interview with Rick Wright, segment 3.

DAT recorders can record in different sound quality levels. Again, you get exactly the quality of the original DAT tape. This means better-than-CD for most of them.
28/2/70 - 1' 25"
19/11/74 - DSOTM + Echoes (1' 18")
I should also probably tell you that there's a little bonus weirdness on the very, very end of this one... But, I honestly have no idea what it is. If you should happen to know, please leave a comment!!
