In the end of 1976 Snowy was asked to be the second guitarist for the
In The Flesh tour. As a sort of audition Roger had him play a solo
which formed the bridge between the first and the second couplet of
Pigs on the Wings. This version ended up on the 8-track cartridge of
and can also be found on the
Total Eclipse Roio-box and a remixed version of that song appears on
Snowy's new compilation album Gold Top.
During the gigs of the In The Flesh tour (1977) Snowy
played bass (he opened the show with Sheep),
twelve string guitar and acoustic guitar.
On roio's he can especially be heared during the extended solo
of Pigs on the Wings II and part 8 of Shine on You Crazy Diamond.
After the notorious last concert of the tour, in Montreal (July 6, 1977),
the band led by Snowy played a long, sad blues as music for the people to
leave to. David Gilmour had walked of stage to watch from the P.A in

One of these tracks can be found on Snowy's
