Only Roger Waters came up with a song worthy of the name, the wistful, acoustic Grantchester Meadows. EMI were so unimpressed they hurriedly added a live album, but even onstage the band were floundering for a direction.
They raked over the psychedelic ashes but the trip was audibly over apart from Careful With That Axe Eugene which created its own suspense. They get the notes right but the spirit wrong. Another soundtrack to another movie about another bunch of hippies, this time looking for a lost tribe in the remote Andes which is probably where the film, titled La Vallee , has been buried. The results are largely lightweight but Waters brings a more thematic approach to the album and Gilmour gets to hone what would become his trademark soloing style.
There are also moments of deja-vu, not least on the title track which was shamelessly ripped off by a Denim aftershave advert in the late 80s. It remains legendary for its extraordinary visual impact and the music had to fit the technical requirements of the show as tightly as any soundtrack the band had worked on.
Not surprisingly The Wall Live sticks closely to the original album. Later editions titled Masters of Rock were released in in France , Germany ,  Italy ,   and the Netherlands ,  to capitalise on the success of The Dark Side of the Moon. It is one of the Masters of Rock series of budget EMI compilations with identical titles, each volume for a different artist.
Two different sleeve designs were used: one by Herman Baas based on the picture from the centre of the album sleeve for Meddle , with Syd Barrett's face superimposed over the original photo of David Gilmour, who had not yet joined the band during most of the period covered by the album; and a later edition with the title filling the front cover.
The latter edition is titled Masters of Rock, Volume 1 ; subsequent volumes of Masters of Rock featured other artists. Both The Best of edition and Masters of Rock are made from the same master tape and matrix 5C and were notable for containing the first stereo release of " Apples and Oranges " and " Paintbox ", this latter also appearing a year later on Relics.On Echoes: The Best of Pink Floyd, a somewhat shortened version of the song segues into Syd Barrett's "Bike". The segue is accomplished by cutting from the church bell at the end of "High Hopes" to a new bicycle bell sound effect before "Bike" begins. A 7-inch vinyl version of the single was released on a transparent record.
