| Times from the CD player -PATRICK
I listened to the entire CD, and they are indeed, in stereo
and amazing quality recording, the tracks from the movie. I
was dissapointed that the CD did not include the first part
of "When the Tigers Broke Free" (track#1 is the bit when the
camera pans along Pink's arm, and that 50's song is being
sung on the radio).
There is NO copyright date or release notes inside the CD.
The liner is one fold, and contains a white brick animated
Wall with two or three frames from the movie which can be
seen in gaps, and one drawn poster for the movie (the
hammers on the march) which is also in a gap in the wall.
The CD itself has a white wall drawn on it, and the PINK
FLOYD - THE FILM over and under the CD spindle hole in
Waters' script/scrawl. Etched into the plastic of the
spindle hole is "ODY 029 WALL 1". The disc is labelled ADD,
has the "Compact DISC Digital Audio" logo and another logo
reading "GEMA" in a box. Along the top arc of the CD is
written "All rights of the producer and the owner of the
work reproduced reserved unauthorized copying, hiring,
lending, public performance and broadcasting of this
recording prohibited". The CD is 75mins long.
The bottom of the CD case (where the CD rests) is
transparent, and the liner behind it is the same picture as
the cover, but more centered and without the text. Visible
through the transparent spine area is "Unreleased Versions
From The Movie "The Wall"" exactly as on the back.
I was wondering if this is a legit recording or a ROIO? The
fact that there is no copyright info. printed on the liner
would indicate a ROIO, but the fact that EVERYTHING is in
the exact Rog-style script lends to the theory that it is
indeed legit, yet not too well known.
At any rate, anyone keeping a ROIO discography should be
notified immediately, as I don't remember ever hearing of
this CD's existance. -ANON
The track list is wrong. They included "What Shall We Do Now?"
instead of "Empty Spaces", tracks 10 and 11 are both track 10,
tracks 12 and 13 are both "One of my Turns". Only the second
half of "When the Tigers Broke Free" is included. The CD has a
total playing time of 75:38. -ANON
This CD includes some snippets of dialogue and sound effects
from the film soundtrack, as well as the music. -ANON
For one thing, the disc is fast. Not much, probably just a
half step up, but it's only noticeable on the songs that
were not changed for the film (i.e. Another Brick in The
Wall and Nobody's Home, to name a few).
Other than that, the disc is fine, there is a little
distortion on Goodbye Blue Sky (which leads me to believe
that this was recorded from an analogue source instead of
the Laserdisc as I had hoped) and a some of the fade-ups are
a tad annoying, but these are really minor complaints,
especially when you consider how much different material is
on here. There were only a few tunes that were re-recorded
for the film, but all the rest were remixed, some of them
noticeably so: new guitar or keyboard bits, or parts just
higher in the mix than the original.
All in all, I give it a thumbs up. -ANON
An absolute gem if you want a complete collection of "Wall"
recordings. The sound quality is crystal clear. It seems that
this was mastered from an analogue source of the movie "The
Wall" rather than the laserdisc version; too bad. The fact that
it contains versions "When The Tigers Broke Free" and "What
Shall We Do Now?", which are not included on the album or CD
("When The Tigers Broke Free" was only released on a 45
single). All in all, a great RoIO for anyone who is a fan of
This is my opinion about the album, Pink Floyd, The Film 1982.
I recently purchased this CD and believe that the sound quality
is fantastic. I do have all 25 tracks on my disc (one review
said that the CD case indicated 25 tracks, but was missing a
few). The CD serial number is 1102 BD123 1662 if you need that
number for records. The CD insert is in plain text and has
colour graphics that appear to have been printed on a home
colour printer. There is no indication of a copyright date
anywhere--not on the jewel case or on the insert. Overall, this
album is a wise purchase. -ANON
NOTE: This CD is not to be confused with its namesake -
"The Film" - which has poorer sound quality and
cuts off after Run Like Hell.
Very good CD, which contains tracks from the movie which should
have been on the original CD. All tracks are taken directly
from the movie, as all the moive characters and things
happening in the movie are heard during the tracks. Besides
having distortion on final 6 tracks, this CD is quite
I found this in a hole in the wall used CD store BRAND NEW!!!!!
I bought it because I loved the movie and I found out that I
was amazed on how much more I liked this CD than The Wall CD.
Don't get me wrong though, The Wall is an outstanding CD also
but I love The Film - LANCE
