Biography

In the early 1960s, a bunch of boys from Cambridge began jamming together, and out of those encounters were born the early incarnations of Pink Floyd. More than 40 years and 150 million album sales later, the band headlined the biggest global music event in history – Live 8 – and was inducted into the UK Music Hall of Fame. You could say the Floyd has staying power.

Exactly what was Pink Floyd's The Wall? Rock opera? Concept album? Performance art? Mere entertainment? While the truth may lie in a combination of all of the above, during the band's tour of 1980-81, The Wall was a bona fide spectacle. More than anything, Is There Anybody Out There? captures the volume, the bombast, and the grandeur of these famed performances with remarkable accuracy. Meticulously recorded, these concerts are astonishingly faithful to the band's studio versions and flow out of the speakers with practiced authority and absolutely fantastic sound. That said, there are few new revelations to be gained from hearing The Wall live that can't be gleaned from the studio version. Some moments do have an additional spark, however. "Run Like Hell" is launched with blistering intensity, and the first notes of "Another Brick in the Wall, Part 1" will surely raise a shiver. The release also includes two tracks ("What Shall We Do Now," "The Last Few Bricks") left off the original release due to space constraints. Essential for Floyd fanatics as well as those wishing to hear just how terrific a live concert can sound. --S. Duda

First thing, make sure you get the "limited edition"box set & not just the regular 2-CD set. You'll be sorelydisappointed when you find out what you missed. It's worth the extra money. The hardcover book that comes with it is worth the entire price by itself. Beautiful photos + commentary from the band & set designers, etc. Second thing, I (along with many Floyd fans) have been waiting a very long time for something I haven't heard before. Sure, new Pink Floyd material would be nice, but this 2 disc set of The Wall will definitely satiate the need for a while. I know everyone's heard the album before, but you have never heard it like this. Taken from various concerts at the original Earls Court in London from 1980 and 1981, these songs are among the best I have heard them do live. You've undoubtedly heard some of the songs live on Pulse or Delicate Sound of Thunder (both also great sets), but to finally get to hear the entire The Wall album -- I can only say that it is incredible. Remember the beauty of hearing the live version of Dark Side of the Moon from Pulse? Songs like "Goodbye Blue Sky," "Young Lust," and "Mother" shine on this collection, and more popular songs played many times live -- "Comfortably Numb," "Run Like Hell," and "Another Brick in the Wall" -- well, you have to hear them to hear the differences. I'll just tell you that the guitar & keyboard solos on Another Brick in the Wall make it worth the purchase price. Buy your copy, listen over and over, and keep hoping that Gilmour, Wright & Mason get together again for a new Pink Floyd album. Or maybe they'll do like The Dead & just start putting out a kind of "Dick's Picks" collection of live shows from the past. I could live with that.

"Is There Anybody Out There" is a excellent Floyd recording. At first, I was skeptical if this live release could do justice to the mythical reputation that the original live "Wall" shows have gained over the years. The first listen didn't strike me as anything special, but then I cranked up my stereo for the second listen, and that's when I realized that this recording is meant to be played LOUD, as loud as you can get it. The studio version of the "The Wall" was such a detailed, meticulous recording; trying to totally duplicate that sound in a live setting would have been impossible. Instead, the band turns up the volume and the bombast.
The power of songs like "In the Flesh" and "Run like Hell" is increased ten-fold in this concert setting. "Mother" becomes a stirring, emotional epic, reaching heights that were only hinted at on the studio album. The "Another Brick in the Wall Part 1/ Happiest Days of Our Lives " and "Empty Spaces/What Shall We Do Now" medleys achieve new levels of creepiness. And Roger Waters' maniacal spoken introduction to "Run Like Hell" is at once both hilarious and scary.
Much has been made of Roger Water's dominance in the writing and recording of "The Wall." He has even said that it is probably his greatest accomplishment, to which I agree. But, "The Wall" performances would not have been the same without the other members of Pink Floyd. Even with other musicians backing them up, these performances are tight and unified-all four band members, regardless of what they contributed in the studio, shine brightly.
The sound quality is excellent, considering the age of the tapes.

5.0 out of 5 stars I was out there. April 14, 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
When Pink Floyd toured, they only performed The Wall in New York and Los Angeles. Through a ticket broker I bought two tickets that were seventh roll center on the floor. The tickets were $45 each!

I remember every nuance of the show and I still wonder if there is a video of this excellent concert lurking somewhere.

Even though the recording is excellent, it can't touch the sonic/visual bombast that the show was. To see Roger Waters just giving his emotional heart in the performance, the visuals projected on the Wall, and the sonic effects gave the performance a eerie/creepy vibe. Some audience members were actually crying at some portions. And when the wall came down in the end and the band came out spotlighted in a golden glow, it felt like a healing.

Waters and Mason elected to wear earphones. Waters was singing into a wireless microphone (a technological first) that he would stuff into his back pocket when it wasn't in use. Each band member had a supporting musician, so everyone was doubled, even Mick Mason. Plus there were supporting vocalist.

To me, The Wall touched on many layers. The show had all the themes that Waters likes to vent about, losing his father at a young age, confining English upbringing, divorce and unhappiness at seeing people acting like sheep. Waters also touches on war rallies as he withdraws into his internal mental hell.

Let me give you some of the visuals.

When the MC (Cynthia Fox from radio station KLOS) came out and did her shtick, the stage had lots of "technicians" walking around the stage and adjusting equipment. While she was talking, the technicians parted and the group was already on stage ready to go, surprise, surprise. And they cut her off in mid-sentence.
