Side one has a break between On The Run and Time, whereas side two has no breaks. I think it flows better.

I never noticed a break in between On The Run and Time.

There is the huge explosion, then the clocks.

I wouldn't consider that a break, On The Run ends with the explosion which then segues to the clocks, I don't hear any silence in between.

There is no actual break between the tracks but you can't argue that has better flow than Us and Them>Any Colour You Like, or any two tracks on side two. They are all direct musical transitions.

On The Run is a synth solo, so ending it with the explosion makes sense, not to say that the transitions on side 2 are bad, it's just that I think Speak To Me, Breathe, On The Run, and Time are the best segues on the album.

I guess I just don't see the transition into time as a real segue since there is no music.

Richard Wright would have been seventy-four today. Drew this in memoriam:

I miss Rick. I miss him for David Gilmour's sake, though I suppose David's had nine years to get over it and has moved on ahdn_george_06, and for my own selfish sake, because I so want to see David and Rick perform 'Echoes' together (among many other things). a-hard-days-night-paul-10a-hard-days-night-paul-10a-hard-days-night-paul-10

I might have put this thread in the wrong place, I'm not talking about brain damage as the result of trauma, just the Pink Floyd song!   

I've always played a vague approximation of the first bit of Brain Damage on the guitar without really thinking much about it. The chords are blessedly simple and yet the song is a masterpiece.  For the first time yesterday I tried playing along with the original.  I didn't realize but Roger has the guitar tuned down like Paul does on Yesterday .  It's still in standard tuning but down a step.  

I only have an electro-acoustic guitar but I am trying to get that great sound using my Zoom R8 recorder to add reverb etc.  There are other guitars overdubbed on the original version which I'll try and add later but if I can just get anything like that sound and especially get the picking right I will be happy!

If I get anywhere with it I'll post it on the Pimp your stuff section.  Anyone else care to post their version? 🙂

A note from Roger found on my FB feed this weekend.

One of my oldest friends, Nick Sedgwick, died in August of 2011 of brain cancer. I miss him a lot. I share this sad news with you all for a good reason.

He leaves behind a manuscript, IN THE PINK (not a hunting memoir).

His memoir traces the unfolding of events in 1974 and 1975 concerning both me and Pink Floyd. In the summer of 1974 Nick accompanied me, and my then wife Judy, to Greece. We spent the whole summer there and Nick witnessed the beginnings of the end of that marriage.

That autumn he travelled with Pink Floyd all round England on The Dark Side Of The Moon Tour. He carried a cassette recorder on which he recorded many conversations and documented the progress of the tour. In the spring of 1975 he came to America with the band and includes his recollections of that time also.

When Nick finished the work in 1975 there was some resistance in the band to its publication, not surprising really as none of us comes out of it very well, it's a bit warts and all, so it never saw the light of day.

It was Nick's wish that it be made available to all those interested in that bit of Pink Floyd history. All proceeds will go to Nick's family.

Very cool! I must say Roger looks rather winsome in that photo.

Was looking at vinyls, as I mentioned elsewhere, and couldn't leave the Floyd albums without arranging them in chronological order. ahdn_george_06

I think he might even look better now than he did when he was young, although the jury is still out...

I prefer his younger look personally but for his 70's he isn't that bad.

This may seem like a stupid question but is The Wall the sequel to The Dark Side Of The Moon because both albums have a similar concept. By the way, Time is a great song and i also like Breathe, Comfortably Numb, and a few others as well.

Not a sequel, but yeah, similar concepts. It wasn't just those two albums but also Wish You Were Here - they took lyrical inspiration from the mental decline of Syd Barrett, Roger Waters has said.
