Floyd Interpreted

Pink Floyd has been dominating my life lately, particularly their post-Barrett and pre-Darkside material. I found this video of "Atom Heart Mother" during one of my recent web stumblings and was pretty blown away. It's the "Concert au Conservatoire de Paris" recorded by a bunch of super talented young musicians, vocalists, and dancers back in March of 2003. I have never been a fan of the various rock/orchestra combos that have seeped into the mainstream over the past ten or so years, but this is done right and certainly would make Waters, Gilmour, Mason, and Wright gleam with pride. If you have 35 free minutes, this will be well worth your viewing. I'm hoping to locate a downloadable audio version of this.
