David Gilmour’s superb guitar solo during ’Comfortably Numb’. This was shot during Pink Floyd's The Wall Tour in New York in February 1980. "I like live shots. They are the most effective shots because they’re the only ones that show you doing what you do rather than posing for a camera." (David Gilmour in ’The Moment’)
The New York Times stated "'The 'Wall' show remains a milestone in rock history though and there's no point in denying it. Never again will one be able to accept the technical clumsiness, distorted sound and meagre visuals of most arena rock concerts as inevitable" and concluded that "the 'Wall' show will be the touchstone against which all future rock spectacles must be measured."
Jill Furmanovsky says, “This picture was nearly lost to Pink Floyd history when their manager, acting on instructions from Roger Waters, tried to confiscate my roll of film after the gig. Luckily, he failed. David Gilmour’s chorus to the song ‘Comfortably Numb’, one of the few on that album with a co-credit, was nearly axed by Roger Waters. Luckily, it survived intact because the beautiful refrain “There is no pain you are receding…” is followed by one of the most sublime guitar solos in rock history.
This picture was taken as David played it on his Black Strat while perched on top of the wall.”
A traditional C-type print is a colour print made in a darkroom from a colour negative or transparency. It is produced on light sensitive paper using a chromogenic process. Before digital technology, these were the prints we all received from the pharmacies from our holiday films. C-type prints are archival and are still preferred by some photographers and collectors to digital art prints.

We aim to dispatch all our prints as soon as possible. If we have the requested print in stock we will arrange to post within a few days. However, in some cases we may require a photographer to sign or send us a print, it will take a little longer to be delivered. In these instances we will notify the customer of when they are likely to receive a print.
It you have any queries regarding delivery charges or need a print delivered by a specific date, please let us know and we will do our best to sort this out.
VAT (Value Added Tax) is a tax added to prints and other goods that are delivered to the UK.

A great print deserves a great frame. At Rockarchive we would be delighted to advise you on how best to select the right frame for your print. Please just let us know when you place your order or contact us once you have received your print and we will discuss the various options with you.
If you live in London we can arrange to get your print framed for you. Once the print is framed you can either collect it from our London Rockarchive Studio, in Kentish Town or we can arrange for it to be delivered to your London address (at an extra charge).
If you live elsewhere in the UK, we can arrange to get smaller sized prints framed and shipped to you. However due to postage regulations acrylic (eg perspex) rather than glass needs to be used in the frame.
If you live outside of the UK, we are sorry we are unable to ship framed prints to you.
For all framing enquiries please contact us at email@example.com or call us on +44 (0) 20 7267 4716
