Happy birthday, Jon Carin!

Jon Carin (https://www.facebook.com/joncarinofficial), who today celebrates his birthday (Wednesday, October 21st). The talented multi-instrumentalist has been a key part of the Pink Floyd
operation for many years, first working with David back in 1985 at the London Live Aid show, with both of them in Bryan Ferry’s band, and more recently toured with David Gilmour on his On An Island and Rattle That Lock tours, and Roger Waters on his Dark Side Of The Moon, The Wall Live, and Us And Them tours. These all saw Jon singing, playing keyboards, guitar and more during the shows. As many of you will be aware, recently Jon released two new songs on Spotify (https://www.brain-damage.co.uk/latest/two-new-songs-released-by-jon-carin-on-spotify.html) which have been extremely popular, based on the feedback that we have received so far. Recently, the world marked what would have been John Lennon’s 80th birthday, and Jon recorded his version of Gimme Some Truth, a protest song Lennon released in 1971 on his Imagine album. Jon did all the instrumentation on his version of this song. You can hear Jon’s version on Spotify now, and here’s Jon’s Spotify Artist’s page (https://open.spotify.com/artist/4EK0FdWQv1oH211xxqNoka?si=pK_kvu2VQtGp2nyJ0qiRGw).

Roger Waters: Amused To Death coming on four 200g LPs

Originally due to be available in 2018, a special box set edition of the Roger Waters 1992 album Amused To Death is now due to be released on April 9th, 2021. The album is being pressed on four, 200 gram heavyweight vinyl pressed at 45rpm with the aim to maximise the audio quality. This audiophile treat features remastered audio completed by longtime Roger Waters/Pink Floyd collaborator and co-producer James Guthrie and is said to be incredibly detailed. It’s been pressed at Quality Record Pressings, with updated cover and gatefold art by Sean Evans, Roger’s creative director. Due to the specialist nature of this release, it currently seems to only be available from a couple of outlets for pre-order. You can order it direct from AcousticSounds.com (https://store.acousticsounds.com/d/140357/Roger_Waters-Amused_To_Death-Vinyl_Box_Sets), the US based associated store for Quality Record Pressings. Those in Europe may prefer to use SNVinyl.co.uk (https://snvinyl.co.uk/Roger-Waters-Amused-To-Death-200g-45rpm-4LP-Box-Set) as this might avoid hefty customs import charges, and lower postage costs. If we hear of other retailers with this, we will update this news item…
