ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
Roger Waters released his next album, “The Wall Live in Berlin,” on November 20, 2015. This is a live album featuring music from the Pink Floyd classic, “The Wall.” There is no denying that Mr. Waters is not one of the most talented, most accomplished singer-songwriter-poet-player and it’s always nice hearing him perform music he mostly created himself as the lead contributor to the band. The man has a superb group accompanying him and if you close your eyes and open your ears, you almost think you are listening to Pink Floyd on a powerful night. We hope you will seek this album out and consider adding it to your catalog so you can enjoy for years to come. Believe us, you will love it.
