Cram... Cram... I Will Cram You... [Syd DVD]

Post by Feeling Very Pink »

Does the new Syd Barrett/Pink Floyd DVD contain any footage that wasn't broadcast in the original BBC2 program in Nov. 2001? Even though I'll get it anyway! :wink:

No. It basically IS the Omnibus 2001 programme. Great on DVD though.

I will buy it to,but it is a shame that it is only 49 minutes long,i mean,they must have interview lots of people,and they all had lots to say,so,why not include it,i mean you can fit a lot onto a D.V.D,it seems like another missed chance to me,i would like to see a proper history/story of Pink Floyd,akin to the Beatles anthology,ok,it might not be as long as that one,but there is a huge amount to the Pink Floyd story,the Syd era alone should fill a D.V.D,why can't any of the production companies see this,will we have to wait untill a few members of the band die before we get anything like this.

Yeah. There must be gallons (gallons?!) of stuff on the cutting room floor. What a waste.

Nick Mason has a tonne of Pink Floyd footage, which we won't see until his history of the band is complete at some point in the distant future. David Gilmour has mentioned that Nick has 8mm footage of the 5 man Pink Floyd in a dressing room, that would make interesting viewing!

That must be the one Tim Willis mentioned of the boys mucking about doing a tap dance in the dressing room in Jan 68. Syd looks happy, but is "Rather pathetic" according to Fat Dave.

It's a Syd quote - from a bit of studio chat talking about Dolly Rocker

"Rather pathetic" really!

Poor Syd. He really did try, you know.
