About a minute was cut from In The Flesh? right before the album’s release. The movie restores almost 20 seconds of the missing parts.
A short piano intro from The Thin Ice was cut from the album. And the track almost became a second recurring theme for the The Wall album.
A short intro was cut from Another Brick In The Wall Part 1, a track with a fascinating evolution from concept to finished track that effected the overall story arc of The Wall.
Happiest Days Of Our Lives is not on Roger Waters’ original Wall demo and was added later. It makes its first appearance by the work’s second production demo. A slightly different edit was used in the film.
How a #1 single was made. Most of the early recordings had only one verse and chorus. There was never a true extended studio version released, but some slightly longer versions were.
Mother is one of the tracks from Roger Waters’ original demo. There are a couple of great alternative and long versions of the track available.
Goodbye Blue Sky is a deceptively tranquil track that goes back to the original Wall demo. Other than the vocals, it sounded pretty much as it does on the album.
Empty Spaces was originally intended as a reprise of “What Shall We Do Now?”, sequenced before “Another Brick Part 3” near the end of Side 2.
“What Shall We Do Now?” was cut just before release of The Wall. The studio version has never been released on album, CD, or digital and can only be found on the movie soundtrack.
Even in its edited, obscured form, this Waters/Gilmour rocker has been a rock radio staple since the album was released. Fortunately, a couple of the little-known single releases let us rebuild and hear the entire unobscured track.
