London Orion Orchestra 《Pink Floyd’s Wish You Were Here Symphonic》 Decca 4789517


Crossover再一次的成功範例

把Pink Floyd的音樂交響樂化其實早有前科,今次由London Orion Orchestra演奏並由Peter Scholes指揮及編曲的Pink Floyd交響樂則把重點放在樂隊的經典唱片《Wish You Were Here》之上,並且請來Alice Cooper、Dave Fowler、Stephen McElroy及Rick Wakeman助陣,炮製出一張頗具特色的Pink Floyd交響樂作品。全碟重心是《Shine On You Crazy Diamond》,Dave Fowler與Stephen McElroy深得David Gilmore的精髓,其結他彈奏幾可亂真。不過以Alice Cooper作為主音歌手似乎不大合適,我嫌他稍欠原作唱腔那份頹唐韻味。Bonus track《Eclipse》來自《The Dark Side Of The Moon》,一首純樂器演奏作品。葉積奇
