This are the studio demo tracks the band drawn on to record the final mix of their "Wall" album: every track is a radically different. It includes loads of unedited mixes, never released tracks (merged into other songs), different lyrics, original sound collages etc… Without the full lush arrangements you get a good idea of what Roger Waters had in mind when he first conceived The Wall. It is a real surprise is to hear the band experimenting with all sorts of different ideas that didn't make it onto the final mix for most: various synth lines, weird sounds, raw guitars, strange sound collages etc… One can appreciate the massive task of editing and changing most of these songs to fit on the double album we all know. It is just like being in the studio with the Floyd, and it is "The Wall" like you have never heard it before!
