With the release of "Is There Anybody Out There?", one of the most electrifying rock performances is now available for everyone who was not able to see this piece of rock history.
I saw the performance of The Wall at the Nassau Colosseum the same year as this recording was made. As I listen to the record I can still see the spectacular performance that Floyd put on that night.
To capture this type of performance it to try and catch lightning in a bottle. This is not to say that it is a bad record, quite the contrary, this is a magnificent album that does everything it can to put you in the audience that night.
From the moment that the announcer is cut off with the thundering guitar of "In The Flesh", you are taken to away to that place where Roger Waters intended you to be. Inside the head of Pink. The ultimate anti rock star. You are taken for the biographical ride of your life.
The Wall remains one of the most influential and important works by one of the greatest bands of this era. This release is the definative version of The Wall. It is the music the way the band ment you to hear it. Live...loud....and in your face!!
This is a must have record for any Pink Floyd fan. We can only hope that someday they can put aside their differences and go back to being the group that can produce this quality of performance.
