And By The Way, Which One's Pink?

Too much Twitter these days. I don't even know what a blog is anymore. Or maybe tomorrow is another day and I'll think of something that takes a few paragraphs to get out and absolutely must be shared! 

Or I'll just make myself write some stuff down right now. Like this...

I'm listening to the latest Coverville podcast tonight. Nothing but Pink Floyd covers. I like it so far, but I'm reminded of the fact that I currently own way too little Pink Floyd. It's a shameful thing to share, indeed. Over the years, be they 8-track tapes, cassettes, albums, or CDs, I've bought and re-bought pretty much everything they've done. It's time (beyond time) that I add the good ones to the iPod. So far, and with thanks to a friend, I've got Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, Animals, and Meddle. It's a decent start, but there are several must-haves remaining, notably, The Final Cut and the Roger Waters solo stuff.

Anyway, I recommend checking out Coverville 502 if you want to here some interesting Pink Floyd covers.

Goodbye Blue Sky.

Email me a list of what you lack and I'll see what I can do.

I hate to say it, but Roger Waters' solo stuff isn't the best, though some of it's worth your time (Amused to Death is a pretty good album). Anyway, I have some of that, too).

I agree with JQP. Don't especially love the Roger Waters solo stuff. I have Echoes if you want a copy let me know. Other than that I only have the same stuff you have. The David Gilmour solo stuff is really good though.

My once had, but now lost list is:

Momentary lapse of reason
The Wall
Final Cut
The division bell
Delicate sound of thunder

All good stuff I wish I still had residing on my ipod.

I have ALL of the PF on CD and then some. I also have the first 2 Dave Gilmour solos. The Waters stuff is just okay for me. I'll have to check out this covers thing.
