As we acknowledge that many of the people reading are new to David’s recent album, never mind his career outside of Pink Floyd, it might be of genuine interest to make others aware of the sheer depth of material that David has contributed to down the years.
Acts as varied – and wonderful – as Dream Academy, Elton John, Roy Harper and John Martyn, to name just a few… All have called upon David to lend a hand, both in the studio, and on stage.
In return, David has been fortunate to have been able to call upon some fine musicians to compliment his own material, such as Phil Manzanera, pictured above on the ‘On An Island’ tour.
So, if you have a favourite song, don’t keep it to yourself. Others may be interested in locating it, particularly in this age of digital downloads and easy access to music that, in many cases, you once had to hunt down (not that finding the ‘Arnold Layne’ single in North America didn’t require a map and compass, we fully appreciate).
There really is an A (Arcadia) to Z (Zevon, Warren) to consider here, so please tell us about these collaborations. There are some surprising ones.
No long lists, though. Just tell us a song or two and why you’d recommend it to anyone who hasn’t heard it before.
