back against the wall"Wall" tribute CD coming
Big names in progressive rock participate in rerecording of Floyd album

Purple Pyramid will release "Back Against the Wall," a rerecording of Pink Floyd's "The Wall" (1979) on Sept. 27.

The album will include contributions from Ian Anderson, Adrian Belew, Keith Emerson, Robby Kreiger, Rick Wakeman, Tommy Shaw, Steve Howe and others. Actor Malcolm McDowell ("A Clockwork Orange") will lend his voice to "The Trial."

The project is produced by Billy Sherwood (Yes). "My first thoughts were to maintain the integrity and credibility of the original," he explains. "I felt it was best for the project to cull musicians mostly from the progressive rock area of music."

Purple Pyramid is a subsidiary of Cleopatra Records. The label released "An All Star Lineup Performing the Songs of Pink Floyd" in 2002.

Purchase "Back Against the Wall" online now.
