the wall for the first time
Posted 5/15/2011 by youphoric
do you remember the first time you heard the wall?
the truth is, i'm only 29 years old, and the majority of people i talk to on a daily basis probably haven't listened to all four sides of the album in its entirety. not trying to be high and mighty at all -- but if you have the opportunity, and the turntable, bring it to someone new this week. a lucky portion of the earthly population witnessed Waters+Gilmour perform Comfortably Numb last week. i witnessed some friends hear it in context on vinyl for the first time just hours ago.
there will never be another album like it, the digital age has ensured that. i may sound overdramatic, but will my grandchildren cling to the remaining copies of The Wall, and fill concert halls for reproductions of the album? will it be a sold out show or will the producers struggle to fill seats?
do your part with your friends and children to ensure it is the former. you will rediscover the album yourself in the process, i assure you. :)
