Mick Fleetwood & Friends concert – revised Blu-ray/CD/LP release date and cinema screenings

As you'll no doubt be aware, legendary drummer Mick Fleetwood enlisted an all-star cast for a spectacular, one-of-a-kind concert, in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust, which was held on Tuesday, February 25th at London's Palladium – shortly before Covid-19 affected life everywhere, and resulted in lockdowns in many countries. The bill for Mick Fleetwood Friends Celebrate The Music Of Peter Green And The Early Years Of Fleetwood Mac, included Billy Gibbons, David Gilmour, Jonny Lang, Andy Fairweather Low, John Mayall, Christine McVie, Zak Starkey, Steven Tyler, Bill Wyman, Noel Gallagher, Pete Townshend, Neil Finn, Kirk Hammett and many more. Legendary producer Glyn Johns joined as the executive sound producer and the house band featured Fleetwood himself along with Andy Fairweather Low, Dave Bronze and Ricky Peterson. Very sadly, five months after the concert, Peter passed away. For those who weren't able to attend the concert, three different editions were announced for release – a Super Deluxe Edition Box Set, with the entire show on 4LP, 2CD and a Blu-ray in a book (and copies ordered early included your choice of name in the concert documentary credits, a reproduction signed concert poster, and reproduction signed set list); a Blu-ray and 2CD set; and a 4LP set. These were originally slated for release on October 16th, 2020, but with Covid-19 affecting the production of the release, this has now been postponed to April 30th, 2021. You can still order the Super Deluxe Edition exclusively through Townsend Music's online store (https://mfaf.tmstor.es/?utm_source=sendinblue utm_campaign=MAIN__WC_240220__Artist_Stores_Mailer utm_medium=email%22). To order the other editions, you can either get them from Townsend’s store, or from the following Amazon stores (thus helping Brain Damage with a much needed contribution towards site running costs, at no extra cost to you!): MICK FLEETWOOD FRIENDS – Blu-ray & 2CD: Amazon UK (http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/B08NRXFSM3/braindamage-21) Germany (http://www.amazon.de/exec/obidos/ASIN/B08NRXFSM3/braindamage0f-21) France (http://www.amazon.fr/exec/obidos/ASIN/B08NRXFSM3/braindamageon-21) Italy (http://www.amazon.it/exec/obidos/ASIN/B08NRXFSM3/bradamonl-21) Spain (http://www.amazon.es/exec/obidos/ASIN/B08NRXFSM3/braidama01-21) MICK FLEETWOOD FRIENDS – 4LP: Amazon UK (http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/B08NRXFSM4/braindamage-21) Germany (http://www.amazon.de/exec/obidos/ASIN/B08NRXFSM4/braindamage0f-21) France (http://www.amazon.fr/exec/obidos/ASIN/B08NRXFSM4/braindamageon-21) Italy (http://www.amazon.it/exec/obidos/ASIN/B08NRXFSM4/bradamonl-21) Spain (http://www.amazon.es/exec/obidos/ASIN/B08NRXFSM4/braidama01-21) It is not available to order from Amazon.com or Amazon Canada. We suspect the Blu-ray won’t have any region coding on it though, so we think you should be fine to order if you aren’t in one of the countries above. We’ll try and get confirmation of this though. Plans were also in place for cinema screenings in early June this year, but again, these were impossible. March 23rd, 2021 is the revised date when you'll be able to watch the concert on the big screen. More details of this should be available soon via mickfleetwoodandfriends.com (https://mickfleetwoodandfriends.com/). Finally, here’s the official trailer for the release, including footage from the concert:

Saucerful Of Secrets’ Roundhouse recording & Floyd’s Delicate Sound on UK TV Saturday

Those of you in the UK and Ireland (and selected locations elsewhere who might have reception) have got their Saturday evening (November 21st) viewing sorted! Despite the selections in question being freshly released, the British free-to-air television channel Sky Arts (on Freeview, Sky, Virgin Media and other providers) are treating their viewers to a couple of crackers, perfect for those who haven’t yet bought either to check them out – try before you buy, to a degree. First, at 8pm, is the Restored. Re-Edited. Remixed version of Delicate Sound of Thunder. Running on Sky Arts for two hours, this is the stunning new version which came out in the Later Years box set, and on Friday, November 20th (the day before Sky’s broadcast), a standalone release on Blu-ray, DVD, 2CD, 3LP and deluxe 4-disc box (https://www.brain-damage.co.uk/latest/pink-floyds-delicate-sound-of-thunder-unboxing-video.html). For those who are yet to see just how different, and improved, the new version is, prepare to be amazed! Following on from Delicate Sound, at 10pm, is the recently released Nick Mason’s Saucerful Of Secrets: Live At The Roundhouse, which is available now on Blu-ray, DVD/2CD, and 2LP (https://www.brain-damage.co.uk/latest/nick-masons-saucerful-of-secrets-live-at-the-roundhouse-2lp-2cd-dvd-blu-ray-ci-2.html), and is (in our view) an essential purchase. The running time on Sky Arts for this is two hours and twenty minutes, but as with Delicate Sound, we don’t know if they will be interrupting proceedings to screen adverts at strategic points during the broadcast…

December 2020 issue of Italian/English Floyd fanzine Heyou now available

Just published is the latest issue (number 35 – cover date December 2020) of the Pink Floyd fanzine Heyou run by our friends over at the Italian website of the same name. The 52-page dual language magazine (in Italian and English), which is published every six months or so, catches up with things in the Floyd world. The magazine has a range of subjects as its major focuses, despite 2020 being a year when plans have changed dramatically for many people – musicians in particular, with Roger and Nick both having planned to be touring with their respective bands. The first feature looks at the collaboration between Polly Samson and David Gilmour – in particular the audiobook of A Theatre For Dreamers and David’s single, Yes, I Have Ghosts. This is followed by a lengthy review by The Second Disc of Nick Mason’s Saucerful Of Secrets: Live At The Roundhouse, which is (quite rightly) very enthusiastic about the release. There’s a detailed and fascinating look at the making of The Later Years box set, via an article from somethingelsereviews.com, which includes interviews with Aubrey ‘Po’ Powell, Damon Iddins, and Andy Jackson. A review of the Roger Waters Us + Them precedes the first part of a detailed article looking at the initial run of Wall concerts in 1980, and what happened during the shows. Finally, there’s a look at two of the Floyd related Record Store Day 2020 releases – Roger’s 1990 Berlin gig on vinyl, and the Floyd’s 7″ single of Arnold Layne recorded at the Syd Barrett tribute concert at London’s Barbican in 2007. More details of the Heyou fanzine can be found at www.heyou.it/fsubscrbd.html (http://www.heyou.it/fsubscrbd.html), where you can get individual copies, and subscription enquiries (four issues costing 35 euros within Europe, and 45 euros outside Europe) should go to durgaheyou@libero.it (mailto:durgaheyou@libero.it?subject=Heyou%20enquiry%20from%20BD%20visitor) – make sure you mention Brain Damage when you write!

More new music from Gilmour, Waters guitarist Chester Kamen

Last month, we told you about some new music from respected guitarist Chester Kamen (https://www.brain-damage.co.uk/latest/new-music-from-gilmour-waters-guitarist-chester-kamen.html). Amongst many other artists, Chester has toured with Roger Waters, joining his band in 2002 and playing on subsequent tours, and with David Gilmour on his 2016 Rattle That Lock tour. He first played with David back in 1985 during the Live Aid show – David and Chester were both part of Bryan Ferry’s band for that show (as was Jon Carin!). Chester has, like many musicians, kept himself busy whilst lockdowns and restrictions due to Covid-19 have called a halt to many things – in particular, live performance. Last month, he shared his recently finished new piece of music called Take This, that runs for over 23 minutes. Chester told us that Take This is the first side of an album he is currently working on – following, or inspired by, the old Floyd blueprint of one long piece and several songs on the flip side. The first of the songs on the second side of the album is now here – Brand New Day – which has a nice, optimistic feel to it (something we need in current times) and seems to have a bit of a Beatles-ish vibe to it. We’ll update you as he progresses with the rest of the album:
