I was watching the Pulse version of Comfortably Numb last night for no particular reason. I prefer the album version but that live rendition is amazing.

Ah, that's different now. The studio track isn't what I'd describe as ideal listening in that environment.
I did find some Albert Ayler on a pub jukebox once ... but am unwelcome there now. It's only music said I
And I did see Mayhem in a pub after all ...

So why do people think the second solo on Comfortably Numb so special?

Listened to it a few times recently and can't fault it, but the best solo? Really?

I thought just as it got properly emotive it faded out.

On a separate note. I've listened to The Division Bell a few times and the Echoes best of since we had the Floyd chat and decided that David Gilmour and his guitar were the best things about the band so rather than buying more Floyd albums i bought two Gilmour solo albums - On a Beach and Rattle that Lock.

Itís the PULSE version I love, speaking from a guitarists POV, it wipes the floor with anything by popular fretwankers like Satch, Vai, EVH, Malmsteen etc, Gilmour proves that you donít need to play a million notes a second and tap the fretboard like some kind of demented idiot to make the guitar sing

Also, when those four notes in Shine on you Crazy Diamond ring out (PULSE again), it never fails to make the hairs stand up on my arms, even watching our local tribute band Off the Wall playing it does the same

I agree there regarding speed merchants but what makes it better than say, Gary Moore's Parisienne Walkways which is a personal fave of mine. Or is it just down to individual taste?



I sold my Pulse album when the light stopped er' pulsing. Wish i'd kept it now.

Both fantastic, but I think for me personally itís because I enjoy playing it, Iíve never bothered learning all of Parisienne Walkways other than the main intro part, so thatís a big factor.

One of my favourite concerts is Gary Mooreís Phil Lynott tribute-One Night in Dublin, especially when Brian Robertson and Moore trade solos during Emerald, me and our other guitarist do that when we play it live except heís fretwanker so he does his best EVH impression whereas I try and emulate Robertson for my parts, try being the operative word!

I haven't seen One Night in Dublin. Thanks for the recommendation (or mentioning it anyway). Is it this one pictured below?

Have you heard Motorhead's Another Perfect Day album? It's the only one Brian Robertson played on and he takes their sound to a whole new musical level.

Although Lemmy wasn't so keen.

Recording Another Perfect Day was ****ing torture. Brian, he'd take seventeen hours doin' a guitar track. It ****in' took so long compared with the other albums. And then when it was released everybody ****ing hated it

Thatís the one yeah, most if not all of it is on YouTube and itís been shown on BBC4 or Sky Arts a few times, well worth a watch. Incidentally, we also occasionally play Donít Believe a Word as Moore does it here which is a combination of his slow version and Thin Lizzyís rockier version, always goes down a treat

Iíve not heard that MotŲrhead album, not much of a fan tbh
