It's pretty sad that 'See-Saw' doesn't get much love. Oh, well.

Great album.  The Floyd never made a bad album, in my opinion.  My favorite from this one is Remember a Day.

Have you heard the live version of Set the Controls from Ummagumma and Live at Pompeii? Those ones are kind of stronger, and you may just as well like them better. There's also the live version from Roger's In the Flesh album, which has quiet a different arrangement, even with sax and female backing vocals. As for me, my very favourite version is the one from Pompeii.

You know, I tried the one on Ummagumma and on Live in Pompeii, but to no avail. I will do check out the In the Flesh version, though I don't know if the sax and female backing vocals are going to work. Thanks for the suggestions.

Well, Waters did a similar arrangement for Welcome to the Machine too (though I think the last one doesn't have sax... but it's got female vocals). On both songs I really didn't like them at first very much... but then I got used to them and now I find them really enjoyable, almost as much as the Floyd versions. But still, the minimalism of the Floyd versions wins for me, I feel it fits this songs better. But then again... who knows, some people may like Roger's versions better.
