I found this a while ag when I first learning the parts for Dark Side of the Wall and I have to say that no matter how much I like Miss Dulfers playing, I really don't like this version. I know she keeps vaguely to the original, it's just too....um... twiddly for me. I don't think she was asked back to do more either
I like it...
But I some how bypassed Floyd in my teens and there after when many of my friends loved them. I don't think I had any patience and couldn't get passed 30 secs of a track.
So my opinion is that of a person who's thinks he's neutral but probably has slight bias and loyalty toward Candy.
Also, as someone who sports no hair myself, I think Dave Gilmour looks much cooler with hair. This is probably the first time I've seen him with hair (such is my attention to Floyd). There has been a fair amount of footage over the past few years on the box where he has not so much... and thats the only reason I know.
Oh well....off to track down the Dick Parry version now then ...ta!!ra!!
I do think that a Tenor Sax would have been better and something that kept a similar pace to the rest of the song - needed a Snake Davis or Pete Thomas really. I understand why I never got into Pink Floyd listening to this but an interesting post nevertheless.
No offence taken about you in any way liking Pink Floyd - did not feel any attempt at being converted. I just think that Candy Dulfers improvisation was ill-judged and that Alto Sax was not the best choice for a solo.
