Still Wish You Were Here - Various Artists

Steve Hackett playing David Gilmour’s searing, soaring leads on “Shine on You Crazy Diamond (Parts 1-5)” is in fact a superb idea. He takes things in his own direction while remaining true to the spirit of the original. And because Geoff Downes is tasked with creating the song’s core by sticking close to Rick Wright’s keyboard work, he does a fine job with it. Mel Collins adds some nice flute work that fits into the overall arrangement. Geoff Tate’s vocals are a bit over-the-top, but in the context, they work.

“Welcome to the Machine as performed by an instrumental duo of Rick Wakeman and Tony Levin is inspired. And Todd Rundgren’s multi-tracked vocals make sense.

I wouldn’t have thought of Steve Stevens (Billy Idol’s foil) for “Have a Cigar,” but he does well. Patrick Moraz lays down tasty syhteiser lines. And they’re supported by an unexpected rhythm section: Rat Scabies (The Damned” and Jah Wobble (PiL). James Labrie’s vocals are spirited.

The title track is given a fairly reverential treatment, and that’s only fair. Taking it other places is likely ill-advised. Edgar Froese’s keyboard and acoustic(!) guitar work from Joe Satriani blend nicely. Triumph’s Rik Emmett sings. “SOYCD 6-9” features an entirely different lineup than the first part. This time it’s Zombies keyboardist Rod Argent, Steve Hillage on guitar (another excellent bit of casting), Bootsy Collins(!) on bass (and “spacebass”) and drummer Ian Paice. Argent sings.

The “Shine On” tracks are easily the best things here, but – shocker! – there’s nothing embarrassing about this project. The vocals many not be to every listener’s taste, but the personnel choices are inspired, and the performances balance an honor of the source material with flights of instrumental showmanship. If you care to own just one album tribute, Still Wish You Were Here may well be your best choice.

 
Thanks, Doc! Listening now.{#Good-vibes}

I went on a Floyd binge last night to see what I missed and just ended up listening to Dark Side of the Moon in its entirety and in proper order.  It is beyond masterpiece and verbal description.  If they had flipped flopped Breathe and Money as first songs of the other side then side 2 would have been too good for our auditory senses to handle.  Money is a great song, but there is only so much ubiquity a song can take, Captain.
 
 
Did find this though, this video is phenomenal{#Eek}:

Got it.  Iffen you want to talk about pf and keep it to pf, then peachy.

Been listening to them since 68 and was a day roadie for them at Kent State in 72, before DSOTM came out.  Got to meet them.  Love the music, and to me they are a blues band over anything else.
