It's a shame they never had the intelligence to put shine on part 2 on the bloody double album!

I love part 2, especially that bit just before the main verse comes in, you know, it's a few minutes in to it and is the bit where the music lairs and builds up before climaxing at the end and the duhu duh bit starts for the verse.

They did perform 'echoes' a few times at the beginning the AMLOR tour. They dropped it because Gilmour said he didn't want to sing about albatrosses. (or something dumb like that).
