"High Hopes" is a song from the 1994 Pink Floyd album, The Division Bell, written by David Gilmour and Polly Samson.
I was hesitating for monthes before reaching the decision to record this cover, because this song is a monument, and covers can be wearisome for listeners. I loved to do that aniway.
No fewer than 30 tracks to mix !)
BUT the instrumental part is nothing without vocals, and great ones.
So I asked to my friend Dylan, who accepted kindly to put his great vocals over the song.
I created a special guitar solo after the sanged part.

In the original piece, Pink Floyd manager, Steve O'Rourke, who lobbied to be included on one of the group's albums, appears at the end with Gilmour's stepson, Charlie, who hangs up a telephone on O'Rourke. You can find that here so...

Thanks a lot again, Eric.

Hope you like smiley smiley)

Congratulations to you both on such a good cover. I like the way you've managed to add your own touches to the song without altering it greatly.

Very nicely done. smiley

Wow Patrick, such a huge undertaking of a song. An inspired choice to have Dylan sing on this too. Like Etgilles, I love hearing him in a different context. Really superb production.

This is really in the spirit of the original and yet made so different by Dylan's lovely vocals. Absolutely worthwhile and insightful. Dig it totally!

This is a superlative take on a classic with the production, performance and the whole nine yards.
I never would have thought of Dylan for the vox but WOW! What a great choice and match up!!
Now, I couldn't imagine anyone else doing this cover any better.
I wish we could download this.

I spent some time to compare your cover with the original. BTW, it is great to hear them both together. Congratulations, this is a wonderful version, thorougly arranged and performed. You could go directly on stage with Pink Floyd and join the band. Excellent!!

Passing by...saying a big thank you to you all..and sharing kind words with Pat.

As some of you noticed...Pink Floyd is not exactly right up my alley (actually i dont even know their albums and works...hehe)...but it's always fun to try...and branch out sometimes.

Merci Patrick. One more time...

Much thanks to you all for the cool comments, on behalf of Dyl and me.
And of course to the pink flamingos for their so attaching and inspiring musics.
My own highest hope is that Rich Wright can listen to that quietly now.

Une mention particulière à  toi, Éric le Païs, pour m'avoir permis de mener ce projet à  son terme. Il y avait des années que je voulais faire ce morceau, c'est fait et sans le chant, il n'est rien : je peux désormais retourner me reposer en paix ! Merci mon gars.
