Morrison's performance on this number was epic.

58 Comfortably Numb - Roger Waters
59 The Great Gig in the Sky - Clare Torry

What an amazing, emotional vocal by Torry, who only needed 2 and 1/2 takes to sing it! This is no boring part of this song and her voice makes you want to listen to it over and over again. And Torry thought she did a bad job at first, amazingly!

Just about acceptable, I suppose/

An astounding female vocal by Clare Torry. Her range and emotion will never be matched. A true classic of all time.
