“Has anyone seen these orchestral albums?”
There are currently three albums of orchestral cover versions of Pink Floyd songs, two played by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, and the other played by the London Philharmonic Orchestra. The band itself was not involved with any of these.
* _Orchestral Maneuvers_ (previously titled _Objects of Fantasy_) Arranged, conducted, and produced by David Palmer, who did similar albums of Jethro Tull, Yes and Genesis. The album includes “Run Like Hell,” “Another Brick in the Wall, pt.1,” “The Happiest Days of Our Lives,” “Another Brick in the Wall, pt.2,” “Goodbye Blue Sky,” “Money,” “Hey You,” “Wish You Were Here,” “On The Turning Away,” “Shine On You Crazy Diamond, pts.1-5,” and “When The Tigers Broke Free/Eclipse.”
Generally, it’s not bad, but sometimes it borders on “elevator music.” Interesting listening, at the least. A few of the tracks contain vocals. Also on the album are Steve Hackett (from Genesis), and Clare Torry.
* _Hits of Pink Floyd_ Arranged and conducted by Hermann Weindorf. It includes “Shine On You Crazy Diamond,” “Money,” “Us and Them,” “Hey You,” “Another Brick in the Wall,” “Wish You Were Here,” “Time,” “The Great Gig in the Sky,” and “In the Flesh.”
While such things are, of course, subjective, this album has generally received better reviews than _Orchestral Maneuvers_. It’s also, to my knowledge, only currently available in Europe.
* Us And Them: Symphonic Pink Floyd Arranged by Jaz Coleman (of Killing Joke); conducted by Peter Scholes; produced by Youth (also of Killing Joke). The tracks are “Time,” “Brain Damage,” “Another Brick In The Wall, Part Two,” “Comfortably Numb,” “Breathe In The Air,” “Money,” “The Great Gig In The Sky,” “Nobody Home,” “Us And Them,” “Time (The Old Tree With Winding Roots Behind The Lake of Dreams Mix).”
Overall, a very solid and worthwhile piece of work, surprisingly (and happily) free of the “elevator music” effect usually created by symphonic albums. Many of the tracks resemble the sort of work John Williams does on Steven Speilberg adventure movies, big sweeping movements with soaring instrumentation. Cover art and design was done by Roger Dean (who is known for his distinctive style seen on Yes album covers.) The album’s extensive liner notes include Coleman’s personal notes on each track.
Also in the area of orchestral versions of Floyd songs, The London Symphony Orchestra recorded an arrangement of “Another Brick in the Wall” for the _Classic Rock – Rock Classics_ album.
Some of these are radio discs, some are promos, and some are legitimate, limited edition official releases.

NOTE: Some interview discs feature pictures of old (Syd-era) Floyd, but contain interviews with AMLoR-era Floyd members. For example, the “Limited Edition Picture Disc Interview,” part of the TALKING PICTURE series, lists two tracks:
: Interview 1981 [discussing _The Wall_ and beginnings of film]
: Interview 1986 [discussing AMLoR]
The disc has pictures of very young Roger, Nick, Syd, and Rick. Also, track 1 is in fact from 1980.
Also, Rockline shows were done with Gilmour & Mason for AMLoR, DSoT, and the Shine On box set. A Rockline special for Gilmour’s About Face was done, as well as shows with Waters for his Pros and Cons and Radio KAOS albums, plus a Rockline special for the Berlin performance of The Wall in 1990.
The Album Network broadcast the world premiere of Amused to Death (27aug92) hosted by Bob Coburn, a Division Bell press conference (3feb94) hosted by Coburn with Steve O’Rourke and Mark Brickman, The Division Bell world premiere (30mar94) hosted by Redbeard with the band, and the p.u.l.s.e world premiere (1jun95) hosted by Dan Neer with Gilmour and Mason.
