2 stars Pink Floyd's 'The Wall' was not just an album of course but a masterful film and I was always quite intrigued as to the missing songs from the film that never made it to vinyl. One of those songs was the Waters' composition When the Tigers Broke Free. It was a powerful part of the movie were Pink was going through his late father's war memorabilia and he finds a number of war trophies such as bullets, photos and the uniform. He dons the uniform as the song is heard quietly on the soundtrack and mimics his father's war look. The single here is the song that was missing from the double album and as such is quite a curio and worth hunting down.

The B side is another song lifted straight from the film and therefore is quite different from the studio version. Unfortunately it is only a short version of Bring the Boys Back Home and not really worth anything. In any case the single sleeve with screaming Pink and the aforementioned title track is well worth hunting this little treasure down for. Collectors will love it.
