In the summer of 1978, Roger Waters, Pink Floyd's singer-bassist and primary songwriter, presented the other members with two sets of demos and a choice: Pick one for the next album. The rest of the Floyd wisely voted for Waters' bleak, enraged observation on emotional exile and totalitarian celebrity, provisionally titled Bricks in the Wall. (The other demos became Waters' 1984 midlife-crisis opera "The Pros and Cons of Hitchhiking".)

The early version of Young Lust (forget the link now) is really groovy. Quite a different vibe to the angrier version that appeared on the release.

With that and You've Gotta Be Crazy, it seems that they had a bit of a side habit in starting with lots of words and really stripping it down (though with the Dogs predecessor, it sounds like Gilmour is really struggling with it on the '74 concert recording-so not surprised really!).

Does David play any of his older solo material on tour? The DVDs/CDs seem to show a distinct lack of them.

I'd love to hear him do songs like There's No Way Out Of Here, Cry From The Street (great riff!) or No Way. Plenty of good stuff on About Face, too..

Cheers, but just as I thought. On an Island and Floyd favourites.
