look for the Polish tv broadacast online, if you can find it, the full dress production may make it more interesting: Roger evens cameos as the Pope
*spits pepsi onto screen

Please PLEASE tell me this part is up on You Tube? :lol: [-D-]

well you can a Pope-like character about 45 seconds in

but I cant tell whether thats Roger or not
I seem to remember another part where he was waving from a little Shriner-car, with the hat and the shades on, but admittedly I could have just drempt that
here is a citation for my outrageous claim, see the final line of the reviews

much more interesting aspect of this video to me is: theres boobies a few minutes later

There's a close-up of "the pope" at the very beginning. He doesn't look like Roger to me.

nor I
but Im not even sure thats the Polish production, its just a youtube link I found last time Ca Ira came up (probably three years ago)
considering how huge the online floyd community is, theres not much discussion at all about Ca Ira

Yes, I don't think Ca Ira was received too well. I haven't listened to it since I got a promo copy of it back when it was released! :shock:

Oh, yes the boobies are GREAT!!! <ii> <ii>

Seriously though, I do have a copy of part of the performance from its live debut and I have to say, the visuals would help me sit through it. Just the album alone is a bit much for me.
