Echoes Full Length: Pink Floyd

The full Length of Echoes by Pink Floyd. This version is from the outstanding DVD set Remember That Night.

Echoes written by Roger Waters, Richard Wright, Nick Mason, David Gilmour in 1970 and released in 1971 for the album Meddle. The original track from Meddle is Pink Floyd's third longest song at 23:31 minutes. This version is 22 minutes long.

The album Meddle represents (to me) the coming together of previous sound experimentation, effects and delay loops that were the early formation of Pink Floyd's famous sound. The squeals from David's guitar is the result of an earlier mistake made by a Pink Floyd roadie who hooked up David's wah pedal backwards. David refined the sound which became known as "The Seagull Effect".

Pink Floyd: Echoes

Please check this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1H0uiQepQGU

""Echoes" is a song by Pink Floyd including lengthy instrumental passages, sound effects, and musical improvisation. Written in 1970 by all four members of the group (credited as Roger Waters, Richard Wright, Nick Mason, David Gilmour on the original release), "Echoes" provides the extended finale to Pink Floyd's album Meddle. The track has a running time of 23:31 and takes up the entire second side of the vinyl recording.
It also appears in shortened form as the fifth track on the compilation album which took its name, Echoes: The Best of Pink Floyd. "Echoes" is the third-longest song in Pink Floyd's catalogue, after "Atom Heart Mother" (23:44) and the combined segments of "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" (26:01). Unlike those pieces, it is not explicitly divided into separate parts; however, the composition was originally assembled from separate fragments, and was later split in two parts to serve as both the opening and closing numbers in the band's film Live at Pompeii."

Pink Floyd: Story of Wish You Were Here (trailer)

"Wish You Were Here", released in September 1975, was the follow up album to the globally successful "The Dark Side Of The Moon" and is cited by many fans, as well as band members Richard Wright and David Gilmour, as their favourite Pink Floyd album. Get your copy here: http://smarturl.it/PinkFloydWYWHdvdblu On release it went straight to Number One in both the UK and the US and topped the charts in many other countries around the world. This programme tells the story of the making of this landmark release through new interviews with Roger Waters, David Gilmour and Nick Mason and archive interviews with the late Richard Wright. Also featured are sleeve designer Storm Thorgerson, guest vocalist Roy Harper, front cover "burning man" Ronnie Rondell and others involved in the creation of the album. In addition, original recording engineer Brian Humphries revisits the master tapes at Abbey Road Studios to illustrate aspects of the songs' construction.


Pink Floyd: Live at Pompeii - Director's cut

Pink Floyd: Live at Pompeii is a 1972 film featuring Pink Floyd performing six songs in the ancient Roman amphitheatre in Pompeii, Italy. It was directed by Adrian Maben and recorded in the month of October with 24 studio-quality tracks without a live audience.

The performances of "Echoes," "A Saucerful of Secrets," and "One of These Days" were filmed from October 4, 1971 to October 7, 1971. The remaining songs were filmed in a Paris studio, along with additional front projection footage for insertion into the Pompeii performances. The sequences in Paris were filmed in late 1971/early 1972, and can be distinguished by the absence of Richard Wright's beard. This version was released in cinemas in September 1972 and is also included on the DVD edition as an extra feature.

In August 1974, another version was released combining the original film with supposed recording sessions of The Dark Side of the Moon at Abbey Road Studios. These sessions were actually staged for the film[citation needed], as the recording of the album had been completed when these sessions were filmed in January 1973 and the band was mixing the album at the time.
