CD5

1 - Merry Xmas Song (uncredited) 02:05
Recorded : ?
Primary source : ?
Source for the tree : "All Movement is Accomplished" RoIO CD
Impromptu song, probably sung by Nick Mason, with John Peel and Alan Stiles (Floyd
roadie to whom the song "Alan's Psychedelic Breakfast" on "Atom Heart Mother" album is
dedicated). Some say it was recorded during the Zabriskie Point sessions in Rome,
December 1969. Other think it's from 1974 or 1975. One thing is almost certain though:
it must have been recorded in December... ;-)

2 - Shine on you Crazy Diamond (Gilmour, Waters, Wright) - part 1 03:52
Recorded : London, Abbey Road Studios, January - July 1975
Primary source : "Have A Cigar" French single, released 1975
Source for the tree : "Have A Cigar" French single
It fades out just before "Syd's theme" (the "four notes" guitar riff).

3 - Shine on you Crazy Diamond (Gilmour, Waters, Wright) - promo edit 06:09
Recorded : London, Abbey Road Studios, January - July 1975
Primary source : "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" promo single, released 1975
Source for the tree : "Anthology I" RoIO CD
This version fades in during Part 3 (last guitar solo before vocals), continues with the first
verse of Part 4 ("Remember when you were young ... you legend, you martyr, and
shine"), then jumps to Part 7 (third verse: "Nobody knows where you are ... for truth and
delusion, and shine"), and fades out during the end of Part 8.

4 - Shine on you Crazy Diamond (Gilmour, Waters, Wright) - 1981 edit 10:35
Recorded : London, Abbey Road Studios, January - July 1975
Primary source : "A Collection of Great Dance Songs" compilation, released November 23, 1981
Source for the tree : "A Collection of Great Dance Songs" CD
Part 3 (last guitar solo before vocals) is skipped, Part 4 and Part 7 are linked (so that the
three verses are continuous), and there's a fade out after the last verse (just before Part 8).

5 - Shine on you Crazy Diamond (Gilmour, Waters, Wright) - UK short version 04:48
Recorded : London, Abbey Road Studios, January - July 1975
Primary source : "Selected Tracks from Shine On" UK promo CD, released 1992
Source for the tree : "Selected Tracks from Shine On" UK promo CD
On the promo sampler, this version is called "radio edit", but it's in fact a short version of
the song (there is no "edit"): it fades in at the beginning of Part 4 ("Remember when you
were young ...") and fades out at the end of Part 5 (sax solo).

6 - Shine on you Crazy Diamond (Gilmour, Waters, Wright) - US short version 05:13
Recorded : London, Abbey Road Studios, January - July 1975
Primary source : "Shine On - Selections from the Box" US promo CD, released 1992
Source for the tree : "Shine On - Selections from the Box" US promo CD
This version is also called "radio edit" on the US promo sampler, although it's slightly
different from the "radio edit" on the UK promo sampler. Again, there's no "edit" and it's
in fact a short version: it fades in during the end of Part 3 (last guitar solo before vocals)
and fades out early during Part 5 (sax solo).

7 - Shine on you Crazy Diamond (Gilmour, Waters, Wright) - "storm" mix 27:48
Recorded : London, Abbey Road Studios, January - July 1975
Primary source : ?
Source for the tree : unknown gen copy
Parts 1 to 9 linked together, remixed with storm noises in the background. It is said that
this track was remixed by or for the BBC, but it is probably a fake. However, it has
acquired a certain fame in the trading circle of Pink Floyd fans. We included it here, in
order to let you make your own opinion.

8 - Shine on you Crazy Diamond (Gilmour, Waters, Wright) - "to the galaxy" 01:22
Recorded : London, Abbey Road Studios, January - July 1975
Primary source : "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" radio show
Source for the tree : unkown gen copy
During one of the scenes in the "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" radio series (an
adaptation of Douglas Adams' novel), the opening of "Shine on you Crazy Diamond" can
be heard in the background and one of the characters (Arthur) says "Ford, do you realize
that robot can hum like Pink Floyd ?".

9 - Have A Cigar (Waters) - short version 04:13
Recorded : London, Abbey Road Studios, January - July 1975
Primary source : "Have A Cigar" Italian single, released 1975.
Source for the tree : "Have A Cigar" Italian single
Note that the various European releases of this single have shorter or longer versions:
the French promo juke-box single is 04:50 long (it's nearly the complete version), the
Belgian single is 04:24 long and the Italian single is 04:13 long. All these European
versions fade out during the final guitar solo.

10 - Have A Cigar (Waters) - stereo edit 03:36
Recorded : London, Abbey Road Studios, January - July 1975
Primary source : "Have A Cigar" US single, released November 15, 1975

Four bars intro instead of eight bars (two small edits in the guitar and keyboards first
themes), plus an early fade out during the final guitar solo.

11 - Have A Cigar (Waters) - mono edit 03:33
Recorded : London, Abbey Road Studios, January - July 1975
Primary source : "Have A Cigar" US promo single, released November 15, 1975
Source for the tree : "Have A Cigar" US promo single
Same edit as above: four bars intro instead of eight bars, plus an early fade out during
the final guitar solo.

There's a backwards message at the start of "Empty Spaces": "Congratulations, you have

This version has some unreleased intro bars (on the album the track starts with the

once.

14 - Money (Waters) - 1981 version 06:41
Recorded : London, New Roydonia Studios, 1981

Recorded : 1982
Primary source : "When the Tigers Broke Free" single, released July 26, 1982
Source for the tree : "Roger Waters - The Wall Berlin '90" promo CD
This song is the only soundtrack extract from "The Wall" movie that was eventually
officially released. In the film, it was split into two parts (with more choir intro and
outro). The orchestra is mixed louder on this version, which also has more drum rolls.

17 - Bring the Boys Back Home (Waters) - single version 01:40
Recorded : 1982
Primary source : "When the Tigers Broke Free" single, released July 26, 1982
Source for the tree : "Total Eclipse" RoIO CD
This song was re-recorded for the film, without Roger's voice (there's only the choir). On
this single version, the orchestral bridge is longer than on the album version (also note
that the flute theme is not in the film version) and with three reprises of "Bring the boys
back home", when there's only one on the album.

Recorded : ?
Primary source : WKLS radio broadcast, Atlanta, March 17, 1983

Recorded : 1982
Primary source : "Not Now John" single, released April 30, 1983
Source for the tree : "A CD Full of Secrets" CD
Since the original version has lyrics that say "F*** all that", David Gilmour came back in
the studio to make a radio-friendly version ("Stuff all that") for the single release. Note
that they just recorded "Stuff all that" loud enough to drown the original, which is still
there. The intro is slightly different from the album version (no laugh), and this version
fades out before the lyrics "Where's the fucking bar John?".

20 - Not Now John (Waters) - promo edit 03:46
Recorded : 1982
Primary source : "Not Now John" Argentinian promo single, released 1983
Source for the tree : "Not Now John" Argentinian promo single
This version is not obscured (it has the F*** word). It begins directly with the vocals (no
intro), and the lines "Hold on John, I think there's something good on … it could be
reusable shows" were skipped.

21 - The Hero's Return (Waters) - parts 1 & 2 03:54
Recorded : 1982
Primary source : "Not Now John" single, released April 30, 1983
Source for the tree : "Total Eclipse" RoIO CD
The second part, with additional lyrics, is only available on the single.
