short video and audio recording was made on Saturday and
Sunday in a far less stressful setting than the clip which
was filmed by the Dagenham Roundhouse crew a few weeks ago.
video was recorded on Saturday during the live take of the
initial guitar and vocal track. The final version contains
two vocal tracks and two acoustic guitar tracks, which were
added on Sunday. The whole recording took about four hours
from start to finish.
bass guitar and slide guitar tracks were played by Kevin
Sale of the 'Virtual Twelve' and the
camera was operated by Tina Jones.
Song' is one of my all time favourite Syd Barrett songs.
I don't like this arrangement as much as Syd's original
but it is one I invented to play alone on acoustic guitar,
without the original Pink Floyd piano and organ accompaniments.
The lyrics have also been modified slightly. This happened
by accident initially, following a Freudian slip I made
at home once, which Tina found amusing.
