Re: Pink Floyd

Guess I am a little different, I find Pink Floyd is the best with headphones, closed back, over ear. Favorite tune "High Hopes", least favorite "Several Species of Small Furry Animals Gathered Together in a Cave and Grooving with a Pict". The wife doesn't mind the mainstream Pink Floyd, but turns up her nose the the "acid trip" stuff

As far as best way to listen I agree with everyone that says get the SACD of Dark Side of the Moon, it can be picked up pretty cheap and it sounds fantastic.
The SACD mix of Dark Side of The Moon is excellent, however, I think the 2 channel mix with good headphones is better.

So the SACD is a hybrid disc are you referring to the two channel DSD or CD mix on the SACD or from a different source?

Re: Pink Floyd

I am a Floyd nut and still love listening to their music, watching their videos and just zoning as defined by said tunage.

I have seen the entire band 4 times live starting with the road show for Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, Animals (Twice) then of course Roger Waters 3 times live stating with Pros and Cons with Clapton live on guitar. Ahhhhhh, the good old days.

It is my strong opinion that the best sounding music comes from when Roger was still part of the band and used his OCD for perfection to control the recording process. One needs only dip their ears into the lovely elegance that is the tune "If" from the Atom Heart Mother album. You can hear Rogers vocals and writing style start to allow itself to come forward not to mention Gilmours melodic style that does not include too many nor too few notes, just the right amount with a groovy atmosphere to the song that promotes spaciality to come in future recordings.
Should we discuss the best versions or all their albums ???

Oh an my wife is ok with it and even went with me to see Roger twice live when he was near us. My daughter loves em too.

Good Listening

Yes, the good old days. I was able to see them 4 times, Animals, The Wall, A Momentary Lapse of Reason and The Division Bell. All were very good shows, I wish I could have seen the Dark Side of the Moon and Wish You Were Here tours. I never saw Roger on a solo tour, I'm sure they were very good as well...

Sent from my iPad using HTShack EDIT: One of Pink Floyd's less-celebrated works is "Obscured by Clouds", the soundtrack to the film La Vallée and is a favorite of mine. But not as much of a favorite as "Animals." One more Pink Floyd title that gets a lot of airplay is their DVD of "Live at Pompeii," an outdoor concert with no audience!
Funny, when I bought Live at Pompeii, I think VHS was the only option lol...still a great video no matter what format.

And I fully agree, Obscured is a fantastic album

Re: Pink Floyd

I was the odd-man-out with my first copy on Betamax (j/k).
I recently plopped "The Making of DSOTM" and "The Making of Wish You Were Here" into the BD player. Wasn't expecting much and didn't expect to make it through the whole rock-u-mentaries, but was pleasantly entertained!
