“Face to Face” will be a two-disc DVD/CD set of the band’s appearance on German TV’s “Rockpalast” program. The performance was recorded at Marché International du Disque et de l’Edition Musicale (MIDEM) in Cannes on Jan. 29, 1986.

The discs will be released Sept. 16. The package will also be available digitally.

In addition to Townshend solo songs and classics from The Who, the band performs Gilmour’s “Blue Light” from his ’84 “About Face” album.

The band includes: Townshend (vocals, guitar); Gilmour (guitar, vocals); Peter Hope-Evans (harmonica); Chucho Merchan (bass); Simon Phillips (drums); John Rabbit Bundrick (keyboards); Jody Linscott (percussion); The Kick Horns: Simon Clarke, Roddy Lorimer, Tim Sanders, Pete Beachill and Dave Plews; and backing vocalists Billy Nicholls, Ian Ellis, Chris Staines, Gina Foster and Coral Gordan.

“Blue Light” will appear on the DVD and the CD.

Thanks to Ian Schulze for the heads-up.

Dame Vera Lynn honored

Posted August 3, 2016 by Floydian Slip

lynn_1962Dame Vera Lynn (pictured in 1962) was made a Member of the Order of the Companions of Honour in the Queen’s Birthday Honours list.

Lynn, 99, received the honor at her home in Ditchling. She was unable to travel to Buckingham Palace.

Lynn was in her 20s when she helped boost the spirit of the British during World War II with hits such as “We’ll Meet Again.”

Roger Waters name-checked her on Pink Floyd’s 1979 album “The Wall” in the song “Vera,” singing, “Does anybody here remember Vera Lynn? Remember how she said that we would meet again some sunny day?”

“In accepting this award, I do so in remembrance of all our wonderful brave boys who made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom, and also in honor of all the children affected by cerebral palsy,” Lynn said.
