RPWL - Plays Pink Floyd's 'The Man And The Journey' CD + DVD

SKU 28-GARM48.2
"Deluxe CD/DVD live release from the German prog rock band. For more than eighteen years RPWL have been an important element of the global artrock scene now and they have long become an inevitable presence on the stages of the world.
For their 2015/2016 History tour, RPWL have come up with something very special: Pink Floyd's legendary first concept show of 1969 was entitled The Man And The Journey. It is a true classic that, however, never managed to make it's way onto a sound carrier. RPWL have now revived that show - in the inimitable way that made RPWL famous themselves.
But that's only the first part of the story: RPWL bring along a brand new live release that contains the very The Man And The Journey show, filmed and recorded during a performance at de Cacaofabriek in Helmond,
Netherlands. The recording showcases a band in top form that brings the unorthodox set to life with playful lightness. RPWL take the audience on a trip through a human's life. From getting up in the morning, going to work, all the way to nightmares and a lot more: in the first part of the show the band lays out the regular course of a person's day. The second part, though, consists of the dreamlike spiritual contemplation of all the things that happened in the first part.
In the process the musical implementation proves extremely imaginative: during "Work" all kinds of utensils create sounds - even a toolbox is made to come to life musically. On songs like "Nightmare" - the song that later became famous as "Cymbaline" - the band amazes with fascinating ensemble playing. The improvised solos do not only show the individual virtuosity of the respective band member in breathtaking manner but they also demonstrate the degree of ease with which the band manages to master the atmospheric, dynamic and sound-related hurdles hidden in this extraordinary example of psychedelic music. The magnificent and perfectly embedded visuals further enhance the artistic experience: they beautifully accompany the band as well as the audience on this journey through the early works of Pink Floyd."
