40 years old this year!

Recommended Posts

I know it’s not directly a two channel subject but certainly a two channel playable piece of history from 1979 

Happy 40th anniversary to the Wall!

:^ I’ve moved this to “Recorded Music” section, as that is what is it is.

Besides, I feel old enough without being reminded if it :(. I was playing A Saucerfull of Secrets just over a week ago, which set me on the Prog. Rock/Pink Floyd journey. 

“A Saucerful of Secrets is the second studio album by the English rock band Pink Floyd, released on 29 June 1968. That is over 50 years now :cs:

Absolutely love this album, probably my favourite PF. I first heard it as a 16yo in the late 80's and it took about three listens but when I got it I was hooked. Brilliant and inspired

It got overplayed, not just the single but the whole bl###y album!

Great for engineering undergraduates, with long greasy hair, huddling together in the darkness around the warmth of a joss stick in their army surplus greatcoats muttering “far out man” to each other.

I preferred a hot shower, clean, smart clothes then a drink and dancing (with girls).

I let all that public schoolboy ‘art’ music pass me by. Blokes in frocks doing 25 minute synth solos! (Shudders to think about it.)

It that's 'Art'' music that gets up my hooter. It was pretentious c##p - most of it.

LAst Floyd album I bought was Animals, not interested in the Wall. There are a couple of decent tracks but the rest does nothing for me.

What do not like the wall it's a classic album :o

Was an extremely political album which you like or dislike but it woke up many artists to the world of expression..
