Pink Floyd – Off The Wall is
a rare 1979 US eight track, radio-friendly white-label promo sampler LP for The
Wall album that was distributed mainly to radio stations in 1979 and the early
80’s. The album featured extended versions of several tracks, along with clean
intros and outros. Rather than blend track-to-track, the album was banded with
gaps between the tracks. A shorter running time allowed the vinyl to to be
mastered with deeper-cut grooves for better sound quality.
Among the cool stuff
contained in this sampler’s eight tracks were a longer version of “Run Like
Hell” with a clean opening and cold fade without crowd noises, a version of
“Young Lust with a clean outro without the phone call dialog on top of it, and
a version of “Goodbye Blue Sky” that had a clean intro with no sound effects.
One of the FM stations I
worked at in Los Angeles back in the day had a copy of this beauty. Currently,
it is one of the better Pink Floyd vinyl rarities out there. Expect to spend
$$$$ when you find one, as you just did, right here and now (consider yourself
was different about this disc from any other? Here’s the track-by-track
Another Brick In
The Wall Part 2 — The “hit.” Nothing special here. This version lacked the 9-second
extended instrumental intro of the single version. It had the same ending as
the single version — a fade out towards the end of David Gilmour’s guitar solo.
Goodbye Blue Sky — It lacked the pastoral
sound effects at the beginning of the track. The acoustic guitar intro was
clean for about the first 9 seconds. On the album/CD version, sound effects of
birds and bomber fleets could be heard until the synths kicked in. The outro
was a wash. On this LP, the song faded out completely at the same spot in the
music where we would have heard the first notes of “Empty Spaces” on the CD.
Young Lust — The track started with
the same the pickup beat and went straight into the vocal as the album/CD
release. It clocked in at 3:25 on this release. Basically, it was the same
running time as the original LP version, but the pick-up note at the beginning
lacked the crossover from “Empty Spaces” and the outro was clean, lacking the
dialog of phone call back home on top of the music.
One Of My Turns — A clean version of the
track with nothing obscuring the beginning or the the end. The opening synth
was unobscured and had a faster attack that faded in quicker. The first 6
seconds of the track was clean and lacked the dial tone sound effects of the
album version. At the end of the track, the echo and reverb of Roger Waters’
vocal “Why are you running away…?” sustained for about 3 seconds longer than
the album version.
Hey You — No different than the album
version. The vocal echo of “…we fall” faded out just before the opening sound
effects would have started on the album version of “Nobody Home”.
Nobody Home — No different than the
Comfortably Numb — No
different than the album version.
Run Like Hell — This extended album
version of “Run Like Hell” had a clean opening and cold fade without crowd
noises. This version had the complete, extended 8-bar intro with additional
guitar “flair.” The outro was extended and had the full guitar refrain which
repeated twice (instead of once) for the full 16 bars.
