Is There Anybody Out There? The Wall Live 1980–81

The twentieth anniversary of The Wall was not only celebrated with a DVD release featuring a delicious commentary from Waters, director Alan Parker and artist Gerald Scarfe but a live album pieced together from 16 hours of music recorded during the Earl’s Court performances. Is There Anybody Out There? The Wall Live 1980–81 captured the band ploughing through Waters’ creation at full steam and the sheer power and punch of the music was as arresting as the visual spectacle of the concerts. The band re-formed to promote the album; sadly this was only individually in front of journalists’ dictaphones.


Waters’ In The Flesh

Initially Roger Waters’ record company wanted the live album of In The Flesh to be a single CD. He convinced them otherwise and the resulting two-CD release presented Floyd fans with the entire two-hour set. Drawn from performances in Phoenix, Las Vegas, Irvine and Portland during the second tour in 2000 this was essentially Floyd and Waters’ greatest hits from ‘Set The Controls To The Heart Of The Sun’ to a new song ‘Each Small Candle’ that dealt with small acts of humanity during war. Waters’ fans also saw him In The Flesh on the DVD release of the Portland show.
