Have to say it seems to 'fit' well on The final Cut......

yes full of rejected, not very good and depressing tunes...

The announcement of these releases should tie in nicely with a heavily-rumoured guest appearance at tonights Roger Waters show.

Great publicity.

If it happens.

I'm going to need to free up lots of space on a hard drive and get my download ratios up !

Downloaded music.. :(........... will sound just as bad as "Brit Floyd" did at Preston Guild Hall last week.  Much better once the wireless internet connection was unplugged from the sound desk.

The song was written at the same time as The Wall,  but was rejected by the other members of the band on the grounds that it was too personal.   :) It was  included in the movie version of The Wall and first released as a separate track on a 7" single  on mine it is labelled "Taken from the album The Final Cut" but was not included on that album until the 2004 CD reissue.
Perhaps it was too personal for the Final Cut too !  :)
There was going to be a Soundtrack album for The Wall movie but it was shelved, this was to feature When The Tigers Broke Free, Empty Spaces (missing from the original Wall album), Bring The Boys Back Home (film version), In The Flesh? (Bob Geldoff vocal) In The Flesh (Film version Bob Geldoff vocals), Stop (Bob Geldoff vocals)
The album was not released and roger Waters used the title for his next project.
