I found 2 more great stocking stuffers just now.
PINK FLOYD will finish off a series of remastered albums on 180 Gram VINYL. The subtlety, nuance, and power of Pink Floyd should really be hear this way. These last 2, “Final Cut” and “Momentary Lapse of Reason” go back to the Pontiac Silverdome, again, for some big shows. Actually, by the early 90’s, I remember Pink Floyd sounding pretty good in the Dome. Their spacey style helps too.
How’d they get their name? One night our “Floyd” guys were doing a show and found out backstage one of the other bands was also called “The Tea Set”, just like them. Syd Barrett guitarist and early leader, had these 2 blues albums in his collection. They were by PINK Anderson and The FLOYD Council.
In true a Spinal Tap moment, the name Pink Floyd was born.-
