Pink Floyd : The Lostbrook Tape Series - Volume 8

Roger Waters did an outstanding job with The Wall in 2010. I was impressed enough
by the show in DC to see it again in Philadelphia, but you simply cannot compare it
to the 1980 tour. This concert is Pink Floyd. End of discussion. The Wall album
had been out for less than three months, but I had been there for some of the earlier
bricks in 1977, with fireworks exploding over my head and “bottles breaking in the hall.”
I was fortunate that five out of the 31 concerts on the tour would be in my backyard.
I took no chances, called every scalper I knew, and acquired a seat in the seventh row
for sixty dollars. There is little I can add to what has already been said about the
concert, other than a personal observation I made at the time. You’ll hear it on the
tape - after the wall has come down, as the band is exiting, still playing Outside the Wall,
I declared it to be “the most beautiful moment” I had ever seen in a concert. Special
thanks to Allison and Ellen for their help with the camera and tapes.
