Pavillion de Paris, France - February 24, 1977
This is a recording of the third night from the Paris Pavillion series.
If one listens closely one can hear Roger scream out the number "15" during Pigs (3 Different Ones) right before the guitar solo at approximately 5 minutes and 11 seconds into the song. This fact is documented in a book called, "The Pink Floyd Encyclopedia" by Vernon Fitch. (Check out pages 383 and 384.) To find out more about Vernon Fitch's book goto the website: The Pink Floyd Archives. Supposedly, Roger screams out the number "14" during Pigs (3 Different Ones) on the 2/23/1977 show. A number can not be heard on the 2/22/1977 show according to Fitch.
Roger did this strange ritual just about every night during Pigs on the 1977 tour. Personally, I'd like to thank him for this quirky little deed - it helps us to better identify the recordings from this tour. What do all these numbers mean? I'm not sure really. Perhaps he is simply counting the number of shows on the '77 tour or maybe he is yelling out years. On the 2/25/77 show for instance, it sounds like he is yelling "1961." Maybe something significant happened on February 25, 1961, in Roger's mind. Who knows? Maybe he's just fucking with us.
