This day in HISTOROCK !! Wish You Were Here !!




        This day in HISTOROCK !!


              In 1976, ''Wish You Were Here'' had been on the UK charts for close one year !! Pink Floyd’s ninth studio had been premiered at Knebworth in July 1975, and was released in September that year and became an instant success !! Record company EMI was unable to press enough copies to satisfy demand !! With 250,000 advance sales it went straight to number one and demand was such that EMI informed retailers that only 50% of their orders would be filled. With 900,000 advance orders (the largest for any Columbia release),it reached number one on the US Billboard chart in its second week. In 1991 "Wish You Were Here" was Pink Floyd's fastest-selling album ever !! The album has since been acclaimed by critics and appears on Rolling Stone's list of "The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time". Band members Richard Wright and David Gilmour have each declared "Wish You Were Here" their favorite Pink Floyd album !! The artwork for the album package was once again created by the Hipgnosis team, who created a series of tableaux based on ‘absence’, including the empty gesture of a handshake between two US business men (one of whom is on fire), a diver that causes no ripples, and a piece of gauze floating in the wind, photographed somewhere in Norfolk, UK !! It was the 2nd Pink Floyd album to use a concept theme and was written by Roger Waters !! During the final mix of "Shine On You Crazy Diamond"(A tribute to Barrett), an overweight-man with shaven head and eyebrows, and holding a plastic bag, entered the room. Waters, who was working in the studio, initially did not recognize him. Gilmour presumed he was an EMI staff member, Mason also failed to recognize him; he was "horrified" when Gilmour told him it was Syd. Nick Mason recalled Barrett's conversation as "desultory and not entirely sensible". Storm Thorgerson later reflected on Barrett's presence stating: "Two or three people cried. He sat round and talked for a bit but he wasn't really there". Barrett left without saying goodbye and they never seen him again up to his death in 2006 !! Waters was reportedly reduced to tears by the sight of his former bandmate and said: "I'm very sad about Syd. Of course he was important and the band would never have fucking started without him because he was writing all the material. It couldn't have happened without him but on the other hand it couldn't have gone on with him. "Shine On" is not really about Syd—he's just a symbol for all the extremes of absence some people have to indulge in because it's the only way they can cope with how fucking sad it is, modern life, to withdraw completely. I found that terribly sad" On the bright side, "Wish You Were Here" is an incredible album and one of Floyd's absolute best !! Every song is a "CLASSIC" !! Remember when you were young, you shone like the sun, Shine on you crazy diamond !! Here is the song in it's entirety, parts 1 through 9 !! Enjoy :-) 


Keep on ROCKIN !!

This day in HISTOROCK !! Stevie Ray Vaughan !!


       This day in HISTOROCK !!


                In 1990, the world lost an incredible talent when Stevie Ray Vaughan was killed, when the helicopter he was flying in, hit a man-made ski slope while trying to navigate through dense fog. Vaughan had played a show at Alpine Valley Music Theater, East Troy, Wisconsin with Robert Cray & His Memphis Horns, and Eric Clapton. Vaughan was told by someone in Clapton's crew that three seats were open on a helicopter returning to Chicago with Clapton's crew, but it turned out there was only one seat left. Vaughan's brother had the last seat, but gave it up to Stevie when asked. Three members of Eric Clapton's entourage were also killed. In 2003, Rolling Stone magazine ranked Stevie Ray Vaughan #7 in its list of the 100 Greatest Guitarist's of all time !! About a year earlier on Aug 10/1989, SRV played here in Moncton,NB with the Stray Cats opening. I had managed to get tickets and backstage passes to the show, but was unable to get out of work. Major regret :-( Stevie came to prominence after performing at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 1982 !! People magazine's James McBride had this to say about Vaughan's performance : "He seemed to come out of nowhere, a Zorro-type figure in a riverboat gambler's hat, roaring into the '82 Montreux festival with a '59 Stratocaster at his hip and two flame-throwing sidekicks he called Double Trouble. He had no album, no record contract, no name, but he reduced the stage to a pile of smoking cinders and, afterward, everyone wanted to know who he was" This performance also caught the attention of David Bowie who called SRV to ask him to play on his new album Let's Dance !! SRV played on 6 of the 8 songs and also went on tour with Bowie, elevating his bright star even higher !! SRV found his own success with the release of Texas Flood in 1983, scoring hits with "Love Struck Baby' & Pride And Joy !! He went on to release 5 more albums including "Family Style'' with brother Jimmy and his last release before his death, aptly titled  "The Sky Is Crying" !!  On Stevie's last tour, here are some of the legend's that opened up for him : Stray Cats, Jeff Healey, BB King, Jeff Beck, Albert King & Buddy Guy !! What a list !! It's been 24 years since we lost Stevie, and the sky still cries !! Check out this awesome 1 hour  live video of SRV filmed in Toronto,Ontario at the El Mocambo nightclub !! RIP Stevie !!  




Keep on ROCKIN !!
