Get a good view of the Dark Side of the Moon?  I hear it's all dark... really.
 

Well, actually no, it isn't 'dark'.  It's just 'The Other Side of the Moon' and we don't get to see it.

But dark it isn't....

I thought the eclipse was cool, even through the pinhole and the music.....sorry if either offended you
Couldn't be more apropos.  Thanks, Bill!

I just punched a hole in a piece of paper and shined it on a white piece of wood on the floor at work. I just impressed the crap out of a bunch of young folks. I am a Sun God !

Perfect song for this afternoon… I hope the playlist for the 8th of April in 2024 has this ready as well. {#Cheers}
LOVE this version, haven't heard it in a long time on RP.....always a deep breath moment.  Needless to say timely given the Eclipse just occurred in Chicago about 90 minutes ago!

True!
Haven't heard any of these versions on RP for ages....Glad Bill dusted this off!  Looking forward to seeing Roger Waters this summer - you never know when the "last time" will be for these living legends.
TOTALLY agree with this comment.  Roger's lyrics are/were absolutely stunning for a 20 something.  I was 20 at the time.

Yes, Roger Waters makes the difference

How about 10 to an exponent for this one?  10 squared would fit it nicely into the scheme of things!

I don't have this album.  Off to Amazon's wish list! 

Thanks Bill!

Never got into PF, and the PSD button seems to be disabled (for this song only).  Guess that's how the cookie crumbles... :/

You'd think these dopey stoners could show a little empathy rather than referring to someone as a lunatic and pumping in stupid giggles, muzak saxophone and a lame chorus
Pink Floyd sucks! 
If it wasn't for the sax player not sticking to the script, it would have been pretty close to the original. Don't know what it is about sax players... lol!

Perfect music for watching the eclipse, here in S Fla! Thanx Bill & Rebecca.
Can you imagine what your life would have been like without DSOTM?
Thank you, PSD fairy!

Very nice - but I prefer the studio version, perhaps because it is forever etched into my brain. When I listen to the live version, all I hear are the many ways it is NOT what I will forever love. DSOTM: Number 1 on my list of "desert island discs" - a classic study and commentary on "the human condition", something I may need reminding of while I contemplate whether or not to eschew the island life.
Roger Waters is playing bass on this. Too bad it ended so ugly.

Uh!  Typical mistake to confuse causes with effects.   I'm a Pink Floyd "fan boy" (since 1969) exactly because they have given me more shivers down my spine and tears to my eyes, enduringly, than any other band, ever.  I don't rate the song a 10 'coz I'm a fanboy, I rate it a 10 because it resonates with something deep inside me that few music pieces ever get to.

I know many people who find PF pompous, but they're generally of the "shove me in the shallow water, before I get too deep" sort.

Wow — THAT was one of the best and most impressive (and EXPRESSIVE) stretches of exquisite music ever let slide across the waves and wires that I have EVER heard on ANY station, ANYWHERE.  Truly awesome, incredible, and absolutely as perfect as it gets.  THANKS!
Repeat: Thanks again RP.  Wonderful to hear the entire album!
My monthly contribution is mere gratituity to the genius of Bill & Rebecca and the Radio Paradise concept. The same appreciation you pay with a decent tip for a decent meal served. Always on. Always good. No yack
Bravo Bill. Bravo. Could stand some more good old circa 70's whole sides DJ'n. Love it. Play On.
OMG, this long Pink Floyd set is heaven.  Especially great for a long day at work!  I cannot crank the speakers high enough!

Wow, I'm pretty sick of Dark Side of the Moon after forty years now but this performance is pretty amazing.
Uh oh...it's the Pink Floyd orgy-fest. Better make some plans for the rest of the day.

Oh, man!  When I think of all the time, money, and dignity that I have spent over the last 35+ years in the pursuit of sex, when all along, this "live performance" was better.  Oh, well; it wasn't a complete waste: there's still the ambrosial memory of that club-footed, cannery wench from New Brunswick...

Please please stop, I'll contribute, I know I've missed a few months but it won't happen again. Just make it stop. PLEASE!!!!!
Thank you for playing thew whole set! 
A run consisting of "Speak to Me", "Money" and now "Us and Them".  Some PF gluttony? Good like too much cajun food. 
Be honest, ol' boys (commenting). Gimme your age!

I missed it when I was younger as well, but I saw Roger Waters do DSOTM a couple of years ago and am going to see him/PF do The Wall in June.  I think it lacks something without David Gilmour, but still great stuff.
 
Oh really....? Still THE WALL? Hahahahaha - that's exactly what I am saying! Among many other things!
This is probably the only radio ever that will play 15 minutes of PF straight. Gotta love Paradise.

I really don't understand the 8.8 rating: this version is even better than the album's, and that one is already godlike.

Naughty Naughty.....

I shall go with the common herd and give it a 10 like the majority on here 

GRAUSAMES GEJAULE!

Why is Gilmour considered to be a great guitar player? I was able to play such riffs when I was 14-15.

It's just boring, even untalented, if you ask me!

 

Why me? Ask Knopfler or Dominic Miller (Sting) - they can play the guitar!

Ask a 1000 other guitarists!

Not even a shadow of a melody! What has this Sugar-Daddy "Rock" to do with eclectic Rock Music? I will neither ever understand, nor EVEr accept! 


This is pityful "over-60" stadion-rock for those who have never

felt and heard real Rock'n'Roll. Slimey, oily bull!

 

 


Headphones on.  Volume up to 11. Lunch is going to have to wait for another 20 minutes.
Diggin the improv parts with Gilmour/Waters/Wright playing off of each other.  Very nice.
Gilmore's guitar work on "Any Colour You Like is brilliant!{#Sunny}
21 minutes, 52 seconds. Looks like Bill needed a long break. Enjoy!
I wore this album out-way back when. No, no Wizard of Oz stuff...Just good music for the time... Then I didn't wish to hear it... *Now* thru the magic of the RP flow...It fits and is welcome... as an old friend in new clothing... It's not the one song...But the human ear and taste that knit such a pleasant experience... Thank You ! Yet-again...
My sunday just got better; one of the 20 min PF live sets and I turn up the volume… wait it continues yes yes yes
First time that I heard the full set... How can I have missed it before?!!!
This is why we listen to RP; any commercial station would go bancrupt pulling stunts like this {#Lol}
Now I just have to get back to do the stuff that I was supposed to be doing this afternoon  
Wow man, That is way cool: 3 PF songs in a row. Turn up the volume!
Home from the usual trying day in the office.. I log into RP and hear the "GodLike" live performance.... I read back in the comments and see that nobody has make the most obvious one.. ... Like...
  
"Wow Man.. that was waaay cool ! "   

;P    Gus
Guess I'm gunna have spend $122 to buy the box set! 20+ minutes of bliss!
Thank you Bill and RP.  This extended live version is the Cream.  Sadly, I do get tired of hearing so much "standard" Floyd (especially The Wall) - but this, this is Heaven.
I was not familiar with this extended track.  Thanks!!!
Would love it if Bill would give us a heads up in advance when he's going to play these extended - AMAZING - versions so I can position myself for optimal listening!

Clare Torry is the answer.

"The Great Gig in the Sky"

In 2004, she sued Pink Floyd and EMI for songwriting royalties on the basis that her contribution to "The Great Gig in the Sky" constituted co-authorship with keyboardist Richard Wright. Originally, she was paid the standard flat fee of £30 for Sunday studio work. In 2005, an out-of-court settlement was reached in Torry's favour, although the terms of the settlement were not disclosed. All releases after 2005 credit 'Richard Wright/Clare Torry' for the "Great Gig in the Sky" segment.

Er, TerryS, your cut and paste about CT singing the amazing vocals on GGITS is correct, but I don't believe she sang on any other track on the album, and I don't believe she ever toured with them. So that can't be her singing on this track. 


 


Just to let you know that I got home from my b'day night, connected to RP and just had the greatest time listening to the whole track, thx for the present!!!!
  I enjoy this every time.  {#Bananajam}
I recently ragged on the Floyd's omnipresence vis a vis "The Wall" and "Animals". I also disclaimed by stating I love Floyd. Here is one of the reasons why.

Saw them in Phoenix summer of 1987 or 1988. (it was one of those two) A very nice show at Phoenix Municipal Stadium.

"apparently Mr Gilmour encoraged her to do it because she didnt have an income, the legalities meant that she was entitled to be credited on the album and paid more than £30.  (the actual sum was not disclosed)


 


Wow. I like Pink Floyd a lot, but this track is just a tad on the long side. Great in concert, I'm sure, but as the soundtrack to my day at work in the office? Not so much.
more classic album sides or long sets. reminds me of the days I used to listen to vinyl. thx

There are a select few songs out there that require the option of a rating higher than 10.

This would be one of them.

I still just love it every time

It needs variety. That's why it listens to RP, to feed its insatiable desire for musical novelty and freshness. I enjoy the extended songs from PF played on RP, such as Shine on you Crazy Diamond, but a 30-minute live track is pushing it. Those listeners who don't like PF will be mightily hacked off.

Sorry, but I've been hearing a lot of 'vanilla' music on RP lately, and this is how it used to be! oxo.
