Jokers Wild was a band formed during the mid-60s, featuring David Gilmour.
The other musicians were John Gordon (guitar), Clive Welham (drums), Tony Sainty (bass) and
David Altham (vocals).
In 1965, they recorded a one-sided mini LP with these 5 songs.
Note that David Gilmour played in other bands before joining Jokers Wild:
The Newcomers (early 60s) and then The Ramblers (in 1962-1963).

Part 1 and Part 2 are linked on this version, while there are in different places on the album
(with Part 2 on side one and Part 1 on side two!).

There's an alternate guitar solo in the middle of the song, followed by a sax solo that isn't on the
album version.
The last part with the repeated female vocal lines "these are the pros and cons of hitchhiking"
has 2 added lines (just after "oh babe, I must be dreaming again"): the first one with a saxophone
bit, the second one with a guitar bit.
The following lines are the same as on the album.

On the album version, right at the beginning of the song, there are two guys that can be heard in the background, asking to turn the Juke Box down.
One of the two guys says "hey, turn that f*** Juke Box down".
This sentence was edited out on the single version.

Jim Ladd's words at the very beginning were edited out.
The intro has 4 more bars. An instrumental part was added between the intro and the first verse (one instrumental chorus, one instrumental verse and one chorus with female vocals, singing "radio").
Another instrumental part was added between the second chorus and the guitar solo
(with some voices, including a loud sentence "The Fish Report with a Beat, in stereo!").
The ending is different from the regular version: there's no fade out, it ends abruptly with the words
"in stereo".

The song ends differently: the two lines "All in all it's just another brick in the wall" and "All and all you're just another brick in the wall" were added right after the guitar solo, to end the song abruptly (instead of the music fade-out and teacher's screams on the live album).

Only the vocals from the guests were kept (Roger re-recorded his own vocals).
The chorus after the second verse was edited, and the following instrumental part was edited out.

Primary source : "Amused to Death" album, released 1992
Source for the tree : "Amused to Death" CD
Roger Waters wanted to use some lines and "breathing effects" from Stanley Kubrick's "2001 :
A Space Odyssey", but Kubrick refused. This explains the backward message at the beginning on
"Perfect Sense": "Julia, however, in the light and visions of the issues of Stanley, we changed our minds.
We have decided to include a backward message. Stanley, for you, and for all the other book partners... (screamed sentence)".

Recorded : Oxnard, the Teatro, July 1998
Primary source : "Vagabond Ways" Marianne Faithfull album, released June 14, 1999
Source for the tree : "Vagabond Ways" Marianne Faithfull CD
This is the song Roger Waters "offered" to Marianne Faithfull.
It was composed during the early Floyd days, in 1968.
It begins with the words "Do you remember me, how we used to be...", exactly the same words than those used by Waters in "Your Possible Pasts", on "The Final Cut" album.
Note that this song features Roger on bass synth.
