Discussion in 'Music Corner' started by Mark, Jul 9, 2014.
Didn't the deceased member of TG work for Storm for a short period as an assistant?
Peter Martin Christopherson (also known as Sleazy, 27 February 1955 – 25 November 2010) was a musician, video director, commercial artist, designer and photographer, and former member of British design agency Hipgnosis.
This "Rabbit Hole" keeps getting deeper and deeper..
It is a Fake-Cover from Amazon.
Haha! It's interesting you would read it that way. I'm not sure the line "leave [as] a pocketful of stones and not believe in other lives" necessarily indicates an atheist interpretation of the universe, but I do read the song as humanist.
That doesn't stop it from being discussed as if it were real. Not on the internet.
Maybe the most hideous fake album cover ever.
I alternating love and hate it, and continuously love hating it.
I don't know much about it. I hope it will be AAA.
Without reading through 2 threads, has there been a definitive date set for the release yet?
Yup, November 10th.
the October release is nov 10?
Yep. When this thread was started...on July 5th, October was expected.
Pink Floyd was worried about competition from the new Yusuf album.
I apologize if I missed a post but is there any other source for this November date besides that Billboard Fall album page?
Between the official site and the fan sites I follow — Neptune & Brain Damage — there have been no dates mentioned. There really hasn't been much at all since July except for the pictures from The Mastering Lab.

Free Four from the NPF forum just picked up the November issue of Uncut mag which features David and Nick on the cover and reveals the following about the album....
It is not based on The Big Spliff
Only a few seconds of the original Big Spliff (which was created by Andy Jackson) appear.
It does not contain any source from The Soundscape (Pulse Cassette)
Rick Wrights original recording from playing the Organ at The Royal Albert Hall during afternoon rehearsals in June 1969 has been mixed in.
The LP is based on four different pieces each taking a side each.
There is one song with lyrics called "Louder Than Words". This song is concerned with providing a full stop to the Pink Floyd saga, embracing the full history of the band. Gilmour sings ;
We bitch and we fight
But this thing that we do
It's louder than words
The sum of our parts
The beat of our hearts
It's louder than words
It focuses on the more atmospheric and digressive aspects of Pink Floyd and includes snippets of conversation.
Phil Manzanera played a key role throughout the project which started in August 2012 by Gilmour asking him to listen to the jam sessions.
Nick Masons drumming was the first element to be recorded in November 2013.
Gilmour and Mason spent in total 30 days over dubbing guitars and recording drums.
Apparently a very interactive and positive experience with Mason and Gilmour playing together again
Release date is 10th November.
There is much more context in the article, but hopefully this gives you an insight.
Thanks for the news
I hear the cover will have the image of Kenny Loggins on it.
The Endless River (Deluxe CD/Blu-Ray Casebook Edition)
Pink Floyd; Audio CD
Sold by Amazon.com LLC
Nothing appearing on Amazon search, or from the original link you had up (404'd). Hmm.
Thanks for the info. I'm slightly confused about one thing. Phil Manzarena started listening to "the jams" in 2012. I assume this is the 1994 jams leading up to The Division Bell. But the album is not based on "The Big Spliff"? I thought that was a nickname for a large part of the unused jam recordings that was even more ambient/atmospheric than what ended up on DB...
Thank you Rontoon; much appreciated
....looks like we'll have to buy this issue of Uncut. I see there is an article about Kate Bush too , so no reason not to purchase it
Cheers for the update, Rontoon!
That bit about 4 side-long tracks is intriguing. Looking forward to it.
Absolutely intriguing. Nov 10th can't come soon enough.
Thanks for the update on the matter, Rontoon!
Really looking forward to this release and all this that I mention earlier here:
Back at Amazon. This is IT folks!

I told you so! Some more from Uncut.
Arranged across four sections (called "four sides"), it is an instrumental album-with one song "Louder Than Words" embedded within Side Four – that largely privileges the band's spacey, ruminative qualities. Reassuringly, the elements for which they are best known- ethereal synths, acoustic passages, melodic guitar solos, exploratory digressions, sweeping organ- are all very much to the foreground. But critically, there is also another story here. The Endless River is a splendid tribute to one of their fallen comrades, the band's co-founder and keyboardist, Rick Wright, who died on September 15, 2008, aged 65. Indeed, the source of The Endless River lies in material originally recorded in sessions for The Division Bell by Wright, Gilmour and Nick Mason. "When we finished the Division Bell sessions," says Gilmour, "we had many pieces of music, only nine of which had become songs on the LP. Now with Rick gone and with him the chance of ever doing it again, it feels right these revisited tracks should be made available as part of our repertoire".
