Much obliged. On second thought, I would prefer that to be 2005 Live8, in 1985 the trio would play it without Rick. Also, 2005 is vinyl revival age too (the 12" idea).

Shine On (1-9), as a single song in one go, would work beautifully too as the entire set 8)

Roger in June, 1984:
"I wouldn't dream of performing anything that embarrassed me. If somebody said to me now: "Right - here's a million pounds, go out and play 'Atom Heart Mother', I'd say: 'You must be fucking joking - I'm not playing that rubbish!' 'Cause then I really would be embarrassed."

Roger in March, 1985:
"Atom Heart Mother is a good case I think for being thrown into the dustbin and never listened to by anyone ever again!"

David Gilmour:"Atom Heart Mother was a good idea but it was dreadful. I listened to that album recently: God, it's shit, possibly our lowest point artistically. It sounds like we didn't have any idea between us, but we became much more prolific after it."

David Gilmour: ''I think Atom Heart Mother was a good thing to have attempted, but I don't really think the attempt comes off that well.''


And folks.....a few years/decades later 2008. David Gilmour plays Atom Heart Mother suite with Ron Geesin 2008 at Cadogan Hall



A whole AHM suite by Gilmour/Geesin'. Cadogan Hall 2008

The ultimate slice of self-assessment is Nick Mason's take on "It Would Be So Nice" (7", 1968):

"Fucking awful, that record, wasn't it?"

Nick Mason's Saucerful of Secrets should totally play that live as a gag.

Chelsea Festival on 15 June 2008 was the place to be. I am happy this one-off performance of "Atom Heart Mother" with David Gilmour happened. Great version to hear, what a joy.

On that audio-only video, what is the extra music in the last few minutes after the entire performance ends? Is that more from rehearsal?
[Edit: strike that question, it seems to be just a repeat of the last few minutes, for whatever reason]

Gilmour was probably referring to the album as a whole, since they wrote it from scratch in the studio. He did write the main sections of the title suite, and performed it at nearly every show for two and a half years. Not only did he make a guest appearance at one of Geesin's shows, but he also wrote an additional solo for it and coached the lead guitarist for the other shows, even lending him gear.

I am aware of only two shows, 14 and 15 June 2008 at the same spot, first one without Gilmour, the second one with him. That it quite an input for a one-off performance, kudos to Dave for this.
