A Momentary Lapse Classic Rock Pick
So many great albums have been created through the efforts of Pink Floyd. One of them in particular? 'A Momentary Lapse of Reason.'
On the Turning Away, One Slip and Learning To Fly were the biggies that came off the album, but the rest of the tunes are all gems. Back in 1987, the shoot for the album cover proved to be quite an undertaking.
Hundreds of hospital beds were lined up along a beach in Southern England. I can only imagine that took a long time to do, and if my history recollection is correct, it took two tries, since the first attempt was interrupted by inclement weather.
In the Fall of 1987, A Momentary Lapse of Reason was released, and came very close to reaching the top of the album charts in the United Kingdom and United States.
For this week's Classic Rock Pick, let's look in on Pink Floyd in concert at Nassau Coliseum in 1988, performing an amazing version of On The Turning Away.
